My car radio is not turn off when the car is turn off

This could be an issue with the ignition wiring. Most radios have 2 feeds. A 12v permanent live (often a red cable) and a switched 12v from the ignition (often a yellow cable). If the switched 12v is wired the wrong way round or linked to a permanent 12v then the radio won't switch off when you remove the key. Could be the ignition switch itself stuck on all the time also.

Was driving down the road and all of a sudden my sat. radio went off and it said ... ant. fault

and hasnt worked since? even in areas it has worked before? check your antenna and wire. if you possibly can, get a spare antenna and test it. if it works, you know you need to replace yours. if it doesnt work, you've got an issue with the radio itself.

Hey there! I had the same problem just the other day and removed the radio from the car over night.

Turns out the radio may have got too cold or a little damp! Whereabouts is your car stored overnight? Could be the reason why!

Either that or one of the buttons could be stuck. Hope this helps
