    Is the unit still on after you remove the key from the car? If so it might not be installed right. There is most likly a setting for it other wise but I dont know that model well enough. :-/

Radio dont turn off when key turn off .........what im doing wrong?

Did you recently install/have it installed and has it ever worked correctly?

What it sounds like is that the 12v constant and 12v switched/ignition wires may be connected in reverse. Normally the constant is what powers the memory of the radio so you don't have to enter your settings/presets every time you turn it on. The switched/ignition is what actually powers on/off the unit when you turn the car on/off. If these are switched the settings will be forgotten every time the car is turned off and the unit will stay on when the car is off.

You can check your wiring with a multimeter. With the car off, find what is supposed to be the constant, put the positive lead from the meter to that and the negative to ground (can be any metal in the dash). It should read 12v or just under. Now do the same with the switched/ignition wire. With the key off there should be no reading. When the key is turned on you should get a reading of 12v or just under.

If its not that then it would most likely be something wrong with the unit itself, which would have to be looked at by a technician from the manufacturer.

There is also a small chance it could be something with the vehicles door switch. Some cars will leave the radio on, after the car is turned off, until the door is open. If the door switch has shorted out/gone bad it could keep the radio powered on. Without knowing the make and model of the car it would be difficult for me to describe where the door switch can be found.

I hope this helps

Replace your battery in the remote. Dont leave something sitting on the remote that is pressing a button down, or it will drain your battery

AVIC-N1 opens to blanks screen and none of buttons work

It is probably the ribbon cable that you can see when the screen closes. This is a known problem and the part is sometimes hard to find. But is available.

Jensen vm9311 dvd indash volume is loud when i turn on car

Heres the best way to fix; Quote from manual "Programmable Turn-On Volume (Pg.12) This feature allows the user to select a turn-on colume setting regardless of the colume setting prior to turning the unit off. To program a specific volume level, push and hold the VOL/LOC/DV know (6) while the yellow volume bar is displayed on the screen. The unit will beep two times to confirm your turn-on volume setting." Ah i had the same problem. I turned to the manual and it worked for me :) Good Luck, Ern
