You mast likely have an internal short in the radio causing the illumination control line to stay active. This has the possibility of draining your batteryand eventually doing some damage to the radio.

Turn key off and removed. Power stays on radio ,heater.


Hello? It sems that the wiring is not done properly. Make sure that the radio wiring is done correctly. We have 3 wires that are very important when it comes to radio wiring. We have vcc,acc and ground. Vcc has to connect to battery direct, this helps keep radio memory on all the time. acc goes to acc and this switches radio on and off when you turn the key. Ground goes to earth. The wiring harness color code depends on different radio makes and car makes as well but a professional should help you with this.

It sure sounds like you have a case of "sneak circuits"
These are usually caused by a bad ground somewhere and something is "grounding" through the light bulbs.
Have you changed any wiring or installed a stereo or some other accessory?
You might use a jumper wire and ground the dash and other areas to the negative battery post as a way to find the culprit.

All the wires are hooked up to my radio correctly but when i crank my car or turn the key back the radio doesn't come on. then when i cut the park lights on the speakers make some kind of flickering noise...


I think you need to check your power wires to your radio. This is a common mistake. There are several power wires to deal with. One wire stays hot to keep the clock and radio presets working. The second is Hot when the key is turned on. The third is hot when you turn on your lights for instrument lighting. If you connected this wire for your power source, You would have this problem you are describing. If it's wired correctly, Check the ground wire to the radio. Hope this helps.
