My mountaineer does the same thing when there is high humidity or it has rained alot. Once things dry out it is ok again. It must be a loose wire or faulty door switch that is humidity sensitive.

This mainly depends on the way the radio is wired into the car. If the radio is wired to a permanent live it will stay on when the key is removed, If the radio is wired to an ignition or an accessory circuit the radio will go off when the key is removed. Some radios have the facility to stay on for 20 minutes after the key is removed, Fiat Panda is a good example of this.

There is no actual "chime" for the backup warning. The chime is generated by the radio just like the "KEY IN IGNITION" or the "HEADLAMPS ON" chime. The Rear Parking Assist Moudle sends a signal to the BCM which requests the proper chime for the Radio to produce in the speaker(s).

For the 2001 Mercury Mountaineer, you will need a flat tool to remove the stereo cover. You must remove and disconnect the various connectors before removing the radio itself.

The radio in a Malibu Maxx can be removed by dismantling the dashboard panel. The radio will need to be disconnected from the wiring before it is removed from its mount.

The radio time would stay on if you had the keys in the ignition but the ignition was only turned halfway.

because you have the constant power and the ignition power crossed

The stock radio in an Acura needs to be taken to a shop to be removed, if you do not have any automotive training. The dashboard has to be removed to be able to take the radio out.รŠ

Cause theelectronic ignition system emits radio waves, the speed of ignition is related to how many rpmยดs the engine makes and therebye related to the frequency of the radio-waves your radio detects.

You need a special tool. Take it to most businesses that installs radio,s and they should have the tool.

Its on the right side of the hood. It runs under the hood and through the firewall to the back of the radio

Is it an "after-market" radio? It sounds like it was wired to a "hot" terminal that is not controlled by the ignition switch.

I just baught 2004 toyota tacoma and radio didn't work. The radio worked after I replaced a 15AM burned fuse, later I noticed the key got stuck in the ignition which wasn't a problem before i replaced the burned fuse. The only way I got the key out of the ignition was after a removed the newly installed fuse. Now every time i wanna listen to music i have to plug back the 15AM fuse, and unpluge it to remove it from ignition,, good exercises lol.

The radio face plate is removed by removing both climate control knobs, then the nuts are removed CCW from the shafts. The radio should be loose and slide forward until clear. Warning*- The gear shift should be out of park in d1, so park level w/ emerg. brake on!

As soon as a battery cable is removed ( negative first ) the computer programming is disrupted . The vehicle will need to relearn its idle , the preset radio stations will need to be reset etc.

you dont wait until you actually see a tornado you go to a low level room with a radio flashlights and mattresseslisten to the radio and what says about the warningif the warning has been cancelled then you may get out

Well sometimes the radio is hooked up to the ignition itself. It is just the ignition wire, if it has a disconnecting face plate then you can turn it off by taking the face plate off. Or if you would like, you can pull the radio out and disconnect the wire from the ignition and it will not still be on when you cut the truck off.
