Default Keep radio playing when turning engine off.

I just bought a Peugeot 207 SW and I like it very much. But one thing is frustrating me!

Situation with my previous car (Ideal situation):
- I park my car at the parking lot at my train station where I commute to work. I turn the engine off and continue to listen to the radio for 5-10 minutes while I wait in the car until my train arrives. When it is time, I turn off the contact by taking the key out and the radio shuts off.

Situation with my 207:
- I park my car and turn off the engine. > Radio turns off I manually turn it back on with the button to continue listening. When I turn off the contact, the radio keeps playing and I have to turn it off manually. And of course when I return to my car and start the engine, the radio it still turned off and I have to turn it on manually..


Is there a solution to change this behavior? I'm not going to keep my engine turned on when I'm parked.

Every Peugeot I have had has behaved exactly the same.

Radio turns off with ignition, if you turn it back on, it will work for a short time, then the car will go into Eco mode.

The only option you would have is to switch the Ignition Live to a constant live at the back of the radio.

However if you did this, you would essentially override the Eco mode for the stereo, and if you left it on, it would stay on until your battery died.

Yeah I thought it was the same with all Peugeots.
I'm willing to switch the Ignition live with a constant live if this means the radio turns off when I remove the key.

Do you know which 12V source I can use for this?

There will be one in the same harness connecting to the stereo.

Its used for keeping time / date etc...

Normally red and yellow (red for ignition, yellow for constant). But check with a multi-meter.

Also, dont 'swap' them as you will start losing the time / date. Just make both connections with the constant live.

If it is used the keep the settings of the radio it means that it will stay live when I turn the engine off and remove the key.

I would like a live that turns off when I remove the key.

When you turn the radio on manually with the ignition off the radio will turn itself of after a preset time if you just get out the car it should also turn off when you lock the car meaning when you restart radio comes back on.

Swapping wires wont work due to the way the power is delivered

I just tried and it won't turn off when I lock the car. I don't like keeping it playing in order to use ECO-mode when I leave my car at a parking lot where many other people pass my car.

BTW: What is the interval ECO-mode uses?

eco mode comes on once battery voltage drops to a preset level so is very variable anything from 1 minute to 30 minutes !

Can you not just turn engine off then turn ignition to accessory position this brings radio back on but may also bring blower on but would then turn radio off when you turn off and remove key.

I was sure the newer cars turned radio off once locked.

Thx. I will test it later today.
It is not a new car. It is the 2009 model.
