So if the external radio is tied into ACC/IGN wire (is that the starting switch?) then is it possible these two problems are connected? Not sure you can answer but would love to kill two birds with one stone. I am guessing I have a faulty ignition switch? I just want to be fully prepared when I head into the service bay.
About the radio... My above post has a revision. I now remove the radio face plate and store it in the box provided. I found the problem started reappearing.
It turns out that the lock on the entertainment center is hitting the power switch when the door is closed. Other than doing the above posted modification this is the other best solution. In truth I think I never solved it the first time. I only found one of the problems. But now, no radio controls to be hit means no turning the radio on.
Hard to shut off? Is the switch hard to turn or does the engine continue to run after you go to the off position?
About the locks... By chance is this a feature that should have been working all along?
I look forward to the rest of your story.
