Radio will not turn off??????????

Posted by paddle (My Page) on

I drive a 96' Express van with a radio problem. Once in a while when I turn the engine and the radio turns off/attenna goes down automaticlly, it will go back up and radio will go on?????? (without the key, and i checked the ignition switch position) If i remember to manually turn radio off before the engine is turned off, will avoid this problem. Where should i start to find out why this is happening? What if i change the power antenna to a regular one?

The power antenna should have nothing to due with your problem. I would have to think that there is a problem with your ignition switch. Can you supply any more info on your vehicle? 1500 series etc.

Try and turn on the wipers when the key is off and the radio is on.
