The radio on my Fiat Idea has started switching itself on when either the ignition is on or not, thus running down the battery. I changed the battery, not knowing about the radio, and tho it appears to work OK, its started switching on when turned off. Any ideas. sorry for the pun.

I have just bought an idea, i don't have it yet but i have been reading up about it and i understand the radio problem is common, apparently there is a micro switch that controls the cd which sometimes mistakenly thinks a cd has been inserted thus waking up the radio and flattening the battery. apparently the quick fix is to leave a cd in the slot.
Hope this helps.

If the radio is running the battery flat, you must not use that Fiat very much (or unit comes on at Full Volume). Normally will take a number of DAYS or weeks to drain fully.

maybe something wrong with the cabling connection of B+ of your radio to the source. Better you check and follow the diagram ( it usually found on the top of the radio case.
