Radio shuts off when key is turned off

Radio shuts off when key is turned off

Postby pvoltmer [OP] » Mar 12 2012, 5:35am

So, I just now realized that my radio shuts off whenever I shut my key off, but my windows and everything still work correctly (RAP). I replaced my black handles with the chrome ones. Is there maybe something that I hooked up wrong in the door panel (for the window buttons and everything) that changed that? Or is there something that I did otherwise that made it not work?

It is a 2009 silverado 1500 LT

Thanks in advance!

I personally wouldn't mind so much if mine did that, but on the other hand, it's not working as GM intended. So I see where you're coming from.

I usually open my door before I cut my engine off anyway, I'm not a huge fan of the radio staying on after I turn off the key.

I don't think replacing the door handles would have anything to do with it, but then again, now that I think of it, the radio does cut off when the door handle is pulled. But seeing as your windows still continue to work, that doesn't make sense that replacing the door handles would be the cause of this.

Do a test real quick, and turn on the truck, shut it back off again, check the window power, and then pop the door and close it again, check the windows again. If they still move, you might have to recheck your wiring.

The chrome door handles do sound nice though, I'd love to see some pictures of them.

I plan on trying this when I get home..

They handles are nice, were easy to put in. But I wasn't paying attention and there are more than the required slots for the wire harnesses, and they can fit in multiple ones. :?

There are the handles! I put a leveling kit on as well, but that was after the picture was taken.

Ended up taking the window button panel off..unplugged everything and plugged it back in. It works now... :?: Guess I didn't have something completely pushed in ...it works that's all that matters!
