Help 147 Radio Turning Randomly


Turning "on" Randomly that'll be then...

Any one heard of a problem where there Radio / CD starts playing by itself when the car is not running and parked up.

I've a 04 147 JTD-MJet, with CD Player, Changer and Bose Kit.

I got into the car the other day to find the CDC Playing... Strange I thought, Locked it up again at work, and I knew which of the CD's in the Multichanger was last playing, when i got in the Radio wasn't on but the CD was a couple up from where I last left it.

The same thing happended this morning, So i've talken the Radio/CD head unit out, Ignition off, didn't touch and buttons, gave it a small tap on the top of the unit, and it turned itself on...

I think it's only staying on for the 20Mins Ignition time, each time it happens..

Any one else had this ?

Re: 147 Radio Turning Randomly

I to would like to know if there's a fix for this, I've had it looked at by the dealer who can find nothing wrong. Weirdness indeed.

I also have the tailgate light open warning light come on after it's been parked up over night, once i start to move it goes off and will stay off no matter how many times i stop and start through out the day but next morning it will be on again at start up, is this just a sensor adjustment and where is it located.

Thanks in advance

Hi ive just started having this problem now. Has anyone found a fix for this?
Its a little annoying as i have to keep going outside every 20 minutes to turn it off. Can't take the battery out as im in a wheelchair.
