Listening to the radio when parked
My Alfa radio was replaced by the previous owner with a Kenwood ICE system. Everything seems to work OK, the radio, CD/DVD, GPS, Bluetooth, all present and correct. The controls on the steering wheel work fine too.
Maybe it's because I'm a bit thick, but I can't seem to find how to turn the radio on without having the ignition on too, which doesn't seem right. If I insert the key, the whole dashboard lights up, and the glowplug starts to pre-heat. I don't want this if I'm just sitting parked up waiting for somebody. Without the key, nothing is available.
Is there a trick to this, or has my ICE sytem been wired in wrongly?
