The radio comes back on when my 156 is unattended. New-ish battery drained over the weekend. Any tips to stop this happening? :depressed:
Hmm...thanx 4 ur thoughts on this.Dodgy radio? The 156 has radio that is only powered off from on/off button if it still has the original h/u so it has to be a dodgy switch
That's a great tip there, Rusty One. I'll trawl the sites for a 'how to' remove radio. Those four tiny holes and an allen key?Or you can rewire the power feed from Permanent Live to Switched Live.
I did it after I upgraded the unit to a Lidl bluetooth jobbie. Must be a How-To on it either here or on Alfa156.net because I looked it up.
Its just a matter of swapping pins on the rear connector. The radio then only works with the ignition turned on.
Got it. £1.75 the pair on eBay! (I've not seen a wire coat hanger for years...maybe different in Wales ;-)):biglaugh:Put a modified wire coat hanger in the holes then pull on the radio not the hangers. A proper tool is available for this for around £5 but it's much less fun.
