916 spider has developed a problem in that the radio turns itself on all by itself when you are driving and car and even when the car is parked with nobody in it

Is this a common problem and what is the cure ?

This sounds very similar to a common problem with the Blaupunkt radios fitted to 156s. The solution on the 156 is to keep a CD inserted in the drive at all times*. My son's 156 has a CD in it that came free with a newspaper - they can be found in charity shops. It's been in there years and has completely solved the problem.

May be worth a go ( or a cassette if you don't have a CD player ).

* I do recall reading in the 156 forum that this fix didn't work for one person.
