My 7 year old Fiat 500, and 2015 Honda Fit, does the same thing. You don’t need a key, to play the radio. A after market sound system, not going to have that feature.
Wow, this tread is very old.

|Pete000||Reviving an old thread. Aftermarket radios wont wok like this, at least my Kenwood DNX won't. Annoying not to have an accessory position !|

if the radio is off when you shut off the key, next time you turn the key on, radio will be off.
if the radio is on when you shut off the key, next time you turn on the key, the radio will be on.
on my 2008 and 2009, the radio played when you hit the on button even without the key in the ignition. haven't tried it on my latest 2008 with an aftermarket radio...

i tried what smart fortimo suggested to make the radio go off when the car is turned off and make the radio come on when car started.
he said radio off then car off and take key out.....has no affect on my radio as it can still be turned on at anytime

|YellowSmartofBoston||You can do that in any smart. When I went to see them in person for the first time at the dealer. I touched the radio knob on one in the show room floor and the radio came on. I brought it to the attention of the manager, who didn't know that was possible.|

The only reason to use the key is to set the radio for when you start your car next. Radio off first, car off and key out second: the radio will stay off next time. Radio on when you shut down, radio on when you start next time.

I just came in from unloading the car after the PNW Prosser weekend. The key was out and I was grabbing an FRS radio off the lower lip of the dash area. I was slightly freaked that the radio came on, by what I thought was me opening the glovebox.
So in and out went the key in combo with on and off with the power button. All is well, good to hear from others that this is "normal". BTW, I have radio 10.
