2008 model 451 with radio 9. noticed others with this problem, anyone come up with a cause and solution? only does it when radio is and engine is off. doesn't seem to do it when radio is on or even if radio is off when car is running. did get a used radio from ebay, but it is DEAD, non functional. have read that this radio is poor quality, made in Portugal. noticed on ebay a new radio available made in Germany, spendy, 175 bucks, has anyone tried one of these? also crutchfield makes an aftermarket, pretty cheap, with adapting wiring harness, anyone have good luck with these, and any trouble with wiring things together? A friend also suggested just running fuse 15 through a switch on the dash so easy to on/off. I have been taking it out when car sits to save the battery. any thoughts appreciated, thanks

451 OEM audio was suspect when new, 11 years later it's time for an UPGRADE!

If you are going to make the investment (time & money), move on to an aftermarket head unit and you will be able to upgrade to hands free!
