Play radio only (no engine running)

OK, so I admit this has to be a dumb question.

How can I turn on just "aux" and play the radio only without starting the engine?

And I also noticed the radio shuts off real quick after I kill the engine. How can I make it stay on longer?

Re: Play radio only (no engine running)

Push the start button without your foot on the brake. This will turn on the acc or aux... Similarly after you turn off the engine the radio turns off when you open the door or after about 30 seconds, again just hit the start button again without foot on the brake and it will go to aux mode

Re: Play radio only (no engine running)

I wanted to do the same thing to burn CDs to the hard drive. Before I figured it out, I was running the car for like an hour just to burn the CD's. LOL

Re: Play radio only (no engine running)

You can set how long you want the power to stay on after you turn off the car. All the information you asked for is in the owners manual.

the settings are located in the EVIC.... which the manual will explain
Believe you have to be in park to access this section of the EVIC.

Re: Play radio only (no engine running)

+1 owners manuals can be helpful for certain things. Give it a quick skim when you get a chance.

Re: Play radio only (no engine running)

I actually read the whole manual (PDF) during the 4 weeks I was waiting for my Jeep to be built. Just didn't remember that particular item.
