Radio will not turn on

0 votes
2013 F-150

Install of remote start seemed successful unit programmed and works to remote start but later i discovered as soon as ignition is turned off the accessories also shut down

If you try to manually turn on radio it displays power saver mode audio off

Vehicle starts power windows work and vehicle has new battery installed

Any ideas what i should look for that would be effecting voltage to accessories causing this shutdown warning

Radio is powered by accessory wire at ignition switch. I would check there.

If you dont want the RAP to shut down, disconnect the door pin connection. By doing this though, if the car is remote started and it times out or you shut it off rmeotely, the accesories will stay active for how ever long RAP is on your truck. normally 5-10 minutes.
