Can I Kill the Radio???



okay i hate the radio, i fucking hate it so much. i want to kill it completely and never have it ever again. can i?

to simplify the issue is there a way not to have the radio turn on automatically just coz i took a CD out, or unplugged my iPod (even tho the whole system is off already)??

i dont want radio, it really does bug me, it's annoying me that im making a thread about it. i want it dead forever

Disconnect and remove the battery. Your anger will provide the spark for ignition.

If you won't disconnect the battery, I suppose the next best thing is to disconnect the radio antenna, wherever it is. But then you'll here static instead of the radio. If you like static better than the radio then you're better off.

i was thinking about that. that might be an option, but now im thinking to tune to a frequency that doesnt have a station associated, something just silent. it's still annoying

If power is off on your audio system, why would the radio come on?

iDrive isnt off, but radio is off. i unplug my iPhone or iPod and boom it comes back very loud again.

maybe it's a user thing... well probably, but the way i turn it off is by pressing the volume knob in so it's "mute"

My Nissan SUV does this too. Even when the radio is off when I put the CD in, it will still switch the radio on when the CD is ejected. If I turn it off first, I cannot eject the CD.

trust me bro, that's exactly what i think every day!!! hence there's a thread about this.

there's more fucked up version of my story. let's say i turn the car off completely, key out, idrive dead nothing in the car is turned on. let's say i unplug my iPod and plug it back again then turn on the car IT WILL GO DIRECTLY TO RADIO. that really annoys me

Well, I seem to be able to unexplainably kill all audio about 50% the time. The radio definitely doesn't come on in that case

Want to trade cars?
