Live feed to radio

Hello all you experts ~ new member/owner here needing a bit of advice. Where can I take a live feed easily from the ignition switch that will turn off the radio with the ignition. On our '96 Cinqy S the white 6 way connector block under the dash has a permanent live connection which is o.k. for the radio memory. The other live wire from the radio which should go to ignition is connected to that as well, so you have to remember to turn off the radio manually when leaving the car.

Thanks for your reply. I'd already thought of something like that. Just wondered if there was a 'proper' connection somewhere.

nope, no proper connector unfortunately, you may be able to take a feed from the cigarette lighter socket as they switch off with the ignition (i think it does, mine was replaced with a starter buttton)

Welcome to the forum!

It doesn't really bother me. I've always had a Cinq so I'm now used to it

if i had a kenwood mask headunit then i'd wire it up so its on until you turn the ignition off and then open a door.. but i don't have one - so its on all the time - that way i'm never going to forget to take the panel off :)


Cinq Sporting - and yes, its broom yellow!

on the newer(not mine[V]) mask units you can set a delay on how long it waits before flipping but mine just flips when you turn of the ignition,which is nice;)
