Radio keeps switching itself on; help

i own a 2004 idea multijet deisel with the blaupunkt radio /CD . when travelling the radio will switch itself on at any time. this also happens when parked up and ignition switched off, ie overnight in the drive etc although it seems to only switch on for about 20mins. anyone else with the same problem and if so do you have a fix please? thanks

Take a look at item 110310476831 on Ebay

Confusingly it's for a Panda Idea! Maybe email them?

Thumbs up Re: Radio keeps switching itself on; help

Thank you rentabull & tigershoot,

I have had this problem for some time with my Idea Eleganza 2004 reg
it is most annoying, once we were in a holiday cottage in the Lake District and it started playing while we were in bed, just as well the car was parked just outside the bedroom window.
I will now use the CD in future.

Had this problem on our 2004 Panda and the garage changed the radio/CD unit under warranty. It was a known problem with the Blaupunkt unit....not that this helps you much now.
