Default How to have radio turn off...

Well, I am trying to find a way to have my radio turn off when I open the door. Right now, it will only turn off when I push the on/off button. Sorry if this has been answered a million times, but I looked around and did a search and couldn't find out anything. Thanks...

Dan

I wouldn't say that was normal. My radio turns off if the key's out and I open the door. I'd get the dealer to look at that.

I just thought of something. It will turn off when the passenger door is opened, but not when the drivers door is opened. Maybe I will look at the latch and everything when I get out there...

Try pressing that little knob in the doorframe. On my Ext cab, it's just in front of the swing door on the bottom.

Well, I tried playing with the little white knob, and it didn't help. I know for a fact that the passenger door will turn off the radio, but the drivers side won't. I guess back to the dealership...

It has to be the switch in the door. Should be a simple fix for the dealership.

Does your dome light come on when you open the door? If the light comes on then it's not the switch.

Yes, the light comes on. And after messing around with anything door related, it still doesn't do it. Another thing that I thought of, the last time I got out of my truck, the wipers still worked when the truck was turned off and the key was out. Seems like nothing is turning off when I get out of the drivers door...
