    I'm trying to figure out why my new Fiat Doblo's radio doesn't turn on and off with the ignition. It seems there's only a permanent live provided to the radio, no ignition live - anyone with a Doblo confirm this?

    Good morning. A bit of a jobbing day for me.
    I'm off to do some domestic remedial work following an EICR plus some additional sockets... can't start till 11 though. Then I have some lights to repair in an office block I look after, fittings and appliances to disconnect for a couple that are moving house, visit a kitchen refurb to view progress, stock up for the rest of the week at the wholsalers, get some paperwork done, and if it can be arranged, some data networking work for a local printing firm out of hours.

    Not familiar with the Doblo but the fiat 500 radio has a software option to stay on after the ignition is turned off and doors locked . (his stopped on 20 mins)
    this option is accessed by the screen controls .

    Working 1/2 day meeting mentor at job after getting myself lost in my own city! I've only been here 49 years! Then afternoon at college having my NVQ appraised in front of the City and guilds audit blokey, so basically I'm doing the college a favour but I benefit. Quid pro quo?
    Good luck with those auto electrics @hightower@hightower - put wires in a car shell and they become a complete mystery!

    Yeah, this doesn't have that option unfortunately. Ignoring the block of 8 wires on the left (speaker wires), the right block has:

    Blue (Seems to go live with ignition) - wired in to a port marked +15
    Black (Ground) - wired in the port marked GND
    Yellow/Blue - controls the dim level on illumination, correctly wired
    Red/Green (Permanent live) - wired in to a port marked BU

    I'm thinking the Blue and the Red/Green need swapping - there's an ignition live after all but it's not doing anything to help matters the way it's currently wired. I've managed to get the Red/Green out the ISO block, but the blue is proving trickier. What's peoples thoughts? Swap them and see what happens?

    Could be a goer - 7 on block A currently hosts the blue (ignition live), 4 hosts the red/green (perm live)

    Fiat wiring and radios you usually haveto swap the red and yellow in the iso conector adaptor supplied ( the original colours of the fiat differ) with the after market radio if its an aftermarket radio you have hit the nail on the head. (it wont damage anything to try it either as long as you have the radio code) usually all that happens is you lose presets or radio dont turn off depending on model

    It's not aftermarket, but my suspicions are it used to have an aftermarket and it was swapped for that, the original was put back in to sell the vehicle but the connections weren't swapped back. I'm not sure if I have the radio code, but I've already disconnected the connector block from the radio so too late to worry about that now. I'll give it a go anyway.

    And bingo, managed to release the blue from the block, swapped them around and now the radio works in line with the ignition! Buzzing because that was quickly getting me irritated (getting half way out the van before realising the radio was still on)

    Ok so radio turns off with the ignition now, but it's still a manual switch on. Also when I switch on now it goes to radio even if I last had it on cd. I'm guessing it's losing its memory. Any ideas what to try next?

    It should fit, but it's also possible that between the pipework and cabinet cut outs I'll be sorting out a bit more than the electrics. Gives me something to whinge about :)

    I'm on an induction for the company I've been working for through agency - don't tell the agency though! Good though because I'm taken on as self employed subby electricians mate and he's ok me doing my privates at the same time. (That sounded ruder than it needed to!)

    I did the same job yesterday trying to rigidly keep the accessory to accessory safe zone slaloming between dot and dabs.
    I now have a dedicated piece of trunking lid and a wire coat hanger - nothing else would have done it.
    My second job was locating a light switch from the right side hinge side to the left side!
    When you've finished it seems like you haven't just spent 2 1/2 hours working hard!
    3 days catching up with house cleaning! (Whilst deeply pondering on my Jesus on the cross of Calvary!)

    Well I'm already bored and I've still got until Tuesday, I think it's one of the perils of running a business, you pray for some rest time but when it comes your brain can't switch off (mine at least) I keep looking at my laptop bag and office keys thinking should I or shouldn't I lol.

    Take some chill juice and relax mate, it will do you good honest, when I was working I found it hard to switch off, Carp fishing cured that though, cost me lots so I had to continue working, now I can't fish, dodgy hips etc.
