im posting this here because i got no response in electrical forum.

is there anything i can do to stop my accessories (ie. radio) from staying on after i turn my truck off? it turns off when i open the door but i would like it to turn off when i turn the key to off.

dont get me wrong i like this feature, but i just got a viper 790vx alarm and it has remote start, w/ timed starting throughout the day, so if it starts, it turns the radio on, and after the truck turns off the radio will stay on for about 20 minutes and i rather it not stay on.

ok i found out better way to do it. if anyone's wondering, just pull the R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) fuse out under the hood.

timed starting throughout the day, WTF is that? and if its turning on, its charging the battery, so i'm pretty sure its not hurting anything (to have the radio on).

the viper responder alarm owns you and it can do that....

its for like extremely cold temperatures to keep your engine a little warm so you dont have to worry about it not starting. its not nearly that cold here and i wont set it to do that but i just dont want my radio to stay on after the trucks off.

Pulling the RAP fuse out is the ghetto way of doing it. Buy yourself a relay and harness and follow.........

#30 - to the negative door trigger from the brain
#85 - blue wire from the brain
#86 - 12 Volts (FUSE IT!)
#87a - door trigger in the truck

This is off the top of my head....im pretty sure this is how it goes, I havnt done one in awhile.

Its a feature, so if you do turn the car off, you dont have to turn the acc's on and waste more battery to listen to the radio.

Ya, it can be an inconvenience but hey......you're dealing with GM here.......:p
