    Guys.. i came across this peculiar thing about the Radio of my car, even if the car is completely switched off (note this: even if the keys are not inserted) my radio plays perfectly fine.
    I mistakenly pressed the On/Off button and the radio started. I checked it with CD or Media Player theses two things doesn't start. Only the radio starts even if the car is not On and with the keys not inserted.
    Anyone of you came across such issue please comment. What can be done to resolve this issue?

    Just reset your radio through settings button.
    It happened with me once, after reset everything is normal.

    ::OO I thought this was a feature!!
    My 3 year old son found this for me when he switched on the radio after we all had got out of the car.
    Pressing and holding the on/off button for a couple of seconds switches off the unit, and if left on, I think it will automatically shut down after 20 minutes.

    This is a feature of car. CD does work without key in ignition only Media Player doesn't work. Steering Control works too.
    As mentioned by royj HU automatically switches off after 20 min to prevent battery from draining.

    Ok, I misunderstood the question. I thought the issue is even if you switch- engine off, the radio continues to play. Normally, if you switch-off the engine, radio also stops.
    However, even in case of engine is off, if you press the radio button on, it will work.

    One more thing, the CD also works when the engine is switched off and the radio is switched off.
