    Can you repeat it, or it just happened once?
    If you can repeat, just post the steps, if one time case, just ignore it.

    Also, please put the thread title little meaningful, rather than "Strange Problem". I have modified it, let me know if you want to change.

    I think it is the other way round. Meaning music turns on automatically when engine is cranked.

    If it is indeed what is being said, then congrats, you just got yourself a free push button start :D

    Hyundai will come with this feature if they com to know about this. It is more advanced than push start button :evilsmile

    I think when HU is on all electric accessories can work but car doesn't start. In my opinion report it to TASS. Any electrical malfunction shouldn't be neglected.

    Active model, so I guess the HU is not factory fit. While installing HU, did they cut or join any of the wires going to the ignition key, by mistake ?
    Still I can't imagine this happening!

    It happens that the HU starts automatically a few times as the ECU do a complete check in regular interval (OEM). If it happens the other way, congrats. The new way to control the car is invented. Please check any wiring is done wrong if you are using an non-OEM HU.

    today when i switched on tuner in my music system, my car's ignition got on automatically. even if remove the keys the cars ignition stays on. as soon as i put it to any other band like cd, usb or aux mode everything is back to normal.
    im really bother as what can it be. a faulty electrical system, a faulty music system or a faulty ECU. my car runs absolutely normally

    plz help guyz.

    1. Is this after market HU?
    2. Who did the installation?
    3. Was any wire cutting involved?
