2006 Chevrolet Impala


PostPosted: Sun Dec 08, 2013 8:47 am    Post subject:  Radio doesnt cutoff Reply with quote

I have a 2006 Impala SS with the V-8. Recently, the radio does not cutoff after the key is removed from the ignition and the door opened. I am pretty much useless on auto repairs. Can anyone help with potential causes of the problem? Trying to prevent killing the battery or associated issues for my car.

Thanks!

Does it turn off on its own after 10 minutes?

If so, it's probably the switch that lets the car know the door is open.

It does go off after a period of time. I assume the switch can be found by feeling around the door frame and maybe repaired by lubricating?

Thanks for your response!

This happened to me twice a few months ago on my 05. It hasn't happened since, & there were no special conditions that might have caused it to happen. I know it will come back again, but until it does I'm not going to worry about it. GARY

Mine is doing it every time. Not sure what the rhyme or reason is but I would love to resolve the issue before cold weather sets in and I have no battery life.

You probably have a BCM issue and I'm guessing the OP had a bad door switch. Sure fire way to tell is if the interior lighting turns on when you open the door. If they don't, it's the switch. If they do, it's something else.

The interior lighting operates correctly. Do you mind explaining what a 'BCM' issue is?

Sorry to be a pain but I am challenged in this area...

You have a 2006, so its much less likely a BCM issue. The BCM is the body control module, it controls most of the electronics in the vehicle. They are notoriously shoddy in the 2000-2005 models.

Any idea of what I can expect to pay someone to repair/replace the part?

Sorry, I can't speak to cost directly because I've never had to do it, but even if the lighting works normally, it can still be the door open switch. A guess on cost would be to count on an hour of labor plus parts. Maybe $150? A dealer would be more expensive than an independent mechanic, most likely.

The radio button works but if I press the button after opening the door, the radio will resume playing
