Am I missing something here? Stereo won't stay on when car is off?

Like the title says...

you pull up to a parking spot and want to hang out in the car for a few minutes.... but the radio/stereo shuts off instantly after turning the power off? Or is there a setting I can fool around with to make it not shut off when you shut the car off?

Thanks,

In my 2009 Genesis the radio used to stay on for at least 10 minutes or so. In my 2014 Equus the radio shuts off immediately when you shut the car off.

One other item they over looked is the ability to open or close the sunroof with the ignition off.

There are many instances where you forget to close the sunroof after you shut the car off...
..

just wondering if there is a setting somewhere that I'm missing to keep the radio playing after shutting the car down.

Push the Start/Stop a second time without depressing the brake pedal.

This is the same as my 2014 Genesis R-Spec. When you shut the engine off. The audio system goes off instantly. Same when I'm on a Bluetooth phone call. It dumps me. Not well designed.

My '14 Santa Fe Sport radio stays on for 5 minutes after engine shutdown, unless the door is opened. No way to change it.

I like the old-fashioned way, the audio stopping when I turn the key off. The Coupe does it that way. If I want audio or bluetooth to stay on, I simply stop the key in the ACC position. On a full turn off, the bluetooth switches over in the phone after a second or so. Classic and simple. It's very annoying for the audio to stay on, to have to do yet another thing to turn it off. If mine did that, I'd be looking for fuses to pull ;)

I think it does this because the 600 watt stereo draws so much power. Many cars only have a 20 watt ( or similar ) stereo, that
draws little power.

My 2011 Coupe is the only push button start car I own and it does exactly what you say, all the power to everything but the door locks/trunk lock cuts off when the push button kills the engine. Can't listen to the radio, can't charge my phone (no power on either 12V receptacle.

My wife's 2010 Fusion and my 2005 Chevy are key operated and both keep the radio on/running for several minutes unless you open the door(s).

It's okay. It rides a little rougher than some cars, it doesn't maintain 12v accessory power to some things like other cars, but that's all okay.

It doesn't accelerate, handle or stop like most other cars - it's much, much better. And that make is all okay. You can't see my big grin.

When I go out the door to go shopping, or to go to a gun show, etc. my wife says, "Honey, you can take my car." I'll never understand why she thinks I'd rather drive a Fusion, than 3.8 Track Genesis Coupe. It just doesn't compute.

I'm having same issues. We have a drive in movie theater where we turn the car/lights off but keep radio going. It sends warning within a few mins about draining the battery. My 2010 elantra could do one movie running just the radio. I'd start the engine in between movie just to charge the batteries and never had issues. Now I dont know what to do.
