Radio Won't go off when I open door

Alright I've had this problem since I got the truck. When I get out of the truck and open the driver door it won't turn off the head unit. If i open the passenger door it shuts off. It has Kenwood speakers and tweeters in the doors and Kenwood speakers in the rear. I've never had a newer Chevrolet with this feature so I don't know what controls the functions. Thanks!

Re: Radio Won't go off when I open door

Argh I tried searching but I came up with nothing. Hmm I guess if I'm gonna take stuff apart I'll go ahead and throw an amp wiring kit in and some subs...

Re: Radio Won't go off when I open door

my truck did the same thing when i bought it that's why i got it for such a good deal but i had to open both front doors and they told me to wiggle the ignition if u didn't the radio would come back on sometimes. I did that for about a month then i took the cd player out and wired some speakers up and put it back in and it just turns off now when i open the door.

Re: Radio Won't go off when I open door

Your answer is quite simple... do one small test for me...

Turn on your parking lamps (On the headlamp control switch turn it one time to the right (Interior night time lighting should come on) )

With your drivers side door OPEN do you hear a chime beeping?

If not... then the little plunger switch that checks if the door is open/closed is either out of the socket, or unplugged or wires got cut...


This is the switch that toggles the RAP and the radio, if this switch is stuck or shorted out, it will give the BCM a false reading of always closed.



I personally installed switches by every door to help override this. this allows me to work with the key in the ign or lamps on, and the door open, aka listen to my radio while cleaning the doors and such..


How the switch works is..

Voltage goes into the switch and stopes when the door is closed and does not return.

when the door is open it allows the current to flow back to the BCM.

my switch is just a simple toggle switch that I installed AFTER This switch that I can cut off that flow again if needed.

Re: Radio Won't go off when I open door

WwRGSwW thanks for the help man, you were right it was the plunger's wires. Somehow they got cut? Weirdest thing. My airbag light went off when I rewired all of that too. Thanks a bunch bro!
