Disable radio going off after 10 minutes with engine off

I’ve scoured the manual and can’t find a way to disable the eco mode that turns the radio off after about 5 minutes if the engine isn’t running. I had the same issue with my previous DS3. Any ideas?

Hello @ianfreeman

I can’t see any way to do that. The system is there to protect the 12v battery. I don’t know what the DS battery is like but I once owned a Mazda where using the media system for more that a few minutes after turning the engine off meant a call to the AA was required!

Since owning that Mazda I’ve never tried to override these systems as a flat 12v is a major pain.

Sorry I can’t be of help to you.

That fine, thanks very much for responding. I thought that might be the case. I’ll just have to grin and bear it!
