Punto owners with aftermarket stereos!!

Hey all, I have recently adopted a fiat punto, and have just put a cool stereo in it.

Anyhoo, its on all the time, when I turn off the ignition the stereo stays on.

now, I know there are two lives and an illumination live going into the stereo, but is this normal for the punto to send the permanent live to the stereo when the car is off?

I am using the standard iso connection straight into the stereo so I dont see what is doing it. Any advice peeps?

My nieces does the same, you need to actually turn the stereo off. Weird huh

yeah the standard radio does the same- bit of a bummer to turn it off every time but thats what my bro has to do :lol:

My OH's punto does this too, usually stays on for approx. 20 and mins then goes off.
Italians are weird! why put in a relay that keeps it on for 20 mins?

hmmmm, is this true? a 20 min relay?

That is a bit stupid. Its quite annoying I must admit.

Also, does anyone know why my exhaust is rattling lol?

Keep answering the stereo question tho lol.

This site is better than the bloomin car forums.!

Yep it's a 20 min relay. then if you press the power on without keys you get another 20 mins, kinda like topping up.

Lol, yes.

This one is a 52 plate, it has had a new battery, rocker cover gasget, exhaust issues, manifold gasket, new stereo and tracking (obviously not a fault)

The rear wiper cost me £24!!! Wahh!!

And it vibrates like mad at 4000rpm!! But when you go over it, its ok!! :s Weird.

Im used to the latest new mini, and the punto is doing well must admit!!

For future ref: if your rear wiper is a "manufacturer" type part then you can usually slide the rubber blade out and slide a new rubber blade into place. thats what i do to my OH's punto.

Wierd, my 95 punto used to do the exact same thing. I thought it was my brothers dodgy wiring, apparently it wasn't.

Odd.

i have a 2000 punto - just with normal radio in it. Need to turn it off but does go off after 15-20mins.

Anyone know what size speakers i need in the door?

Thanks
