    Should that read "Can't use the stereo without keys"?

    I've got a Pioneer DEH7000UB and I can't use mine without the ignition being switched on either. I'd also like to know if there is a way around this.

    I have the same problem. Switch on & off is a function of the CanBus so the only alternative is to make both live connections permanent & switch the radio on & off via the radio itself. Someone may do a CanBus power adaptor but it's likely to be very expensive.

    Which switched source do people use then rather than taking a second permanent live from the cig lighter?
