Peugeot Boxer Radio Cut-off

Post by LINKSMAN on Thu Nov 17, 2016 10:27 am

I have a Warwick Duo, June 2015 Peugeot Boxer, with the latest radio installed by Peugeot. There is no CD slot, so I've had to learn all about Mp3 players and use the difficult-to-get-at  audio socket within the fall-flap locker. The biggest problem is the well-known 20-minute cut-off when stationary. The menu suggests that this time period is changeable, but I can't manage to extend it.

We have Sussex Duo (2013). We quickly abandoned using the cab radio when living in the 'van and now use a battery digital portable radio at the 'lounge' end of the van.  With cab curtains closed and the front two seats used as a 'shed' it is most inconvenient to operate the cab radio when living in the van. Not the least is that the cab radio is the farthest point away from the lounge area.

Friends of ours got so fed up with the switch off that they bought very good little DAB radio, fairly cheaply. Shouldn't have to do this, but it was the easy way out and it works for them.

I think it was this one, if it's of interest. http://tiny.cc/y0wzgy

We bought a separate DAB radio for the same reasons as above - I don't think you can extend the 20 minute cut off.

I also changed the centre glovebox to an open design that has drinks holders AND allows easier access to the difficult-to-get-at audio socket(s) the OP talked about.

Question for stewpotch....how did you change the centre glove box please. Did you buy a kit of some kind? I would like to do the same for my Kingham on a Peugeot rather than carrying one hot cup of coffee whilst the driver uses the only 'holder'.

Has anyone changed their radio to the camper mode and what do they think. I just get frustrated when I am driving and it keeps going off. Even the CD only lasts 20min.

I tried and got 0 or 60 once which I presumed meant minutes but it never worked and I've read elsewhere that it can't be done. You can however use the override switch above the fridge but must remember to switch off again when you leave the van. Don't ask how that works as the radio is wired to leisure battery on ours and all other 12v circuits are isolated when engine running.

Does that mean I can turn the switch on whilst driving to listen to the radio and it won't drain my battery. Always been worried about that.

Well yes, as the leisure battery is charged as you drive.

Surely the radio should stay on all the time the ignition is on? The idea is that if "white van man" left the radio on when
he got out the battery would drain. There is no way WVM would tolerate the thing going off in the middle of 'You Ain't seen Nothing Yet'
I replaced and rewired the radio in our last van, 2003 Symbol, 'cos I couldn't get it to stay on longer than 20 minutes WITH THE IGNITION OFF.
New one has 3 hour setting, 2013 Symbol/Dorset.

Same here, first thing I did to the van was put a Sony headunit in and change the live feed to a permanent live. Fairly easy to do, but I changed the entire clipboard unit to a double din sized unit while I was at it.

Just a query, is it the newer vans radio that go off after 20 minutes when driving?, just wondering, if that is so, seems a backward step.

I thought that  only applied when stationary. my radio keeps going when driving, I turn off just before switching off the ignition, that way it isn`t on when I restart the van.

For when stationary I have bought the Roberts play 10, battery and mains radio. very pleased with it.

Seems to be Peugeot vans as far as AS is concerned. Can use override switch when stationary but have to remember to turn that of otherwise radio is still live. All rather silly.

There's another point there Paul. If AS fit an override switch it presumably puts 12v onto the radio and then it stays on. So therefore the radio should stay on whenever the ignition is on. 
And to Noggin, I fitted a Sony head with a removable faceplate. Much better but still couldn't hear it above the engine! So if anyone wants an original radio from a 2003 Peugeot Boxer it's in my shed.

On our year of Nuevo, the radio is wired to leisure battery so ignition doesn't come into it.

hugegrins Yes that is an issue, at slow speeds it's ok but I must admit on the motorway it can be hard.

I personally think it's the stock speakers than the head unit though. The speakers are too tinny and harsh. I've been wondering whether to put some nicer speakers in mine. Might go on Santa's list actually thinking about it.

I normally drive now with the volume turned down with TA enabled so we hear traffic alerts. As we listen mainly to Radio 4 speech is even more difficult to hear on the move.

I'm a bit surprised that a Sony headunit hasn't got it built in, but what you need is a headunit that supports GALA - though not every manufacturer calls it that. Essentially it increases the volume as road speed increases, and in my experience it works very well.

The reason I won't buy a Sony removable-front headunit for a camper van is the stupid "plink plonk plink plonk plink plonk" when you turn off the ignition without first removing the faceplate. Unless they have changed the feature recently it cannot be turned off, and it's really annoying when you want a nice quiet park-up at a campsite late at night!

Yep mine does that. I don't see the point in not being able to turn it off either.

I think there s some confusion here if a radio is turning off after 20 minutes when driving something is wrong. Ours plays perfectly well whilst the ignition is on but turns off after 20 minutes when the ignition is off. This is camper mode 20 minutes it cannot be increased.
There is no override switch fitted to the current models.
An autoelectricion told me the vehicles can bus controls the radio so a reword would be required to resolve this but he couldn't garantee to be able to resolve it as it may cause other problems.
