    Try leaving it on, taking out key and lock car/van. See if radio goes off a minute or two later

    Switch on ignition, switch off stereo, press and hold down buttons 1 & 3, switch stereo back on. Before you hear a confirmation beep the stereo display will show what the current state of the ignition logic is. It will be either 'IGNI ON' or 'IGNI OFF'. When the confirmation beep is heard the state is changed.
