Re: while charging radio came on with key off

If the key was just one click to the left from the run position the radio will work.

Re: while charging radio came on with key off

I thought the passenger outlet was switched. I plug into the outlet down by the left foot peg.

You are correct. That outlet is tied to fuse F8 and is not hot unless the key is on , but the radio is also tied to fuse F8 so the charger triggered the radio to come on as if the key had been turned on.

Re: while charging radio came on with key off

My 2001 LT radio is live with the key off. And the passenger plug is too. I have not modified it ??? I charge the battery thru the passenger plug, but it's never triggered the radio.

The key ignition switch has 4 positions what position is it in when you charge it ?.

Re: while charging radio came on with key off

On my 2002 LT the radio is independent of the key.

I.E. The radio can be turned on irrespective of the key/fob position. Which is quite useful when working in the garage.

But - a mistaken brush of the radio pad can lead to a flat battery.

It's off. The first counterclockwise click from normal on running.

That position is what is referred to as the "accessory" position on a car. The radio should come on there. I usually park in the garage or on the trailer with the key 1/4 turn left of that position. The key will not come out but the electrics are fully off there just as if you locked the forks.
