Listen to FM with Engine Off

Recently acquired a 2018 K1600GTL and cannot figure out how to listen to the FM radio with the engine off. The system seems to automatically power itself down after a minute or two in not pushing buttons and changing settings. I am thinking there might be an "Accessory Mode" that would allow you to power the radio and not all the lights and other loads that would quickly drain the battery. Dealer did not have an answer.

Re: Listen to FM with Engine Off

On my 2012 RT if you push the power button right after the bike powers off the the audio system will play for 15 minutes or so. I know mine is an older bike and different model but often the design and basic operation routine is shared.
