Hey-There's many times I pull into the garage and want to finish listening to a song on the radio. In my convertible (with keyless start), it retains power to the radio and some other features for a short time after putting the car in park and turning off the ignition. Opening the door shuts everything off. In the Elantra (also with keyless start feature), doing the same only leaves power to the windows for a short time. The radio turns off when in park and you turn off the ignition. However, if you leave the car in drive or reverse and turn it off, the radio will continue to play. It automatically goes to accessory mode, letting the music play. You do have to remember to cycle thru "on" and then off when done. It's a handy thing and there's no interruption in the music.

Are you suggesting that you would like to apply this feature to your Elantra? This sounds like something that could be taken care of with a relay, but I'm not the electrical guru who could work the details out for you. Maybe someone has some ideas here?

Hey-Leaving the car in drive when shutting it off lets the radio stay on and that works fine for me.

You could also put it in park, turn off, then hit the start button again without pressing the brake to get to accessory.
Just an extra push of the button, and no worry of forgetting to put it in park afterward. Same 2 presses of the start button to cycle back to off.

Hey-I just don't like waiting for the music to come back on.

How about if you're a stick and non-push button but a key instead?

Hey-This is probably only useful with non-key Elantras. If you turn off the car with the key to accessory, it's the same thing. The radio should stay on.
