    Ran into this problem just recently, by accident in my 2013 Ford Raptor.

    When my keys are not in the ignition, the radio will turn on when I press the radio power button. This happens even when the car has been off overnight.

    Almost seems like the 12V accessory wire might always be on?

    All Fords with Sync2/My Ford Touch operate this way. Got a 15 SHO that does the same.

    It'll still timeout and turn off, but it takes like 30 minutes instead of the 10 or so you get if you just turn the key off and sit in the truck listening to the radio.

    What ^^ he said.

    My last 4 fords have all done this. Great for gas stations, where I need to fill up a 36 gallon tank....my passengers can still listen to music during that time, without having to mess with the ignition.

    Every Ford I've owned since 13 has had this, I love it!!! And it's all the accessories too so anything you've got plugged into the usbs will charge or turn on as well!

    Think default is 15 min
    FORScan allows for setting up to 60 min

    Love it!!
    Power inverter doesn’t work without full accessory power.

    Same here - just let it run out. It'll shut off
