Guide :Maintenance & Repair : 2000 Jaguar S-TYPE 3.0

Radio draining the battery

The radio keeps coming back on after shutting the radio off then the car off. After a few minutes I hear the radio is on in the garage shut it off and again the SOB comes back on. Had it in the shop when picked up radio does not work.  The fuse Is good but replaced with new anyway, still no radio.  Any trouble shooting ideas?We have 3 Jaguars, a 2000 S-type 3.0 V6,  a 2001 XJ8 and a 1998 XK8, all three are maintenance and repair nightmares.  When they run they are a dream to drive, we hardly every have all three running at once.  It's a good thing we have a few more reliable cars to drive as the Jags are the worst for reliability that we own out of six cars and two motor homes.  They are the worst cars we have ever owned.  When Ford owned Jaguar I think they became much less reliable.  The plastic motor parts have failed on all three Jaguars as they do on the Ford cars as well.  BMW owners are having the same problems according to their own mechanics.  Back to our S-type radio problem does anyone have a solution.?Tars Campbell
