    Hi,

    I have noticed that during cold days, when i start my car the radio doesn't start immediate, instead it starts ~10-15 minutes later. I guess it's not supposed to be this way ? Should i bring it out and check the wires?

    What stereo do you have?
    I'm pretty sure this isn't a designed feature or a wiring issue (unless water has got on to cabling and then frozen but you would have more issues than you do).
    I think it will probably be a fault with the stereo unit because that is a long time to work. 30 seconds would be acceptable

    Wouldn't have thought so - doesn't sound right to me !

    Mind you, I have no explanation to offer I'm afraid.

    audi concert(single din?). I feel that something is wrong to, it's pretty strange if the car have some electronic-protection mechanism and it would just protect the stereo, I feel that the car has more important electronic(and more expensive) then the stereo:). I wouln't even understand how this can protect the electronic.

    Well well, i was planing to upgrade to some better stereo anyway, also this doesn't annoy me that much, just curious :)
