Default Auto radio off & dash off delay?

When I turn the truck off, the dash lights and radio stay on for about another minute. Is there a way to make this immediate? I get out of the truck and lock it and the radio is still a blaring with dash lights on. Note, I could understand if this was outside headlights or even internal dome light but it is not, it's the radio and dash lights only that do this.

if you had the 8.4" radio, either RA3 or RA4, you would change the setting using the radio in the MENU

with the 3" RA1 or 5" RA2 radio, you will need to either read your owners manual or ask someone

The base 2013 Ram radio will be the Media Center RA1; it has a four-line text display, USB input, and iPod integration, with an optional CD player
it does NOT have bluetooth

The RA2 adds a five-inch touch-screen, speed-controlled volume, satellite radio, phone and voice control, EVIC personalization, and GPS receiver; a rearview camera and remote CD player are optional.

The UConnect RA3 (8.4 inch touch-screen) adds UConnect Access, including crash notification, 911 or roadside assistance calls, monthly vehicle health reports, voice texting, WiFi hotspots (pay per use), dead-reckoning with gyro, and optional rear-seat Blu-Ray DVD player; buyers can pay $595 to upgrade it with navigation. But those who want navigation should get the RA4, which costs only $500 more, and also includes HD radio. A optional CD player is in the lower storage bin of the center console.

The Uconnect Media Center RA4 adds HD Radio, SiriusXM Travel Link, and SiriusXM Traffic and a remote USB port in the media console to the RA3 capabilities.

I got whatever comes with Tradesman, so probably the cheapy one. The center console does not have an sd slot like the picture in the manual but has usb and a 3.5mm jack, and two buttons on left and right sides and siruis. It does not have touchscreen or camera. Is there a setting I haven't seen for this issue?

It's in the evic settings controlled from the steering wheel. You can set the delay for power off, lights off and various other options in there.

Came across a similar thread and have since change the power off delay setting from 15 seconds to zero. why they chose those time increments is a mystery. Why would anyone leave their radio on 10 minutes after pulling the key out? ah well.... The dash lights still stay on but they don't stay on nearly as long.

Default Radio off does setting not get saved

Through the steering wheel control I set the radio off delay to 0 seconds, but it only lasted for the first time I turned the ignition off. The next time I turned it off, the radio kept playing!

I would like to get that fixed, but not if they have to tear apart the dash to do it.

The lights off control did persist through multiple on/off cycles...

I have the same radio off problem still. I set it to 0 and it works for that 5 minutes. Come back to the truck later and it has reset to 45 seconds. Hopefully they'll fix it when I take it in tomorrow.

Nope! They "have never herd of this happening before". Bet they say that to everyone. Now I'm taking in again tomorrow for it.

posted this in another thread but just to complete this one...Page 291 of the manual says key off power delay should be canceled when a front door is opened.

Update: Service guy says they contacted Chrysler engineers and it is a problem with the radio, for both reasons, the key off power delay not saving and for the radio not shutting off with the key out when the door is opened. He says they had to order another radio and it will be here in a few days and take about 1.5 hours to replace.
