HELLO!

As I was cleaning my cute cougar's windows, I thought "Lets turn on some music" so I pushed the on button. Nothing happened. So I looked in the manual to see how to turn on the radio without the car on. Well, it has the 99/00 radio in it, not the 01 radio.

SO my question is how do you turn on the radio in a 01 cougar w/out the engine running?

or is this another feature I am going to miss??

Yep, that's another thing you're gonna miss. Only the stock 99 decks had that. The single cd/tape/radio combo deck introduced in 2000 does not do that. I'm asuming that's the deck you probably have?

i had a 2000 cd deck and it let me do that.... installed it in a friends car just yesterday... never check to see if that feature worked in a non-cougar vehicle but i'm assuming it would.

I have a 2000 CD deck and mine turns on without the car on or key turned to accesories as well. Did they have a Deck with all three: CD/Tape/Radio in 2000, if so, I would have liked to get that. PM me if they did so I can info from you so I can ask my dealership about it, since I paid for the premium sound package, I should have had that in my car then.

edited: you get the cd/tape/radio w/the sports package I believe. Did you get that?

My old silver 2000 cougar with the detachable face could turn on, my new 2000 without the detachable face but with tape/cd and a liitle "clear fake wood display" can not! I covered my stupid "beepin" speaker with sum ducktape to shut it up when I was woking on my car, it works!!!!

In 2000 there were TWO decks that offer CD:
1) The same old single-disc/am/fm that was also available in 99
2) A single-disc PLUS tape plus am/fm that debuted (in the Cougars) in 2000. This is the one I have and it does NOT have that feature of turning on without the ignition in ACC or ON.
