Drive In Movie Settings

2012 Touareg TDI. I’d like to know if there is a way to keep the radio on during a Drive In movie? Currently we turn off ignition and start the infotainment center with the power button. But it only stays on 5 mins. Help? Thanks!

OP is not talking about VIM (Video In Motion).

I do not believe there is any way to make the radio stay on longer when the ignition is off. And I didn't think there were any drive in movies anymore!

I believe that you can just keep the ignition on ACC and it won't turn off after that initial 5min....

But your parking lights are ON when in ACC, yes? This is a giant NO NO at a drive in. Others will be pissed, and rightly so.

I am also interested in how to make this happen. When I am doing work int he garage, I open the windows and press the radio power, listen to music while working, but it shuts off like the OP says. An annoyance for sure.

My vehicle came with a headlight switch that can be set to OFF instead of being left on AUTO.... so I can turn my lights off if that's what I want.

Ignition on, headlamp switch OFF, parking brake ON will result in no lights on.

Never having been to a drive-in movie, I was wondering why you'd have the radio on whilst watching a film because. old fashioned as I am, when you see a drive-in movie scene at the flix you got a loudspeaker that hooked on the car. So I presume that nowadays you tune your radio in to get the movie's soundtrack?

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
