Drove most of the day everything fine. Radio played, Sat played, Am/Fm played and media played. Stopped for evening, Shut off car, got out and radio still playing. Had to press the stop/start button 3 or 4 times before radio would go off. About an hour later went out for food. Car starts fine BUT no sound from radio, sat, media nothing. The infotainment screen is up and running fine. It shows all the functions and changes as I try to change it, Wen to media function and it changes songs as I change them. The only sound is from the NAV- a- witch telling me to turn somewhere.. Shut off nav function, made no difference. Shut off car after eating, the infotainment cluster stayed lit up for about 15t minutes before shutting off.
Closest dealer is about 4 hours away, and on my route anyway, guess he gets a visit tomorrow! The T57 flash was done laast week. All has been fine until this evening.....arrrrgh

The radio stays on until you shut the car off and lock the doors. The radio delay time is selectable in the menu options.
I suggest before going all the way to the dealer, to reboot the infotainment (after you start the car, push the volume knob for 5 seconds to turn it off and then again to turn it back on).
If that doesn't work, unplug the - cable of the battery which is located in the trunk, replug it and take a couple short drives shutting the car off in between.

My car radio stays on until I open door, If I don't open door it will time out.

Il_Conte..
Understand the ""on until the doors lock"function, the issue I have is no sound. (except for the nav a witch) the dealer is on my way to my destination, so going that way anyway, I'll unplug battery and see what that does.
Cheers

The volumes are all limited to their function, i.e., Nav has a dedicated volume, so does "radio". Could you have just turned that way down?

Also, mine did that once. Need a few hours nap to fix it.

Well DUH! As many of these that I have owned I should have realized it was an ALFA!! Must have been Tuesday.. Did the restart/boot thing, no luck did the battery cable trick, no luck. Left for the rest of the trip today, about an hour down the road it jus started playing again. Everything works like before......

Silly me, to think it was something wrong...
Have a great day all.

Yep, sounds about like mine. I was driving to the dealership so they could look at it and boom starts working.

In the end they still wanted to change my amp out and Ive never had an issue since then - so maybe something to look at (there was an RRT on this).
