just found out when i was cleaning the car that the shaker pro sub in the trunk is always on and drawing power even when the car is off....
i have not had the car on or any of the power for a 1 1/2 days and i was in the trunk and noticed a hissing coming from the sub....
even when the car is off its still drawing power which could cause the battery to drain....

solution: Fuse #5 in the passenger panel box...down by passenger feet, there is a panel with fuses behind it. i took that fuse out. of course you dont have your shaker sub but if your like me, i really dont need it since i probably wont have the radio on much...the radio still works but you wont get the huge thumping that you might be looking for....

but as always its up to you what you want to do.

That doesn't sound right. I'll check mine but powering down amps has been done for years. It's no new idea. If it's not powering down, something has to be wrong. If it's designed that way, then that's extremely poor design.

I would think when you popped the trunk release certain modules "woke up" and would make you think the sub is always powered but it certainly should not be....

This is likely. Leave the trunk open for more than 5 minutes and recheck if the sub is still making noise.

reason #1796 for avoiding this package then! That is a very strange design choice...

Were you able to check and see if your sub powered down?

My sub did come on when I popped the trunk, however within a minute or 2 it shut off.

That is because your AUX power enabled.....much like arming/disarming your alarm

I'd put money that its not always on, the battery would drain overnight. I'm sure it "woke" up when the key was close, or the door or trunk opened

Curious to hear what happens with others on this. I'm not going to put mine in right away cause it wasn't easy to take out! If it does in fact cut off then I'll put it back in. I'm just panic mode due to my 2006 with similar issue where the radio had a parasidic drain so...

as soon as the car detects the key it starts turning things on. Opening the door, trunk or hood will wake up the Body Control Module which controls a lot of functions through the car.

I noticed this a few weeks ago. I hear the hiss in the door speakers as well. It stops after a minute or two. I also believe that it's just the car detecting the key. This car makes all sorts of electrical noises when unlocking and locking.
