    Ok, feeling a little less smart than I think I am! Trying to find settings to turn off the radio whenever I start my Hellcat! The sound of the engine starting is music to my ears, and I do not wish to hear the stereo trying to drown it out! I would appreciate anyone able to steer me in the right direction! Thanks in advance, and Merry Christmas!!! Jim in Minneapolis

    Jim, you can't turn off the radio,, only mute it....I wanted to know the same thing...I know previous years you could...I'm guessing it has something to do with live data

    Thanks! So do I have access to muting it, or do I have to hit the power or volume button with every start? Thanks again! Jim

    Try holding the volume button in of a couple of seconds rather than just pressing it once. That works on some cars; hope it does on yours. Merry Christmas

    I just turn my radio down before I garage it and tuck it in at night. That way when I get in it in the morning and start it, all I hear is my baby's sexy roar and growl!!;) I also make sure it is set on a good song on my iPod so when I do turn the radio up, it is ready to jam! I'm kinda overzealous about details though...if you haven't noticed.o_O

    OCD?

    Hell yes, we probably all are here! Whenever the Vipers go in for service, the techs marvel that the bottom of the car is as clean as the painted side!

    BTW, here's a cleaning tip: When I picked up my first Viper at Connor Avenue Assembly Plant (CAAP), the car groom suggested using a mixture of 1 part Ethyl Alcohol (or Isopropyl, but I like Ethyl better) mixed with 5 parts of Distilled Water in a spray bottle. Spray on, wipe off with a Microfiber towel and it takes care of most bugs, road tar, etc. without taking any wax off. For troublesome bugs on the front fascia, use a wet Dryer Sponge and it get's bugs off like a Harley sliding across pig s*!t. Cheap and easy!
