    Stop auto shut down when I get out

    Hi. I often wish to get out of my car to grab some items and then get back in and drive off.
    I also like to leave the radio on during this time.
    Currently my Skoda superb '16 will do the following
    - if I leave the engine running it will stay on until I reopen the door at which point it will turn off, forcing a manual restart.
    - the radio will turn off after a few minutes
    Is there any override for these settings?

    Probably done for safety reasons I lock my car at the servo while filling it up and would never leave it with engine running, which if you are more than 3 m away is illegal anyway.

    Why do you want the radio to stay on if you arent there.

    Probably can be altered with appropriate tools but not a very logical thing to do

    I might need to jump out of the car to grab something quickly. Eg from a storage unit I can drive right up to.
    It seems to cost about 5km on the distance remaining for each restart, so would prefer to leave running .
    Or if I'm going to be longer I'd like to turn off but leave the radio running while I'm there which I can do easily with my iLoad van.

    I guess so, insofar as that's the default? If I'm sitting at traffic lights it will stop to preserve petrol, but restart via the accelerator.
