Radio mystery

Went to the shop to clean my truck today. Kiddo as inside playing around (keys were in the house). Anyways..... I seen him push the power button and the radio turned on. No keys, truck has. It been started in almost a week, etc. I was messing with it and it turns off and on but after 10 min or so of the doors being closed it was still on. Didn't even know it did that. Anyone know this? Wondering how long it will all stay on until it turns off? 2015 f350 cc lariat.

Yes, it does this. It is not a mystery. You can open the doors and push the on/off button and the radio will turn on with out ignition key. Not sure what the limit is before it times out. I use the feature at times when I go out to truck to program a destination into the NAV. It is in the owner's manual but not sure where.

You can also play the radio for up to 30 minutes after you turn the key off and remove it as long as you do not open the door.
