How do I keep the radio on in a keyless Nissan Altima?

I sometimes end up waiting in the car while my kids are coming out of school. I’d like to listen to music, but I don’t know how to turn on the radio without starting the engine. Is there any good way for me to keep the radio on in a keyless Nissan Altima after I turn off the car?

It must be frustrating to have the radio shut off in the middle of a good song! Unfortunately, all your accessories will turn off when you press the engine button—including the radio, lights, and air conditioning. That said, you can turn the radio back on without starting the engine by pushing the engine button without depressing the brake.
From there, you can start the engine by pressing down on the brake and hitting the engine button again. Remember that using your radio for too long without cranking the engine could kill your battery. If you can avoid it, try not to use your electrical appliances without the engine.
