there are a couple of ways to wire it or do this.... if you wire your power line into a constant 12v power (like the cigarette lighter for example) then the radio will play unless you turn it off on your own. That's probably the easiest way, otherwise you could consider trying to wire a trip switch of some sort into the door frame that doesn't shut it off until you open the door...

I'm pretty sure the radio is wired to acc1 so can turn the engine off, but leave the key in the ignition and finish the song. If its hooked up to acc2 just wire it to acc1.

I just noticed today on my 06 EX, the windows have power until you open the door. Check and see if you car does this. If it does then the best way to do it would be as follows: Get a relay and wire it to the window power wires, so the relay switches on and off with the window power. Then hook the switched side of the relay directly to the battery. By using a relay you won't be pulling the power from the window wires, which may get overloaded when blasting music and dropping all four windows, but it will switch the constant power from the battery on and off with window power. If you need more info on how relay works, and how to set it up just send me a PM, its really very simple. I hope you have a 7th gen, if not its going to be pretty difficult for you to do this.
