The radio has two knobs: one power knob and one volume knob. The power knob on the left will, as the name suggests, turn the radio on and off. The volume knob on the right adjusts the radio's volume; however, there are only two volume settings. Increasing the volume while Uncle Lütfi is riding with the player will prompt him to ask the player to lower the volume again.
The radio is an electrical component, similar to the headlights. Therefore, if the radio is on while the engine is not running, it will drain power from the battery. Unlike the headlights, however, the radio will automatically turn itself off when the engine is shut down.
