That's normal. The anti-theft light always blinks when you shut the car off,
regardless of whether the radio was on or off when you turned the key off.

I see nothing in the owners or service manuals about secret keypress
combinations to turn the radio on when the power button doesn't work. If you
find it again, I recommend writing it down.

That's not normal. I've heard of aftermarket alarm systems with such
features, but it would be kind of silly to include a carjack mode as
standard equipment and not tell anybody it's there. (Not that the Swedes
don't do the occasional silly thing, mind you.)

The standard combination is one press of the power button. I swear.
