    So my iphone 7+ always defaults to try and play music as soon as my vehicle turns on. Yes it is connected via bluetooth for phone purposes. But if I have the radio on Xm or FM the phone lock screen will still default to play music. Anyway to stop this?

    This apparently has occurred for a while. For example, the iPhone 4S:

    Is it always playing the same song when you turn on the car? The first song? That is most likely your car's fault. Volkswagen (in the link) had a update to disable this.

    You could make a song with silence and name it "aaaaaa" so it shows as the first song. Then manually stop the music each time.

    Considering this is such an old issue, its likely the car's fault. This thread from 2011 talks about it being a car setting: https://forums.macrumors.com/threads/any-way-to-turn-off-autoplay-with-bluetooth-audio.1245173/

    If you use a different app for your music you can always delete the stock app.

    It plays the last song I manually played.

    You could also check with you car dealer and ask if their is an update for your vehicle.
