I have a couple questions. So do you have your tablet setup to power on/off with ignition? Do you have audio through BT?
One comment I have is I now have quite a few tasks and profiles that include killing or restarting apps. It should work fine. I know there are media tasks that do things like stop/play music,etc.
Can you outline the steps in your tasker profile?

so far on power up its set as:
1. stay on
mode with ac or usb
2 bluetooth on
3 load app
4 load app rocket player
when power off
2 system lock
3 kill app
app car home
4 kill app
app rocket player
audio through bt ?? not sure what you mean
Where I was going with my question is that whether you are streaming the music via bluetooth or audio jack then many music apps have option to stop playing the music when audio is disconnected. What app are you using? You may not need to mess with killing the music app. For example Poweramp (so awesome it is) will stop playing when audio is disconnected whether it be via bluetooth or audio jack.
Does your tablet stay powered with the display timed out or does it actually shut down?
I overlooked your note about Rocket Player. That app seems to be just as cool as Poweramp so I would imagine there must be some settings within the app to configure the audio for disconnect.
yeah rocket seems ok and is free
the music will be played through 3.5 which will be left plugged in at all time (unless i take it out of car)
tablet does not shut down just screen goes black (best i can do)
So perhaps rather than killing the music app try replacing that task with Category MEDIA > MEDIA CONTROL > then from the Cmd drop menu select "Stop" or "Pause" if you want it to resume the play. This simulates tapping the stop or pause button on the music player. I would imagine you should be able to do the opposite for starting.
