Problem turning unit on

The unit just testing it out before hooking everything up, does not turn on. The flashing red security light is there so it is getting power, but the unit fails to turn on. What might be the cause of this? First thought I came to was a bad wiring harness so I connected a different harness into it for a Pioneer and tapped it into the factory harness. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks !!

I have just installed a JVC KDR406 head unit in my car, the thing turns on but only for 3 secs then shuts down, everything is hooked up fine, just don't have power for long, turns on when i push eject or...

This is normally caused when the unit does not recognize constant voltage. To bench test radio combine both red and yellow and run to constant voltage to see if it happens to turn on. If i does, most likely your RED connection was not connected properly.

It's called delayed acc. power. It should shut off as soon as you open the door. Unless the red stereo wire is hooked up to constant power. You may need to check with a test light.

Security light flashing won't start

You need to reprogram the security system. Hook up a battery charger. Turn the key on for 11 min. The security light should go off. Turn the key off for 5 sec. Turn the key on for 11 minutes again. repeat this three times. After the 3rd time the truck should start

Jensen VM9311/ UV7i wont turn on!!?

Yo, I've got the perfect solution to your problem. Pull out the head unit from your dash. Then, remove the wiring harness carefully from the unit. Now, push in the yellow power wire (even jiggle it a little) making sure it's tightly snug the small port of the wiring harness. Then, plug the harness back into the unit and try turning it on. I've found that the wires come lose easily on this unit. hit me back up at
