Re: power shuts off after 5 seconds
What it's doing is sensing an overload of voltage this is an internal circuit problem. you can either have it repaired by an audio tech or replace it with a new one if the cost of repair is more than what the deck is worth. please rate this.. thanks

hi marnie, if all the power and speaker cables are connected correctly, then you might have a faulty or shorted speaker in the vehicle.your unit is sensing a fault condition. check the impedance of eack speaker connected to the unit from the harness plug. if this does not help then your unit needs to be bench tested.
Please check if the connector of the faceplate and head unit don't have dirty or bended pins, these can produce false contacts between them and can produce fails as the one you have, if this is OK, maybe you have a bad faceplate or head unit.
Interesting enough! One thing that I can say is when what you described happens, its usually when the player is not actually powered on. Meaning, I can load and unload cds from my player when the car is turned off and it will show me the clock and all that you described. That is because I still have power going to it when the car is not on. Therefore, the only thing that would be missing is the power wire that powers the player when the car is on. (try to follow me on this lol!) The YELLOW wire is usually the constant power from the battery to the unit, that would allow the unit to perform as you say, the RED wire is what powers on the unit when the car is turned on. It sounds like the problem would lay somewhere in there. One way to check this, (BE careful not to blow anything), take your cd player out of the car, put the red and yellow wires together, place the black wire to the ground on the battery and the red and yellow wire to the positive side of the battery. This will be all the power you need. Try to operate the cd player now and if everything works, you know that your just missing the Red wires power. Hope this helps.
I had this problem and it turned out to be the fuse located inside the cabin. i had checked (and replaced) the fuse in the engine compartment but didn't think about the one under the steering column. It was an immediate fix.
Check your wires they might be touching steel around your car mostly look at your yellow and red wires those are the 1' that give it power and light to your radio also check your radio fuse in the back.
