It could be that the player is going into protect mode. This is normally due to a short in a speaker cable, or one or more of your speakers is blown. Try disconnecting all of your speaker cables at the speaker end and make sure the connectors don't touch. Power it up again and see if it stays on. Bear in mind you won't hear anything. If it powers up. Carefully plug each speaker back in. It will power off if you plug in the dud! If it still doesn't power up. disconnect all of your speaker cables at the player end. If it powers up this time one of your cables is shorted. Same as the speakers, plug one pair of wires in at a time to find the dud. If it's still switching off. It could be a blown circuit on the output stage of the amp. Here's a silly question. Does the player get hot? All this assumes that you have had this player working with these cables and speakers before. If not check that the speakers are the correct rating (Resistance in Ohms) for the player. And lastly here's where you can get a manual http://www.kenwoodusa.com/Support/Car_Files/#_

i had the same problem as you, i own a 98 ford escort, and i couldnt find a wiring diagram that matched the ones in my car . i managed to connect the constant (red) and switched (yellow) to the wires in the car but i had made a mistake with the ground (black) . so i re connected it to where its suppose to go so now the head unit actually lights up and turns on.
now i have another problem because my head unit doesnt stay on for any longer than 1 mintute

ok black is ground, red is remote, yellow is battery, orange is illumination, make sure the antenna wire is in and you hold down the SRC button for about 3 to 5 seconds. please vote.
