Where could i fond the wiring diagram for my Kenwood Excelon KDC-X592 Car CD/ MP3 Player?

There are vehicle - specific adapter plugs for after market radio hook ups. These adapters are used to connect the original plug that was connected to the original radio with the new radio's plug.

You didn't list what vehicle you have, year, model. You can do a web search with " (year and model of vehicle) radio wiring adapter".
Hopefully you'll find the adapter for your vehicle.

How to reset an kenwood excelon KDC-X890 display screen is blank

If the screen is blank I doubt if resetting it will help. More than likely you have some bad solder connections on some surface mount resisters inside of the radio. Unless you are good at soldering small components I would suggest you have it repaired professionally.
