Not much you can do my friend , I tried locating and using my resources to find you a Brain and it looks like its discontinued, Im sorry to say but this guy played you, he sold you the head unit without the brain, its really messed when people take advantage of honest people like yourself. Try ebay here and there if not your just going to have to upgrade my friend, sorry.
Same thing happened to me on 1 that I installed. There is a long molex cable on back of the head unit that goes to a tunr/amplifiwe usually mounted under the seat. This is the ontroll brain. It is either non existant, or you need to plug it back in behind the stereo. Mine was the same way,mounted in a Ford Escape, it somehow vibrated out! Go figure. Hopefully this silves it. Let me know.
I removed my brain from beneath my seat and exposed all wires and connections. I have found that on mine (kvt-815) there were two pinched wires- 1 for a speaker and the other the remote wire. I respliced these sections and tested my radio again. It appears to be working now and stays on again. I'm guessing one of the wires must have been touching something metal under the seat (seat frame) and grounding out. If the unit doesn't power on at all, check the fuse first. Otherwise, I would inspect every wire like I did and maybe you'll find a pinched (grounded) wire. Maybe I just got lucky... but at least it's working again and I don't have to replace the brain! Hope this helps.
