IS it the sound cuts out, or does the unit switch off completely ?

Ok I fixed my problem with this deck. I didn't have the power module hooked up (the big silver box thing with yellow and black leads that hook up to it) I thought it was just of the internal amp but I was mistaken. The Deck needs that moduel to function properly.

My memory wont work after 5 minutes or truck shut off but will after a minute or less

Are you positive that the yellow (memory wire) from the Panasonic (use a test lamp or meter) is continuing to get power after you turn off the truck and wait 5 minutes? And the Black ground is proper ... If so then it will likely cost more to repair the deck than replace it. Or you could wire the red wire to the same place the yellow wire is wired to ... then just remember to shut it off when you leave the car (or suffer a dead battery 12 hours later) ... and it won't cost more that the cost of a couple crimp connectors to do that ... the frugal way.

Rear speakers low volume

Double check your settings on your radio. Mostly your Fade levels. If that is not the cause you may a chip going out in the head unit. The chip is fairly simple to purchase, remove and replace depending on your soldering skills. Let me know if the fade levels correct it. If it doesn't then I will help you find the replacement chip to order and replace.

If you using external amplifiers with you system;check your remote wires.
You may be using the wrong remote wire to turn you amp on.
There are two remote wires,one is for pwr ANTENNA(BLUE ONLY),this wire cut the pwr out when you insert a cd.
The other wire is the REMOTE TURN ON(BLUE/WHITE STRIPE)this is the one you need to connect to the you amp.

Lighting on deck

It could be the dimmer - Press and hold [MENU] (DIM) for more than 2 seconds to change dimmer level setting. I suppose you tried playing with the display button as well. Besides these, there's also a decent chance that either the display lamp is not getting power, or that it's out. That takes taking the thing apart, and you probably don't want to do that. Better take it to a repair shop in that case. Good luck
