Maybe a protection component cutting in.
If you have speakers that are too powerful for the radio it may shut down to protect the amplifier from overdriving the speakers. That produces too much heat in the amp chips/transistors and they either have a overload cut out protection circuit or they burn out.
Even if the speakers are the stock fitted ones the wattage could be bigger than the amp in the radio can handle.
There's probably no way of knowing how powerful the speakers in the truck are but you could try the radio with another set.
Max 50 Watts for that radio. If you don't have the manual for it, it's available here:

My kenwood comes as if it is playing....radio or cd....but I have no sound...


check if your car has a stock amplifier and if it turns on. if it is on and you still get no sound check that your speakers are not touching ground.

Radio shuts down when volume is turned past half way. bad ground?


it could be several things, it could be a bad ground, a bad power connection, a bad speaker(s) or the deck itself could be bad, i would check all your connections first. if they all check good try disconnecting one speaker at a time.

New speakers are fuzzy


If it is an older vehicle you could have interference from the ignition system. You can wire the radio to be powered up from a toggle switch that get its power straight from the battery, with a fuse between the battery and switch of course. This will eliminate powering up the radio with the ignition switch and take the ignition system out of it. Also need to make sure the ground wire is grounded good and the ground wire is the same wire guage if not larger than the power wire.

It turns off when in high volume


a few things...your speakers may not be a perfect match for the unit. at high volume where the radio starts to distort there is an internal protection circuit that protects the radio...it's kicking in.
solution.  Buy a power amp and take the load off of the radio.

Kenwood new sterio shuts off when turning up volume


You may have a short in a speaker. Check to see that the wire terminals on the speaker itself aren't touching any metal. Even 1 terminal touching metal will cause issues. Hope this helps.
