Taking a flying guess the wire could have two possible functions - either providing the radio with additional illumination when the vehicle lights are on or if the illumination is permanent it could dim the display, etc. when the lights are switched on.

You probably have a bad switch on the face. If you have a switch that is letting any voltage through, the microprocessor assumes that it is receiving a command. The microprocessor can handle only one command at a time and locks up.

The problem is actually the wiring. Check the installation manual, I guarantee the "pro" installer took a shortcut.

There are two power wires (yellow & red +) and a ground wire (black -).
Now, black goes to chassis grounding point. Easy.

Yellow goes to a live terminal in the fuse block for constant 12V.
This retains the settings and clock etc.

Red goes to an ACCESSORY terminal in the fuse block (so key must be turned to at least ACC to allow it to be switched on).

But in the case of my car, the idiot who installed it ran the red wire directly to the + battery terminal. That's wrong, and will drain the battery.

Google for an installation manual, I'm certain your JVC head units will be the same procedure.
