Is the car running when it shuts off? Sometimes when my car's off the Alpine will shut off due as a feature. Means it's not getting enough power. Also, check for loose connections... power and ground

Sounds like a bad HU... time to get rid of that Kenwood.

make sure any unused RCA inputs are covered, they could be shorting out the deck if they aren't. You can also try a new ground

I had a similar problem with my old eXcelon. Long story short the harness plug in the back of the radio just never clipped in place tight enough, so I used a wooden shim to hold it in place tighter and problem solved. I just used one on the bottom to hold the plug up in place and so it couldn't wiggle around.
