Same **** happened to me, only I wasn't swapping starters, I was swapping systems.

Dunno what the issue is.. look for blown fuses.

it sounds like your unit only has constant power. check the red line from the cd player and make sure it gets to the battery, or another source successfully. maybe you managed to losen up the wire when doing the starter. this would explain why it works, but not fully.

I do not know if your running external amps but the head unit could have an option that turns off the outputs to the amps. "not sure of this never owned or used a kenwood" But check it.
