I just bought myself a new head unit for my car. I bought the Kenwood DPX502BT. I also bought myself a harness and a dash kit to make everything easy.... not exactly. First I had a problem with the harness not being pegged correctly then the dash kit was to small. So after I fix all that I got it all wired up. Last night my stereo was rockin. This morning it was working just fine as did last night. I get off of school and turn on my car to my stereo not even turning on! I have no idea what to do. All my fuses are fine and everything is wired correctly. Just a little FYI I bought this refurbished off Amazon from Sound of Tri-State Inc. (An authorized Dealer)

Pull it out and take it to an Audio shop,and let them bench test it with a diagnostic result page so that if its a faulty unit, you may be able to get it replaced under warranty....MAYBE?? Most shops may charge you $20 bucks or so.If it works fine, you may have a wiring issue.

Do you manage to solve this problem in the end? I have a similar situation now and I do not know what to do. I checked the audio system at the dealer and it turned out to be completely working. I can't return it, because I bought a used audio system and the warranty on it has already passed. I suspect that the problem lies in my car, so now I'm thinking about buying a diagnostic device in order to test my car with it. I decided that I should purchase, since judging by the reviews, this is one of the best diagnostic tools on the market. I will be happy if someone shares a solution to this problem, thank you in advance!
