I bought the car with this kenwood dnx 6980 unit with garmin

Customer Question

I bought the car with this kenwood dnx 6980 unit with garmin nav, the unit will turn on and and back off in about 10 secs frequency, no button will function except the power button, unplugged and reset the unit with no change. I removed the unit and connected to the external battery to eliminate wiring issues. The fuse at the back of the unit has constant 12+ volts without losing power. Any suggestion to get me back on the road? Thanks
