The first thing that needs to be checked for is any blown fuses. If a blown fuse is found it will need to be replaced to resolve this issue.

If no blown fuses are found then you will have to have the head unit removed to test the power and ground signals to it to see if there is a loss of power or ground to the head unit. If there is no loss of power and ground and the connections to the head unit are all clean, tight and secure then the head unit itself will have to be replaced, unfortunately.

If you need to continue or if there is anything else I can assist with at all, let me know here and I will be happy to assist further.

Thanks, Pete
