Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
If the radio isn't turning on the most likely problem is the radio itself. It receives a power and ground and is woken up through a communication bus message, if there are no other electrical problems at the same time then the problem is either the radio itself or a wiring issue affecting the radio only.
What would need to be done is test the power, ground and communication bus voltage at the radio at the time it won't come on. If all are ok then the radio can be condemned.

No, not the radio itself but the power,ground and communication bus voltage ?

The power feed is on the yellow/red wire in pin 1, ground is on the black wire at pin 12 . The communication bus wires are white/gray and white/orange.
