Thank you for allowing me to assist you, my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your concern today.
This can actually have to do with the unit itself and the contacts as well. To pinpoint what the problem is when the radio has turned off use a voltmeter to check on the wires if power or ground has been lost, if neither than the problem is within the radio and or connector, if either power or ground lost before the radio connector then you need to back trace that wire to where the problem is. When you wiggle the wires it could be the wires, it could be the connector/contacts or it could be inside the unit from the connector as well and thus the reason you will need to use a voltmeter for testing.
Thank you!
