    Default New Kenwood KDC X997 Locks Out After Starting Engine

    Replaced my old stereo that worked fine with radio and CD's. The new KDC X997 will lock up almost every time after I start the engine. I have to pull the face plate and push reset button to get it going again. When I start I see the stereo go blank, sometimes it will come back after about 30 to 45 seconds or there is a red blinking light and a small line through the center of the display.

    I asked the shop that I got it from and they weren't much help except to offer replacement if it is defective.

    I wired it the same way as the old one. Both red & yellow power wires from the stereo go to only one power wire from the boat.

    Can I run a new power wire directly to one of my batteries? Will it make a difference?

    I put the same unit in this year with zero troubles. My yellow wire goes to constant 12v and red goes through perko so when batteries are off I don't loose all my settings.
