I recently reinstalled a system and a new radio harness but my HU turns off when the car is started but ONLY when its started. Turn to the key to ACC or ON the HU powers and plays but when started, turns on for a brief second or two then powers off. I also hear a click around the pass. fuses or behind the radio. Would a crap battery be my case or whats the deal?

forgot to add, if i let the car run for a bit then shut it off and turn it back on the radio stays on. its really looking like a battery problem.

or it could be the new harness depending on the one you got

i have the scoshe chime box harness... no problems ever.. so maybe you did some wrong connections. i would pull it out and double check everything and see

its my 3rd chime box. its really pissing me off. i checked all the connections today and it appeared good. i'll do a full check this weekend. what other harnesses are available that people have/are using?

The scoshe kit is very crapy. In the winter time my radio does the same thing till the till the inside of the car warms up. Plays for about 5 seconds and the box will chime 3 time and the radio will turn off. Keep swaping till you get a working one, or use the metra chime box.
