 Radio shut Of

I installed a Sony Headunit (brand new) and for some reason it shuts down sometimes, even when playing at normal volume. All the connections are secure, all wires are connected tightly and all got juice, so wha could be the problem, I have actaully incoutered this problelm with other radios also. what could it be. When I do my instalations I turn off the vehicle and I take Of the wire harness from the headunit and splice,connect and tape all the wires corectly (i use wire harneses for almost evry car, so It's color coded, almost impossible to make a mistake), and I connect the Radio harness to the headunit and turn on the car. and It works fine, then people come back and say "my radio shuts of after a while when Im listening to my music. I think it's not over heating becasue It usually shuts of after rangind 5-20 minuts playing. WHAT COULD IT BE?

This happens with a lot of your installations??? Or just a few?? How many times has it happened. There are so many variables, its hard to determine. However, if this is a re-occuring problem that happens with different brands of head units, in different cars...there really is only one variable; the installation. Somewhere along the line, something doesn't go right, nor does something stay connected. Try using a different type of connecter. If you are using "butt-splices", try crimp caps, try male/female disconnects. Always use insulated connectors, make a solid crimp, and there is no need for elctrical tape. Taking some wire ties and "bundeling" the harnesses is also a good idea.
