Hi. Usually when this type of thing happens to a radio there is a problem with the radio itself. Since you mentioned that you used the car wiring and not a wiring harness some of those wires could be shorting out because they are touching or they could just have a bad connection.

I suggest you take back the radio you have and get a new one. If you still have the original pig tail to the car wiring I suggest you rewire that into the car wiring harness and use a wiring harness to connect the radio to the car. Also make sure all wiring is connected properly and all bare wiring is taped up and protected from contacting other wiring.

If you need some assistance with this, have one of our mobile technicians come diagnose the issue with your radio at your home or office for an accurate repair.
