I wish I had the original head unit. Sure, the Kenwood gives me Bluetooth (audio and of course phone connection, USB, aux input, as well as a CD. I would gladly trade that for a system that works as it should. Now that I know there is a problem it will bother me until I take care of it.
If there is a major problem, I am stuck for a while. It is not in my budget to replace speakers, amps, and wiring.

Stop reading now if you do not want to read an unrelated story. Keep reading of you want to know what clogged catalytic converters can do.
My Dodge Ram is in need of a new engine. The catalytic converters clogged. The added pressure not only pushed oil through the intake manifold, it also destroyed the cooling system. It never occurred to me to check the cats when I had to replace the radiator hoses, water pump, thermostat, and radiator (the entire cooling system failed - a first for me). The final scream for help was the engine blowing the bottom radiator hose off. The truck ran hot before the guages recognized it (the sensors cannot read air and steam well in an open system). I assumed the hose to be a bad install on my part. The death came when the truck blew a head and made an oil and coolant milkshake.
Needless to say, I wasted a lot of money on the truck (I actually need the truck. I use my truck). The engine needs new heads and a complete bottom end rebuild. In reality, it needs a crate or rebuilt engine. I don't see this happening for a while. Engines and engine work costs more than I have to invest at the moment.
There is the long explaination for not spending money on a car stereo.
Dontations of engines and stereos are welcome
