Welcome to the site.
Two things first, and then we'll get to your issue.
1. You made two threads within the same section. Only one thread is needed. No need to duplicate your threads
2. I changed the title of your thread from "Help!! My stereo is killing me!" to what you see above. This helps other users who might be searching for a similar issue that you're having, with key words within the search bar. Having words like "Help" and "My stereo is killing me" isn't helping other users.
On to your issue.....
Never, ever install a radio without a harness. I mean, you "can", but it's dumb to do so. Wire harness adapters are so incredibly cheap, that it's just common sense to use one. It definitely takes out the equation of a wiring issue when it comes to troubleshooting.
If I were you, I'd grab yourself a multi-meter, and start probing your power wire(s) when the issue occurs. The means that you'll need to have the radio out of the center console, but still connected. Watch your voltage when the problem occurs. After this procedure, we can go to the next step of troubleshooting.
Lastly, have you tried another radio just to make sure you don't have an internal issue with it? If not, find a buddy with one laying around and give it a try.
