Roadster JVC radio won't turn off

I had an aftermarket stereo (Kenwood KVT614) so my wires were NOT long enough and I also had a ton of other stuff (GPS, Bluetooth module, satellite radio, etc) that I was able to remove … I probably took out 10lbs of weight.
It's a pretty easy task if you follow the instructions, but you need to take it slow and should expect spending a day.
I ultimately also replaced the wires going down to the center console, so that I now have two USB-C cables and a 3.5mm audio-in going to my radio. that makes it much more future proof in my opinion.
I love that new radio, though the wifi reception is shockingly bad and the internet extremely slow (updates to apps on the device take hours).
Luckily I use it for AndroidAuto mirroring 99% of the time, so it is all good.

I have the original unit so I might still have enough wire...and I will have plenty of time as the car is going to stay stored for the coming winter months...even if I ended up taking the dash out! :)

I'm trying to find the mating connector used in the JVC radio, so I can try to create an adapter harness and avoid all the splicing!
