You should disconnect the red wire that goes to battery. Leave disconnected for at least 8 hours so the player can reset. Most newer electroinics have these stupid protection systems that are way to touchy. I think companies just don't want us listening to loud music anymore.
1) Turn on the car. 2) The faceplate rotates out and the CODE - - - - prompt appears. 3)
Press >>| and Auto keys simultaneously on the faceplate and hold
for 4 seconds. (If the faceplate rotates back into the console push on
the upper left top edge of the faceplate and it will flip back around.
Press the Eject button and then try it again.) 4) The screen will
still say CODE, but the - - - - will disappear! When this happens press
the 5 key on the remote twice and it enters a K on the display on the
faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate. 5) Press the 2
key on the remote three times and it enters a C on the display on the
faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate. 6) Press the 2
key on the remote once and it enters an A on the display on the
faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate. 7) Press the 7
key on the remote twice and it enters an R on the display on the
faceplate. Hit the >>| key on the faceplate. 8) The radio goes into All Off mode and you are set! Hit the SRC button on the faceplate to select CD, Radio, etc

that hole on that model is for a locking screw, the locking screw is installed to minimize theft and for other precautions. If the face plate is having any odd reactions its normally do to the flex cable. The best sign for a dying or dead flex cable is at the joint. The joint can be viewed at the point when you remove the face plate. Immediately after pulling the face plate off look behind the pivoting frame at the orange colored ribbon, you should only be able to see a small portion of it. If there is any sign of a yellowy residue its a sign that the protective covering of the ribbon is deteriorating. A bad flex cable is everything on the moving face plates.
