Owned this radio for 6 weeks, with sporadic use. Yesterday the radio shut down for no reason. Subsequent attempts to turn it on had no effect. I am positive the connections are secure, since I tried the connections three times this morning to no avail. When I touch the power button, nothing happens. How can I resolve this?

Re: Radio shut down, now won't turn on
It's just a big microprocessor in there, nothing much to do... However, if you open it without batteries, you might find that the power button or switch is broken ( if like you said, you used it version sport), check for any bad connection or dirt. Connect a multimeter (volt) on the electronic board where batteries are connected put back the batteries and measure if you get power on the board. Leave the ground connected and with the + of your multimeter check on condensator if you get some power. Be carefully with the CPU, this kind of device are sensible. Usually the CPU (microprocessor) control the on and off of the device, so I don't have big hope. good luck

Did you ever find out what was wrong? My radio was doing exactly the same. Popped, shut off, came back on later, repeat.... Email me a reply if you wouldn't mind, I only found this site searching for a solution to the radio problem. Desertracer72@gmail.com
Hello, you will need to enter your radio unlock code using these instructions.
Press SEEK DOWN, SEEK UP, TUNE DOWN, or TUNE UP. The radio display should show 0000.
PRESS SEEK DOWN to set the first digit.
Press SEEK UP to set the second digit.
Press TUNE DOWN to set the third digit.
Press TUNE UP to set the fourth digit.
If the code was entered correctly, the radio will display SEC (SECURE). The theft deterrent system for the radio is now active and normal operation may be resumed. If the code was entered incorrectly, the radio will display Err for 5 seconds and the LOC (LOCKED) will be displayed again. If LOC is displayed, repeat 1-6.
If the correct code is not entered in 8 attempts, follow the next steps:
Turn ignition to ACC position.
Turn radio power switch OFF.
Wait one hour before repeating steps 1 through 7. If attempts to unlock the system are made before the one hour period is up, the radio will display INOP (INOPERATIVE). Continue to wait. If the ignition is not in the ACC position, power will never reset internally to allow itself to be unlocked.
After one hour, repeat steps 1-7.
To get the code in: 1. Turn the stereo off.
2. Turn off the ignition
3. Turn the ignition back on (dash warning lights on)
4. Hold and keep down the AS button on the stereo.
5. Turn the stereo on.
6. Release the AS button after 4 dashes appear on the display
7. Now enter code (if code = 7009. Press preset button 1 seven times, button
4 nine times
If you go past you can go round again by pressing the
preset button repeatedly
8. Once all 4 numbers are correct hold down AS again until you hear a beep (2 - 5 seconds)
9. The stereo after beeping will scan to program channels You have 10 attempts to get the code in. However some models will not give you the number of attempts remaining!
I had the same problem, the main plug in the back of the radio does not seat correctly, you have to buy the radio removal tools which are four "keys" you pop into the four corner slots of the radio, pull out the radio, unclip the main wire plug and re-clip it in... it'll work fine, however, its happened to me about 3 times in the 6 years I've owned the car, so keep those keys handy. Oh, and don't believe any dealer that'll tell you different, my dealer told me I needed a new $500 radio, and the radio removal tools were like $300.... I got them for like $20 on ebay.
