I have a sony xplod and the front of the unit was open when power to the unit was cut (lose wire) and it won't let me put the code in to unlock the unit with the facia open and I can't get it to go back to the closed position (operated by motors) any help would be very welcome.
Go to Sony.com and search out the user manual. Most of these units have a reset button for just these types of issues. The reset button is usually behind a tiny hole that you need to insert a paper clip into. You can also try disconnecting tthe ground from the car battery and reconnecting it. That could cause the radio to reset.

Connect black to earth or battery negative. Connect red to battery positive or the acc lead from your ignition switch. If connected to acc the unit will power down when the vehicle is switched off. If connected to battery positive it will remain on irrespective of ignition switch position. Connect yellow to battery positive for memory power. The moment this lead loses power all the settings/memory on the unit will be lost. Leave a comment if you require further assistance
You Have constant power (yellow wire) but your Acc wire or switched power wire (RED WIRE) does not have power. Check the connection of this wire. You most likely have a blown fuse in your vehicles fuse panel.
Guessing that you don't still have the owners/install manual.
On the back of the head unit there should be a group of unused/unconnected wires (with any luck they will be marked), one or more might be an amp turn-on or power antenna lead, so I suggest (with the unit turned on) testing each wire with a DC voltage tester so as to identify and separate any leads supplying 12+ volts. the remaining group will consist of speaker leads. Trial and error testing will determine the proper L & R rear speaker leads.
You have put the remote antenna wire to the remote turn on of the amplifier. The radio cuts off the power to the "power antenna" when you switch to a different mode... so your amplifier is now losing the turn on signal it requires to stay on.
Simple 2 minute fix.
