Ok... I'm taking a guess here... when you say it is locked, do you mean that the security lock is enabled, or are you referring to the inability to get into certain menus (like Audio Setup, and AV Interface). If the problem is the latter, you need to go to "Setup Memory" (Setup Menu), then select "Unlock". This is covered on page 82 of the manual.

Hi you need to unwire it all and leave it off for 24 hours this will reset any problem you have.
It sounds like it is wired up wrong somewere you can wire it direct without the brake this will also allow you to play dvd whislt driving this way passengers can watch dvd whilst driving also you will need to check all the wires as your problem sounds like either a wire wrong or the system has shorted out if this is the case and it has shorted it is going to be hard to get repaired and also expensive so iwould try unplugging it for 24 hours and then rewire it checking everywire is in the right place.
If you are 110% sure that it is wired up properly then the chances are the unit itself is damaged.
When you wire it back up make sure you do all the wires at the same time dont chage one after as this can cause the unit to malfunction give this a try and let me know how you get on ok
When you go to your source select you should be able to chose standby. once the radio is in standby you need to go back to your settings menu, then you can unlock the sub control. Also, I am pretty sure that radio has an option in the audio controls for zone one or zone two. If it is on two zones, it disables your fader to adjust front to rear. Thats a great radio, but it is easier to write computer programs than operate it. Hope this helps some. If all else fails, stop by your local best buy, the guys in the install bay are usualy pretty cool about helping. Hope this helps.
I had the same iss and what I finally figured out through the use of the book and just messing with it is- go to the menu seletion screes should be the upper right button on the screen or what would be a main menu of all the options - then scroll down to the next menu page there should be one button listed as standby- click it- then go back through your menus and adjust where needed for the sub. Then just adjust all you things to max- it worked for me. the lables for audio nad interface still had a lock on it but after hitting the standby button to can then change your settings that were previously locked up. then once done just go back to your tuner or dvd etc.. to get out of set up menu.
Sounds like a problem with the sound chip in the stereo. Disconnect the rca cables from the subs and check to see if the audio returns. If so. try using a different rca connection in the back. Also i think on them radio's if there is a built in sub drive you need to turn that off if you are using a amp to run the subs.
