Many aftermarket car stereo has to output trigger wires, one antenna and one amplifier. Antenna trigger only works in radio mode for the power antenna to operate. Amplifier wire operates in any mode the stereo is in. Check to make sure you hooked up the correct blue wire to your amplifer.

SOURCE: KDC MP242 faceplate will not
Im not sure if this is gonna fix your problem because im not exactly sure what you mean when you say you ran the player directly to the battery....but if the faceplate is not lighting up then it is possible that you may have not connected some of the wires properly. Some head units come with illumination wires which I believe are usually orange and that could fix the problem of the faceplate not lighting up....I hope that you are not actually running it straight to your battery..like under your hood, straight to your battery. I would imagine that you have purchased the proper wire harness and have matched the wires properly in the dash to the radio harness. If you do not have all of the wires hooked up and the harness plugged in to the radio and ready to go like your gonna put it in the dash to bolt it in then do that. Hook everything up properly with the wires and the harness so its like its ready to be bolted in and then test it...if the faceplate is still not lighting up then you may need to bring it somewhere to have it done professionally or if you are confident you are doing everything properly then it could be a faulty screen. I can add that I have installed many radios and had have lots that I have not needed a use of that orange illumination wire for.....its pretty straight forward just matching the colors and connecting them...but if you have never done it then you should probably take it somewhere, just not sure if you have ever done it before. Hope this was helpful to you.. :) Good Luck!

No with out the faceplate which has the main control module for the unit there is no way to run this unit. The face of the deck actually has some value. An you couldnt even find a face plate if you wanted to. If i were you just go online and buy a 40$ jvc or something there super cheap and have all the same features as that model an more like usb flash drive attachemen and audio inputs. An if it gets stolen it wont matter as much cause its only a 40$ deck.
