Buttons don't work for except the volume. CD will play, but can't turn deck off and it's stuck in demo mode.

The problem is most likely in the detachable face. You could purchase a new one but it would cost about $135. Might be better just to buy a new radio. You can check for the part at .

Face plate wont light up but it will play cd

Remove the face plate- you have not mentioned the make/model. Now use a brush to clean the contacts of the face plate and the head unit. If you notice any dirt use some methyl spirit to clean.
If possible measure the voltage at the terminals- also for more probe the unit must be removed and the voltage traced as this can be failure of the display unit, the display unit driver/.processor.

The buttons on the unit quit working with the exception of the OFF, volume, change channels. Can use the remote for most other functions. CD player will not open. Pressed the Reset button on unit plate but...

Unit was replaced. It wasn't worth the time or money to find out that I needed to replace it when I saw the cost of a new unit. I went to a local store that was more helpful than the Internet.

The car security is not connected to a head unit. It probably has a small blinking red light on it which blinks when you remove the faceplate and switch the ignition off. This is just an indicator which lets people see that the face plate is removed.

You can replace the headunit with any brand/model you want. It would be cheaper than buying a replacement faceplate.

Sony CDX-M8800 face plate is non responsive

There is a ribbon cable that tells the face what to do. You will have to take it in to get serviced as it is very hard to change. There are alot of pieces / parts inside.
hope this helps
