Resetting Sony CDX GT170

I own a Sony CDX GT170 stereo, and after some battery problems changed out that, after connecting everything back up and the radio won't turn on.

In common practice, and after reading the manual, you need to reset the stereo after every time the battery is disconnected.

After removing the first piece, where the diagram in the manual says there should be one, there is no reset button.

I've looked on the surfaces of both pieces thoroughly and cannot find anything remotely resembling a reset button.

The manual is for multiple models, so narrowing it down from there is tough.

I need to find the reset button for the stereo, or whatever so that it will turn back on.

    I have removed the face plate. There is NOTHING even resembling a reset button. I've looked all over the surface of it.

If you remove the face you should see a small port hole with rest written above the hole

the yellow wire on the radio harness needs to have a constant 12v power supply and the red wire needs a switched 12v supply and that should solve your problem

There is a fuse in the back of the stereo unit. Also trace the red wire from the stereo to where it's connected, and check the fuse for the circuit that the stereo is connected to.

Hold the volume button down until the clock setting comes on. Then press the same button until you see "Demo:On" on the screen. Turn the volume either up or down to change the setting and then hold the volume button down until you see "AUX" or "TUNER" on the main screen again.
