What has most likely happened is the when the car died it was probably jumped off. Anytime a vehicle is jumped off, especially off a much larger vehicle, a "jump" of voltage is sent throughout the vehicle also known as a surge. The surge travels through the vehicle's electrical system and sometimes blows bulbs, fuses and relays. The back of your radio should have a fuse check it because It's probably blown. If the fuse is good refer to your vehicle manual to locate the fuse panel and find the radio fuse it might be blown. Hope this helps
go to ebay and type in the model number of the unit and it will bring up some part that can fix the problem. i had the same problem and i just ordered the part. its actually a ribbon connector. im sure you just open up the radio and take the old one out and connect the new one up. this seems to be a common problem with this unit. the ribbon just starts to tear, and as it tears, you will start to lose functions on the stereo. i happen to like this stereo, so i decided to repair it. good luck with yours.
I have a few suggestions that may help. Have you checked the fuses?There is on on the stereo and one in the car's fuse box. Are all of theconnections from the wiring harness secure? Make sure these are tightand show no signs of damage, especially the ground connection. Also, ifthe face is detachable, check the connectors (on the face and thestereo) for damage or dirt or anything that would prevent a goodconnection. Pushing the reset button should not have prevented you fromoperation of the unit, so it has to be either an external fault (likewhat I described above) or an internal problem. How old is the CDplayer? If it is still under warranty, I would call Sony or go to theirwebsite and speak to one of their techs.

First, make sure that the face is the correct one for the unit. I have had a couple of friends buy from salvage yards and the owners of the yards will take the faces off and put them all in a box - but forget which one goes with which. If this is the correct face for the unit, and all of the connections are good, the face should be displaying "CODE IN". This is where you would enter the unlock code - with the REMOTE. If you don't have the remote, then I'm not sure if you can unlock the unit. I've been to a few sites researching this question and have yet to find a way to enter the code without the remote. If you didn't spend very much on the unit, then it's not a big loss, but I would look into buying one new. It's almost impossible to get the default codes from the manufacturer for a used unit without the proper identification - i.e. receipt, product registration code, etc. Hope this answered your question.
