    well i have had this for over a year now, so by the unit being faulty do you mean the main part or the face plate, if i order a new face plate do you think it will work or no, oh and also i will def go back and rewire it to insure that everything is hooked up properly

Re:"everyother light turns on the faceplate but the display is off"

That means that the unit is either faulty, or one of the two powered lines required had not been connected.

The unit is reset by simply disconnecting the connector at the back.

This will not help in fixing the problem.

Ensure that unit is wired properly. Use a voltmeter to test wiring.

Here also the owner manual.

    Before replacing faceplate you need to read volts at wiring. There areat least two powered lines. One has power all the time, the other is connected to ignition switch and gets on when you turn the key. They should be the red and the yellow, but colors may be different sometimes. They must both have +12V when ignition key is on.

I lost over half my options and can not find a reset button

no reset on pioneer. You have to either disconnect it from the wiring loom or disconnect the battery. Allow a minute or so if disonnecting battery on car so as to discharge any capacitors in device.

Pioneer HU UB Series Power Shortage (Pioneer DEH-p5000UB)

Could be that your Passport is NTFS formatted - the Pioneer units will only read FAT 32 formatted drives. Mine is working great with a 60GB drive.
