Has removable front panel. My husband has been taking it off every night because of thefts in the neighborhood. Got a call from my husband this A.M. that, when he went to put it back on the car, he could not get it to work. It seems dead. Any suggestions as to what the problem may be?

There are special keys designed just for car stereo removal that are metal and shaped like a letter "U". You can get these keys / tools at your local parts store.... There is sometimes a bracket mounted inside the dashboard and there is a bolt coming from the back of the stereo and that bold is ran through a hole on the bracket and there is a nut or a cap on it to prevent theft.... There should be two holes on the front of the stereo on each side, you insert the two keys into those holes. You need to go under and up inside the dashboard where the stereo is and remove the theft nut or cap and once you have the nut / cap off, disconnect any plugs that are plugged into the stereo, then you push both of the keys outwards left and right and gently pull the stereo unit out....
He may have to get underneath the dashboard and see if their is a security strap or wire harness holding the radio into the mounting sleeve. It's common for installers to strap down the stereo to prevent thefts and other installer from easily taking the radio out. Have him keep trying.
You should have disconnected the battery and fully charged it before starting the car.

Yes, the front panel needs to be removed but it takes 2 minutes. There are two screws holding the panel on, look above the instrument cluster. Once you remove those, gently pry the panel loose with a small flathead.. there are probably 8 plastic clips that hold it on.
Once the panel is loose, you'll need to disconnect all the plugs from the back, like the headlight switch, Info Center, and AC/Heater controls. You'll probably also need to lower the tilt wheel all the way down and place the shifter all the way down as well. You should be able to work the panel out then.
The radio is then held in place with 2 - 4 screws.
