Need to turn it off to tow vehicle behind motor
Usually, On a pioneer stereo, the button that you press to change
sources (Tuner, CD, etc etc).. if you hold it in, the unit will turn
Look for a button that says Power, or PWR near it with a
Square and little line coming from the square, that means you need to
hold that button to perform that function. Hope this helps.

The face opens up but there it doesnt light up or play music
You need the ribbon cable kit that pioneer sels to repair it. Kit is sometimes on ebay for around 25.00.
They usually don't include the second ribbon cable and you DO need that too.
You can go to
Monday - Friday: 7:00am - 4:30pm PST
Closed on Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays.
tell them you want the kit that comes with a new bezel and the left hand (smaller) ribbon cable also.
They should be able to look up part #'s and give you a price right there.
You will then need to have them installed or install them yourself. It's not impossible, bit it's not that easy either. If you are good with small mechanisms, and delicate things, you will be ok. I think the kit even comes with instructions.
You will need to remove the unit from the car.
REplacing both the cables will bring your unit back to life. It retailed for over 600$ in it's day. A nice radio for sure. Kinda like a transformer. ;-0

For most Pioneer single CD players, you can set the clock using the following steps:
1.Press and hold the SOURCE button until the unit shuts off.
2.Press and hold SOURCE again until the clock appears. With some models you will press and hold the FUNCTION or AUDIO button instead of the SOURCE button.
3.Press the left or right arrow to select the segment of time you wish to adjust.
4.Press the up or down arrows to increase or decrease the numbers in the blinking segment.
5.Once the clock is set correctly, press the SOURCE button to exit.

Unit opens and closes on its own
I think I got the second half of the solution for this problem. Please look at post "Unit powers down when motorized face opens" for a solution. Seems like we need to buy the ribbon that connects to the face plate to fix this problem.
