I have a sony xplod and the front of the unit was open when power to the unit was cut (lose wire) and it won't let me put the code in to unlock the unit with the facia open and I can't get it to go back to the closed position (operated by motors) any help would be very welcome.
Go to Sony.com and search out the user manual. Most of these units have a reset button for just these types of issues. The reset button is usually behind a tiny hole that you need to insert a paper clip into. You can also try disconnecting tthe ground from the car battery and reconnecting it. That could cause the radio to reset.

Have you checked all the connections, especially the "remote" turn on from the stereo? This wire is usually a small gauge "blue" wire coming from your head unit. When you turn on the head unit it will remotely power on the amp.
power wire from batt fused to positive on amp .earth wire eg - to bare metal in car with bolt or screw. remote wire from amp to remote wire on back of head unit mostly blue wire it tells amp when to turn on then you need a set of rca cables to send sound from head unit to amp they go in subout if you wanna use sub or rear or front out for full sound best thing is to buy amp kit cheaper most the time and all you need there
You Have constant power (yellow wire) but your Acc wire or switched power wire (RED WIRE) does not have power. Check the connection of this wire. You most likely have a blown fuse in your vehicles fuse panel.
First off, if you're using RCA preamp connections from the head unit to the amp, you don't need to put anything into the high level input connector. But if your head unit doesn't have RCA preamp outputs, then connect the front left to the white (+) and white/black stripped (-) wires and the front right to the grey (+) and grey/black stripped (-) wires. There is no need to connect the rear speaker outputs of the head unit to the high level input of the amp.
The remote turn-on wire from your amplifier is connected to a blue wire behind the head unit. That's a power antenna activation wire, so the amp only turns on when the tuner is on. Switch it to a blue/white wire from the head unit instead; that should be the amp remote turn-on output.
