No sub signal from a CDX GT520.

connect the speake(sub) directly to the stereo(just use one of the rear 6x9 speaker wire to test the sub and make sure it's not the amp. if it does not work, it's the sub

Can you use a cdx7005x face plate on a cdx gt520 body

You generally cannot interchange headunits and faceplates, they often speak different "languages".
The reason yours lights up when down means the power pins are in similar positions but the other pins don't necessarily correspond.

Can a sony cdx-gt52w be installed into a 2005 kia sorento? The wires don't match up. Do I have to rewire?

I just got a mounting kit so the deck would fit. I got the mounting kit to support a 205 kia sorento lx. Then you just get a wiring harness for your vehicle and match up the wire colors on your wiring harness to the ones on the wires that came with the cd player. That's how I did it and it worked great. If you go to any best buy or car stereo place they will have most if not all your parts that you will need and also they can install it for you. But my suggestion is to try it first because I saved 70 dollars doing it my self.
