Good/honest car stereo repair shops, (mobile preferred)

Sometimes there is a code which must be entered after power has been interrupted.
I assume it’s an anti theft thing so anyone who steals your stereo won’t be able to use it
if u got it from crutchfield call them - their customer service is great

Simple battery replacement then yeah I would look for the owner's manual or radio code card for the radio code.
Did the unit come with a remote?

Given that its aftermarket, probably just popped a fuse. Pull it out and check the main power wire.

"turn it off and back on again? You cant turn it off or on? Okay unplug it, and plug it back in. Did that work?"

This method works a surprising amount of times whenever a modern computer is involved. Still kind of surprised to see it work here though. Glad you got it solved.
