Pioneer Head unit problems!!!

just recently installed the pioneer MVH 200ex and its only showing a display when the key is in accessory. Once I turn the car on itís just Audio. No warning message or anything. It still lights up but itís black. Install was on a 2001 xlt 4x4

Very strange. The power from the radio circuit should be exactly the same in both key positions. Did you get direct power and switched power from the stock harness? (I just installed a Pioneer deh-x8800bhs and using the stock harness it works perfectly)

Try a factory reset,there should be a small mini hole by power button. A small paper clip should work. Also check if Pioneer has help chat online.

Yeah that's what I thought. from what I can tell all the power wires are hooked up properly. I was doing research and read that maybe I need to install one the bypasses? but wasn't sure since this one doesn't have a CD port at all.
