dude, i had the same problem! , no worries my friend, easy fix! just open your side fuse panel which is at the passenger side and remove 20amp fuse which is yellow and start the vehicle without the fuse and after that put the fuse back in and start the vehicle again, should have sound now and display.

Worked great for me. There are four yellow 20 amp fuses on the side fuse panel on the passenger side inside. I took out the one marked “radio”. Remove the fuse. Start the car without the fuse. Shut it off. Reinstall the fuse. Restart the car. Wolla! Radio and technology on. Saved me $125.00 at the dealer!
