So you hooked the amp up to your head unit and now your head unit wont turn on? does the amp turn on? check all of your fuses for a blown fuse

you're definitely covered by fuses. 10 amp minifuse in the back of the unit, inline fuses everywhere, also keep in mind that pioneers have a firmware reset feature that has to be pushed after they are first powered up during install. So maybe adding an amp is calling for that procedure.
