I've hooked up all the wiring and everything correctly but I believe there is a code or something to bypass because the car will not let me power up the radio. There's a blinking red light at the power harness when I turn the car on but nothing else

Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing less. If you are talking about the orange lines , that is the fiber optic system. That only affects the sound. Have you checked the fuses to make sure you did not blow a fuse ? What kind of radio did you install ?
