Hi,we have many faults with the radio/a/c panel face plate, you can try disconnecting both battery cables and touch cables together for 30 seconds, this is called a capacitor drain essentially will clear all computer memories ,kind of like a hard reboot of the computer system,if this does not work you most likely will need a new face plate but sometimes they come back to life(let's hope so)the face plate is about $300-350 if needed,thanks
