It may be the connector behind the lower drivers seat trim (the one with the switches), this works loose sometimes... Common fault
Just unplug and re-connect it, should solve your prob... Worth a try anyway eh?

This could be connected to the other issues...
If not then the permanent live to the head unit is either wired wrong, not present or a fuse out !! Good luck !!
