I had the same problem in my 1988 celebrity. All I had to do was look at all the fuses under the steering wheel and replace the burned out fuse that controled the radio. I've discovered that the radio is not only controlled by its own fuse, it also gets power via the courtesy lights fuse. Either one can kill a radio. If the radio is aftermarket, check its own inline fuse if it came with one. Don't forget the ground(s). Some require both the black (negative) wire, AND the chassis to complete its ground.
