There is a small "inline" fuse on a separate wire to your radio. This is so that there is power on always to keep all your preset stations. Also check behind the radio and make sure the antenna connection hasn't vibrated loose. You didn't say if the lights on the radio were on or off or if the speakers crackled. In your searching, could you have inadvertantly jarred the main radio connection loose?

AnswerTry checking the fuses under the hood. AnswerSome aftermarket radios also have an internal fuse. However don't ever open a CD player as it voids the warranty. If you have checked the above fuses (fusebox under dash, under hood, and inline fuse) take it to a repair shop AnswerMost newer head units have a fuse in the back of it where your antenna, remote, ignition and other wires are plugged in. if that fuse is still good, you may have fried your head unit. Before taking your radio to a repair shop, make sure it's plugged in properly and the wires are good, my remote and ignition wires were shorted to ground and the fuse kept blowing, what happened was they weren't properly connected back to my unit
