i had put back my sock head unit until i could get a DIN mount cause it annoyed me to look at an empty space. but then I went to turn on my radio yesterday and nothing happened. I checked the fuse and it wasnt burnt so i checked the wires behind the unit and they were all connected. there must be power going through something becuase the unit is illuminated, but i have no clue what is wrong. any help would be very much appreciated.
thanks

well if the fuse was in and no unit was plugged in, the LIVE wires prob. hit somehing metal and shorted the fuse, and blew that. Thus the reason for a fuse... Never install or remove a stereo or any electronics witout removing the items fuse at the least, if not the battery cable. Safety first 8)

The stock head unit has 2 connectors that are very similar in appearance. Perhaps these were reversed when you tried to attach.

Im just guessing, but your system may need to reset, and the factory code put in to enable the radio to display on the SID again. Simply disconnecting the negative terminal will reset the system.
