Default fuse?

I was installing an mp3 player for my 97 bonneville and somehow I managed to screw up my factory stereo and the climate controls. As far as I can tell neither of them is getting any power, which I would think meant a bad fuse, but none of the fuses which are supposed to be for AC or Radio seem to have burned out. It doesn't seem to have affected any other system on the car, it runs fine, everything lights up as far as i can tell. Any idea what might be wrong?

Check all the fuses. I don't have a lot of faith in the diagram after I installed my stereo. I lost my dash lights, but everything else worked fine. I checked the dash light fuse, it was fine. I then pulled all the fuses one by one, and the Radio fuse was blown. But the radio worked.

Bus fuses (I think that'* the brand name) come in a kit now with a fuse puller/tester that would aid in this process.

oh thank god, that worked.

of course it had to be the very last fuse, but at least I didn't have to replace the stereo and the climate control.

Thanks a lot

Sorry, had to laugh (tired I guess). My mind immediately went to "Well, duh, why would you keep looking..."

Glad it worked out tho. This also reminds me: You think they could have made the fuses any harder to work with? I'm not as young and flexible as I used to be...
