Default Need help with audio!!

Ok guys I need some help with somethin. Last night I was puttin in my CD player into my new Bonneville and I think I mad a Boo-Boo When I took the stock radio out of the car I used pliers to pull the plastic wire holding thing out of the back of the stock radio. When I did this the back of it arched with electricity and I didnt think anything about it. When I put in the new CD player I didnt get any power to it and when I put the stock one in to test it I didnt get any response either. I think I may have blown a fuse somewhere, but all of them look fine. Perhaps there is an in-line fuse somewhere, but I dont know. Any help would be appreciated. Also the power antennae isnt working. Thanks amigos. Please help.

Did you actually remove the fuses to look at them? If they don't look bad you can always use a DVOM to check the resistance. If it comes up as "out of limits" or infinite, then the fuse is shot.

By the way, put the year and model of your car in your sig. It helps out a lot with diagnosis.

On the wiring harness check the yellow (constant 12v) for power, and the red (acc 12v) with the ignition on, if one of them is not reading power, you have a blown fuse. You may have a fuse box under the hood as well, not sure.

Sounds like a bad fuse to me. Next time whenever doing electrical work disconnect the negative terminal, this way you'll avoid blowing fuses or getting shocked.

Sounds like you blew a fuse in the drivers side fuse panel under the steering wheel above your feet. The fuse may be labeled radio, however you might have blown the accessory power-on fuse. Either of the two would prevent the radio from turning on.

Don't feel bad, it happens to the best of us
