Test the plugs for Constant +12 and switched ignition +12, and check your ground. If something connected the ignition and battery leads together at the deck it could cause some odd things to happen.

Ive put in LOTS of decks and Ive gotten caught with the blown fuse confusion more than a few times. Half the time its the simplest things that take the longest to figure out. Just make sure when you hook up an amp you use the BLUE/WHITE and not the bolid BLUE. Thats caused some embarassment :P
