radio has no power?

I was installing a amp in 98 exp and remote wire that was conctd to radio sparked while I was running it to amp, I thought i blew fuses and nope no blown fuse, I thought radio was blown so installed factory radio that worked two days ago, dont work either. Im not sure what else I can check I dont notice any other accessories that are not working. Thanks for your time.

There should be power at the constant 12v at the white/purple and power at the black/pink with the key on. The amplifier should have constant power at the light green/pink wire. Check all the grounds too.

Re: radio has no power?

What if they have power and what If they don't have power?
Is it possible to run power from something else to radio

Re: radio has no power?

If there's no power, I'd try to find the problem. Bypassing with a new wire would make it work but I'd be worried about where the problem is and what could happen later.

That white/purple should have power all the time. There's another fuse under the hood, in a smaller panel behind the main fuse panel. There's a fuse in there that's probably blown. Lookon page 138 in the owners manual for the location.

It was a fuse in the small box behind big one under hood. Wow! Thanks for your help!
