I was installing an aftermarket radio to replace my old aftermarket radio that is over 10 years old. Connected the wires and everything was looking good, except I had no audio. So I pulled the radio out and a flash of sparks happened and no more radio. The fuses weren’t blown and everything looked okay. What could be the problem?

Apart from a fuse supplying power to set , there is often a fuse in the set also . Checked both ?

Is the stereo wires hooked up to the stock wires for the original stereo?

Check to see if any of the pins came loose on the molex connectors.

Check for burnt smell from the stereo. You might have fried something. Easiest way to make sure your stereo is fine us to take it out tie the red and yellow wires together put um to a 12v source like your truck battery and ground the black wire. If it does not turn on and your stereo fuse on the stereo is fine then you fried it. I know this is an old post but it may still help someone.
