did you use a wiring harness? also try plugging something into the 12v accessory/ cigarette lighter and see if that turns on. sometimes the cigarette lighter and radio are on the same fuse

go to the fuse panel, use a test light. one end goes to a ground, the other end should touch the small little metal parts on the top of the fuse. make sure you have the car on, with what ever your testing the fuse for also on. if only one side lights up then you have a blown fuse. if they both light up its not the fuse, its either wires after the fuse, or the component you are trying to use not working. if neither side lights up then its a problem in the wires before the fuse, or your component isnt turned on. if you dont have a test light, remove the fuse and look at it. if the wire inside is not complete, or the fuse looks like there is burning on it, then you have a blown fuse
