Sounds like you cut a ground or power wire when installing the new radio. Go back over your wiring and also look for any possible shorts from your new connections to ground or power. Also, it is possible you partially unplugged a connector while working in the area. Make sure all plugs are completely seated.

Changing a radio in a newer vehicle is tricky as everything runs through it. Not a job for a do it yourselfer. I was told this by a friend who's a mechanic.
