You have a short along that circuit, recheck the other wiring. You will need to get a shop manual to know which wire will match up with the new head unit, or ask a local car audio installer.


And don't use any fuse other than the value recommended for that circuit. Doing so may very well start a fire. Find and fix the problem first. If you are not capable, then take it to a reputable shop as "Tom" suggested.
