Electronics won't turn on

Asked by May 17, 2016 at 08:48 PM about the 2000 Mitsubishi Galant ES

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So one day while I was still working as a delivery
boy, got bored because we had nothing to do, so I
started tinkering with my aftermarket stereo,
everything worked properly it turned on & off etc
but the one thing it didn't work was the actual radio
it'd just be static so I couldn't listen to FM or AM,
so I'm that type of guy who likes to take things
apart and finding out how they work, so I started to
take out the stereo, tried figuring out what cables
were what, and when I figured out why the stereo
wasn't working it was because the actual radio
cable was not connected to the stereo, but by the
time I figured it out it was just a matter of putting
everything back to its original place but at that time
it started getting busy at my job so I didn't have
time to put everything back so I was literally
delivering with my stereo hanging out, so it got to
this one point where I went back to my car after
giving the food to the customer, and decided to just
put everything back so I didn't have to see it
dangling anymore, and half way into it I feel a small
electricusion on my fingers (I had the car fully on)
and I was hoping I didn't mess anything up, turns
out when I finished putting everything together my
stereo wouldn't turn on not only that but my
switches to lock and unlock all the doors stopped
working to so at that moment I knew the stereo had
a 50/50 of still working, but I knew some wire had
gotten fried cause of the unlock & lock button not
working either, so after 10mn of typing I'm asking
you guys, do you know what's wrong with my car?
Or do you know a solution plz let me know

Start by checking all of your fuses. Also, inspect the wires going to the radio and see if they are melted. You clearly shorted some wires and that is why you felt the tingling on your hand. Hopefully, you didn't do any permanent damage.
