sounds like you blew the fuse. In fith gens, the stereo, cig lighter, and clock run off one fuse. It shouldent of shorted, because BEFORE yourt borther pulled the amp, he should have disconnected the (+) pole from the batt.
Only other thing I can think of is the (+) and (-) speaker or co-ax cables touched, or they touched chasis ground. That would immediatly and irreparibly blow the internal amp in the deck.
Thank you sir. I'll replace that fuse and see if that's what it is.
And I'm sure he disconnected the + terminal before taking all his stuff out, even I know to disconnect the + terminal before doing anything.
And I suck with electronics.
Although I did install my rev/speed meter.
Thank you for the quick reply!
