Angry Radio Wont Power On Help!!~!!!!!

Ok so i tried to install an aftermarket stereo in an 06 forenza and when i tested it and turned it on, with the aftermarket stereo hooked up nothing happend......although other lights in the dash DID light up. I then decided to test and see if the OEM stereo would work so I hooked it back up and it wont power on either.....I have no idea what i did........can someone give me some help or suggestions.......maybe I blew a fuse?? or something.....i dont know im in a mess.......also where is the location of the fusebox in the forenza?? Other than the one thats in the engine compartment.......is there another one inside the car, behind a kick panel or something???? PELASE HELP.

I'm not good with headunit installs but is there the a blue wire somewhere? I know you have to hook one up to any external amps for them to power on so maybe theres one for the h/u as well?

Theres a fuse panel, I'm pretty sure...when you open up the driver door and just down to the side of the steering wheel...or at least theres a panel that opens there with something.

yea It was the fuse, i think the people who sent me my harness i got from ebay, didnt wire it correctly.....it was missing a yellow wire(battery/12v memory) wire i think it was supposed to have that anyway. So when i powered it up theres a good chance some of the other connections may have been wrong as far as the harness goes, and blew the fuse......ill never buy from that ebay store again ill tell you that much.

The price sounds about right. You may want to check the radios fuse. Could be the problem, but the dealer might of already checked
