Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!If the radio won't turn on then the problem either has to be an internal failure or a loss of power or ground to it. You could have a blown fuse, wiring or connection issue preventing the radio from turning on, and it's very possible that you got a bad replacement radio.Did you see this radio work in another vehicle?Have the power and ground feeds been tested?
