Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The problem could be the radio itself or a loss of power or ground to it. The first step will definitely be to check the fuse, if ok then the radio would need to be removed to test it's power and ground feeds before condemning it.

There are three fuses in the box in the dash that are in question. You'll need to either replace them with known good fuses, look at them visually to see if they are burnt, or they can be tested with an ohm meter. The fuses you need to look at are 7.5a MODULE 1, 10 a CLOCK, and 15a AUDIO.
