Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

Radios are sensitive to voltage spikes and proper charge, jump start and battery disconnect procedures. It isn't uncommon for them to fail in these cases. If the radio isn't working it's either because it has lost a power or ground feed or has failed internally.

If fuses are good then the next thing you can try is a battery disconnect. It's possible that the radio is locked up electronically and could come back with a power cycle.

If that doesn't help then the radio will need to be removed and it's power and ground feeds tested. If they are present but the radio does not work then it will need to be replaced.
