Kalamykid :

Do you have the factory radio in the truck?

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

Not anymore

Kalamykid :

Did you check the fuse on the back of the aftermarket radio?

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

Is there another power source

Kalamykid :

There should be two fuses one on the red wire and one on the orange wire

Are you installing a radio in the truck or did the one that is in it stop working?

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

Yes,not burnt out

The new was working and then my battery died

After having hatch up

Not getting any power

Not getting power in radio or amp

Yes, after I jump started it

Kalamykid :

And the radio did not come back on after the truck was started?

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

No, it didn't

Could something else be burnt out

Kalamykid :

I would have to know what radio you installed and how you installed it to be able to tell you what is wrong.

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

It's a Pioneer CD player

Kalamykid :

What model and did you use an install kit or did you cut the end off for the old radio and wire it straight to the new radio?

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

MOSFET 50, used install kit

Kalamykid :

Do you have a test light to do some testing with?

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

Yes

Pull the radio out and connect the clip to your test light to a good ground.

JACUSTOMER-eahkbn99- :

Ok,what else

Have to go to work now

Kalamykid :

Then see if you are getting power to the red wire and the orange wire at the radio.
