Hello, my name is ***** ***** I'm here to help get your problem solved.

Check fuse 26 and fuse 24 on interior fuse box, these are both for the radio. One of them have probably shorted out. If you are installing a aftermarket radio it might be a good idea to pull radio out and tape wires better so they don't short again in future. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.

would I have to replace the fuse and how would I know if it shorted?

Yes you would have to replace fuse and if you remove fuse you will be able to see if the link is burned out. Here is a picture that shows a good fuse vs a blown fuse. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
