Hi there,
This does sound like a fuse has blown.
The fuses are located in the engine bay compartment.
Check the diagram for the appropriate fuses, and check those fuses for continuity or fit replacements.
Let me know if successful.

Can u tell me what fuse I have to get and from where?

It's Mazda Cx7 2011.

Can I change it on my own?

I think the fuse box is located next to steering wheel

Mazda Mechanic: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 3 years ago
Hi, yes the fuse box is indeed located next the steering wheel, and the is no dedicated fuse for the stereo - several of the fuses are associated with various circuits, so you should check all fuses.
