Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the radio does not come on at all then it has either lost a power or ground or has failed internally. If fuses are good and there are no other issues then odds are the problem is in the radio itself and it will need to be replaced or sent out for repair.

What year and model is the vehicle?

Have fuses been checked?
