I accidentally grounded my 12v constant wire behind my radio and now I have no power to the wiring harness. There are no shorts and no blown fuses that I can find. Maybe I'm missing something?

Customer: It's consistent
JA: What is the model/year of your Pontiac?
Customer: 05 grand am se
JA: Are you fixing your Grand Am yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Yes, I've tested for shorts in the harness and for blown fuses
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No thank you

Have you checked all fuses? when the wire was grounded it will blow the fuse instantly just a matter of finding it.
