Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If the radio will not turn on it has either lost a power or ground or has failed.

The first thing that needs to be done is make sure the gauges 1, rad 1, and acc fuses are all good.

If the fuses are good then the next step will be to remove the radio and test the powers and grounds using a test light. If the power and ground feeds are all present then the radio can be condemned. If the fuses are not blown then odds are the issue is in the radio itself.
