Exclamation Radio Problems

Hey guys,
I tried to put a new head unit in my 2001 ford f250 and i got the head unit to turn on and I was tryin to connect the speakers up and then when I tried turning it back on it wouldnt, so i decided to just put the factory one back in. When I did this the factory one wont come on at all. I checked the fuse and it was blown. I put a new fuse in and still no luck. Any ideas what the problem could be??

Make sure you don't have a speaker wire shorted out

There is more than 1 fuse for the radio. Check both fuses. Doesn't matter if the antenna is hooked up or not, it isn't a ground. It will turn on with the antenna removed.
