Thank you for using Just Answer my name is Carl and I will help with your question.

I would suggest to check the fuses. Car radios have two power feeds one is a red wire which is connected to the ignition of the car and this wire is what allows the radio to turn on and work. The second power lead is a yellow wire this is connected to the battery it is a permanent 12v feed to keep the radios memory alive with time and radio presets.

I think there is a problem with the yellow wire, it could be it has just blown a fuse.
