Hi my name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist with this today.In some cases I may need more info to assist better.I apologize for any delay.

If this only occurred after the radio was removed and reinstalled, remove the radio again and check the connections at the radio to make sure they are all plugged in properly and that no wires pulled out of the connections and no wires are found to be shorted.Look around the area the radio pushes in and seats into to make sure no other wiring from another component was bumped loose or damaged in any way .

If all of this is o.k. try a jump start just to see if the battery may have died/became weak while you were working on it as this can sometimes occur.If this was all already checked into or tried let me know.
