Question about 2001 Ford Escape
Pulled radio to connect XM direct connect to antena. When radio was put back in, radio will not work. Not getting power- not even clock on radio works. Test electrical lines on radio connector, car is sending power to radio, but radio will not power on. Tried pulling fuse as well as disconencitng battery to see if it would re-set radio. No Luck.
There are 3 fuses in the interior fuse panel that feeds radio.
no. 11(10amp) is ignition switch power to the radio it comes into radio on the TN/LB wire.
no. 27 (10amp) is hot at all times and comes in on OG/LG wire.
no. 12 (5amp) is hot in run or accessory and comes in on YE/BK wire.
Check these with 12V test light at fuse and at radio connector.

Check with Ford to see if there is a reset because of losing power. You may have to have them do a reset code. I've had bad luck with XM Direct Connect; the older XM radios had a stronger FM modulator that didn't require you to pull the radio.
