Question about 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I jump started my truck and the radio no longer works. I changed both the RADIO and RADIO AMP fuses under the hood, and still nothing. Is there another fuse somewhere (already checked the door jam)? Could I have fried the radio by jumping it even though the fuses weren't blown?
Yes and fuses are tricky some don't look blown and they r, and some look blown and r not But to check the radio itself put a volt meter to the wiring connection on back of unit

I think the body control module is shorting out . The body control module can be over heating internally then shorted out. All the parts you mention have a circuit running to the body control module. I would have the vehicle checked for codes at a repair shop , then check the wiring to the body control module.

There is a panel on the passengers side of the car, I pulled the fuse used for OnStar because I dont use it. I didn see any labling on mine but it was the fuse located second from the top on the left side, but you have to be looking at it side ways because of the way the fuse box is orientated.
And then put it in the socket all the way to the right second from the bottom, again looking at it sideways. NOTE: My car is a 2006 Malibu LT

One of the fuses is located in the fuse panel under the dash. It may also have another in-line filter on the power wire going to the radio
