I had this same problem when i removed the radio to install a ipod jack. The problem is the radio, ac controls, and display is all attached to a pressure button in the rear of the radio.the button has a screw head and a black sleeve covering the rest of the button. when u put the radio back in make sure u have firm pressure when putting back the screws. it would help to have someone push while u tighten.Make sure u put back the side screw on the left side of the radio (a little hard to get to). the pressure button is also adjustable all u need is a phillips. IF THE SCREW IS NOT COMMPRESSED FAR ENOUGH YOU WILL NOT HAVE CONTROL OF THE RADIO,AC, AND DISPLAY

That's where a $5.00, 12 volt test light comes in handy. All you have to do then is touch tip on ends of fuses to see if they are good or not. No pulling fuses and no head scratching wondering which one it might be. If you have power on one side, but not the other, you found the blown fuse. It certainly is not uncommon to find the bad fuse, labeled wrong, or added in with something else that makes no sense at all.

If you have a 12v test light you can test each fuse in the fuse box. Connect the test light cable to a good ground. Turn ignition to on/run position and using the test light probe, touch one side of a fuse and then the other side. Test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it only lights on one side of a fuse then that fuse is blown. It says the amp rating on the fuse. Check all fuses, as there could be more than one fuse blown. Replace fuses with the same rating as the blown fuse. If you don't have a test light, you can get one at any auto parts store or even WalMart has them. Shouldn't be more than 4 or 5 dollars. Hope this helps . Good luck.
