You blew the radio too. take it out and apply 12v directly to it and see if it powers up.

Amp fuse 30a keep blowing

You have possibly melted a couple of wires together along the radio circuit. Also the radio unit itself has 1 or more protection fuses actually inside the unit that have blown, usually at back of unit in little bay near the wire clusters.
Check your relays too, a blow out through jump starting can do all sorts of little burn-outs.

Replaced mega fuse now wont start

Putting reverse polarity to a battery will do more damage then blowing a fuse. Chances are you could have taken out the ECM and possibly the TCM

Hi I was jump starting my car and put the leads on the wrong terminals and now my radio won't work i must have damaged a component in the radio? Billy

I would check all the fuses first. Hopefully one of them blew. Not only will reversing the cables blow the radio, but it can blow all the computers given time. Good luck

Check the "Dome" Fuse in the fuse block next to the battery, also check the "cig/radio" Fuse left instrament panel, behind pop open door.
