to create a spark you must have had power connected somewhere. Did you have your radio turned on when you connected? if yes you may have blown the amp in the radio. If no then you have other issues with wiring and possible damage. It's one of those instances where I'd need to be there to diagnose it. Start by double checking the stereo is working, check its wiring is correct try each speaker connection in turn. If the stereo works and all the outputs work then double check the amps wiring and try a normal speaker connected to it. You must get the picture by now, you need to identify the source of the fault. to help you better I'd need a wiring diagram.
As you mentioned that " CD player does not turn on".By this do you mean to say that there is no power to the radio.Or there is power to the radio but nothing is getting started on radio/stereo unit.
Also is it after market radio unit or is a factory installed company radio.In some cases its noticed that radio does get started till the exact radio code is inserted.In that case you can get the radio codes from the local dodge car dealer.But if its not a radio code problem,but the power related problem then the radio connections has to be checked.Also some after market radio/stereo units are not compatible with car.So that is also possible.
Get this possibilities confirmed.So this will help to retrieve the exact cause of the problem.Thanks.Helpmech.

I have come to find out that in the 90's auto makers started installing factory amplifiers in their cars so they could use low wattage stereos in the dash. It's usually a blue wire off the stereo that runs the amp, maybe it couldve become disconnected? I also know that even if you put in an after market stereo, this wire must be hooked up or you'll get no sound from the speakers. hope this helps.
If you buy another factory radio it'll need the unlock code to work with your factory alarm system. But if you go with an after market radio it'll work just fine, your alarm will just think there's no radio installed.
