Check your fuses. Wiring is like plumbing.  Follow the feed.  Need a lot more information but just plug it back in if it's a harness.  It's it's just spliced together then you have to check each wire by disconnecting and rewiring properly.  Rewire while car is off turning to Acc after each wire.  Start with power, ground, pow ant, to verify connectivity.  Once power is on start with speaker wires.

Radio quit working

Sounds like someone shorted the need to look into the entire butcher job and see what wires were touched. Disconnect everything the butcher did and then see if your battery is still drainning power.

Sounds like you have something pulling the battery down. Is the radio still factory? If not my first suspect is an after market radio. If all is still factory, no radio, no alarm system, no back seat chargers, dvd players. Your alternator may be the cause, alternators have diodes that can cause a "leak" or a small draw on the battery. If you have a volt/amp meter you may be able find this. If not take the car to auto parts store where they can remove the positive cable and read the amp pull, in between the battery post and the cable end. You will have a very small amount due to the radio clock. but if your reading is in the 1 - 3 amps that is too much and causing the batt. to go dead after 3 days. Disconnect the largest wire on the alt. and read the amps again, if it has gone down and reads normal, that is the alternator diodes leaking, and shes bad. Hope this fixya up.

Get a multimeter then disconnect the positive side of the battery. Measure the amp(current) between the terminal you just disconnected and the positive battery while the car is off. and have someone get a tweezer and pull out one at a time each fuse in the fuse box. When the amp goes down on the multimeter then you found out where in your car there is a short. Note the fuse you pulled out in your car manual. It could be radio shorting, domelight shorting. Sometimes kids drop pennys or coins in the radio disk slots shorting the radio or amplifier in the car is always on.

Radio not accepting manufactur code.

If it is the correct code, you may have entered it a few times & locked the system. Either disconnect the battery & wait a minute & reconnect & retry, or pull the radio fuse & retry after waiting a minute & reinstalling.

It sounds to me like a resistor is fried in the radio. You could buy an after market stereo or the one on ebay, it's your choice as to which route you go. It would cost you more money to fix this problem that to just buy the one on ebay. If it comes with a legit. warranty, then it's definetly worth it. I hope this solution helped. Please rate. Thanks.
