    I have done the same thing. My deck was fried. Generally you can smell the holes in the deck. If it stinks really bad then chances are that you fried the board. If no smell then check to see if the power wire still has power comeing out. Dont just check the fuse because wires can burn in the middle. Then reconect the power and ground to make sure that they are both firmly conected. You might have to shut off all power to the deck and maybe it will reset itself. Oh and one more thing. I have seen fuses that blow and dont even look like they are blown.....RARE BUT POSSIBLE Goodluck

Sony CDX GT200 does not work... is there a fuse in this radio? I cannot turn on the unit now. I just got my car back from the repair shop and they replaced my battery and alternator, but now my radio...

There is a fuse in the back of the stereo unit. Also trace the red wire from the stereo to where it's connected, and check the fuse for the circuit that the stereo is connected to.

My ignition barrel broke for my vauxhall corsa,been fixed but my sony gt200 cd/radio will not come on . will not play.usually when you clip the front face unit into place the system lights the moment...

your cd switch wire is not recieving any power. when you turn on your key it turns on the switch wire. the wire/contact on the ignition barrel may not have been connected properly. check the wiring and the barrel again
if this doesn't work connect the yellow and red wire at the back of the will work without the keys now

Sony CDX-GT200 wiring query

The ariel switch is for a power antenna to make it rise when you turn your stereo on. The orange wire is for your dimmer when you turn on your car lights. You do not need to hook either of these up.
