Default 03 Ion no power to radio

i put a new radio in my moms car and after a couple weeks it stopped working. i put the same one in my truck so i pulled her head unit out and put it in my truck and it didnt work so i put my working radio in her car and it still didnt work. i put a new radio in her car went over all the connections and they are correct and connected. still nothing. i pulled both the radio fuses inside the car and they are both good. put a volt meter to the 12v+ line and nothing same with the acc line. so with fuses good and connections good but no power to the 12v+ what could it be?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you checked the correct fuses then you have an open in the wiring from the fuse box to the radio plug. Just where will be up to you to find.

How did you check fuses? Did you just look at them, or use the meter?

Check for inline fuses in the yellow and red wires coming from the aftermarket radio.
