Default Radio dead, after battery died, and PCM2 fuse blew

2001 SL-1, battery drained...head lights left on.

Tried to jump start, but no go, cranked too slow I guess.

Replaced battery, would crank, but not fire up.

Turned out the PCM2 fuse blew, probably during the jump start.

PCM2 Fuse replaced, Saturn has been running for a week now, but no signs of life from the OEM radio.

Is there another fuse in the dash or on the radio somewhere? Any ideas?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Yes.

Check the in car fuse block. Body and/or chime fuse.

Third gens are different. No chime fuse and body fuse does not affect radio.

On third gens the fuses to check are Radio (Ign) and Radio (Bat). Both of these are located in the instrument panel fuse block.
