Default Help SOS - Radio screen blank!

Hey all,
I was starting to do some pre-wire for the system I plan to install on my (8.4A - No Alpine). I was tapping the speaker level wires so I could add a clean sweep and realized I should disconnect the battery to be safe.

So I did, tapped the lines etc, re-connected and no screen at all. There has to be a fuse or something I messed up, the stereo was working just fine minutes before. I found no fuse for Radio in the manual.

I tried jiggling all the wires in to the harness that plugs in to the radio, I disconnected where I tapped the speaker levels, triple checked that what I did tap was in fact the speaker wires. Not sure where else to go other than the dealer.

What could have happened?

Update - Resoloved. I found that the radio has a fuse separate of the entire system. It's a 20A fuse you have to follow the wire running from the battery and it's in a protective rubber casing.
Thanks

So far its not too bad. I had already tapped the front channel and ran it to a nice Audio Control LC2i which I put under the drivers seat so I could run a sub, so I just had to tap the rear channel and ran that to under the seat as well. Now I have front/rear sent in to the JL Clean Sweep.

I already had power and ground under the seat as well for the LC2i. Now I need to run speaker wires from all 4 doors so I can run aftermarket speakers and an amp and get rid of running them off the crappy head unit power.

I've been doing it in phases since I have had a crazy work schedule. Fingers crossed she turns out good!
