Of course there's fuses. Check under the hood, and under the dash. On the 07 and greater trucks there are two fuse boxes but I dunno about yours. Did you get any rounds off at the idiot?

take a voltage meter to the wires connecting to the stereo and see if you get 12V. Maybe you have a broken circuit in the wire going to the stereo.

alright another option to try, hopefully more people will read this post because it might come in handy for someone.

Recently I bought and installed a dakota digital fan controller for my truck. On the controller you have to have a constant 12v power source but it cant come from the same power soucre/ hookup as your fan. Which is the battery for me. So I pulled out my radio so I could just tap into the constant 12v wire for the stero. I took out all the screws and pulled the trim off then unhooked the wires behind it for the clock, and 4hi and 4low, so I wouldnt accidently break it while it was hanging there. Not to metion that I have the fan controller mounted on the top of the cap near the map lights. That was the last wire to hook up to the fan controller so I taped into the wire and turned the key on the ACC position and nothing happened. Turned it to the on postion and nothing happend. So I got a volt meter and check the wire and there was nothing. So I plugged in the stero real quick to see if that would work and got nothing. Checked all the fuses one by one and everyone was fine. Go to find out after two hours of getting mad and trying to figure out what I did, that the constant hot for the radio somehow runs though the bottom of the trim piece then to the radio. I guess its because the clock which I never pay attention to keeps its brain charged. You could never see it ethier because when you pull the radio out it looks like the harness runs somewhere else. And alot of cars and trucks I see, it doesnt matter because both wires go to one pin on the connector so it transfers current with the connector pluged in or unplug. Just a heads up for anyone who is testing something without the bottom trim piece not plugged in.
