Radio Problems

It;s been awhile since i posted anything but lately i been trying to get rid of pops, and metal sounding things out so its a nice ride. As this begun my battery has been dying lately so my dead said he would leave the charger on the battery over night for about an hour and half. I guess the charger didn't want to do that so instead it went ALL night and the battery ended up exploding.

As the next day came around we got the Jeep a new battery but the radio didn't work, the sub didn't work, nothing did but everything else in the car did.

I'm curious to know if any of you out there know what the problem is because we checked all of the fuses and the only thing left we can think of is the wiring that could have burnt up some where.

So if any of you could help me figure out what is wrong or if I'm totally forgetting to do something simple feel free to help out anytime... Thanks guys.

Might be an internal or external fuse in AMP and/or Headunit, factory or aftermarket?
First i would check was backside of HU, or on main wireing coming to HU

We checked the radio fuses underneath the steering column, and everything was ok, and we pulled the radio and didnt see anything odd. Is there anything else to check? The radio, speaker amp (aftermarket rocksford fosgate amp) and the subwoofer amp is not powered. We also looked at the subwoofer fuse and its still good.

Keep in mind it worked with the crummy battery, and now it doesnt work with the new one. I have a hard time believing there is an issue with when they hooked it up.

Try powering it up off of another vehicle or battery.... out of the vehicle if it works then you know its within the harness.

Hm, ok. Ill try my battery next. I just dont see how a new battery would make it fail. But, being that the battery was overcharged.. is it possible that it just targeted the radio? Doesnt make sense.

Hey guys, update on the radio, me and my dad checked to see if the amp and the sub were getting power and they were... But the only thing that isn't getting power is the radio itself to turn everything on... Does anyone know what could be wrong? As said we checked all of the fuses and they weren't burnt out. If anyone could help that would be fantastic. Thanks guys.
