Check all your fuses in the car. If they are good then you might have burned your radio

Sounds like the wire caused the radio fuse to blow. I would check the fuse first, if it is still good, then the head unit may have shorted out which would not be good.

And some aftermarket radios have a fuse either inline in the wiring harness, or actually on the back of the chassis, check that as well
