  1. just bought a 87 wrangler, removed the old radio(looked like a birds nest of wires) wired up new radio, new radio came on for abou 6 seconds then went out. Now no power to the red wire. Fuse under dash good. Tested radio, its good. But when wiring radio back up it wont work….help. Is there possibly another fuse or have I done something wrong?
