Fred go back and thoroughly check out EVERYTHING that was touched during
the stereo installation!
It was working fine before you did that.  You may have tapped power off a
line and inadvertently disconnected a computer sensor.  You might have
internally broken a wire that supplied power to a system.  The radio may be
drawing power from a line that is voltage dependent.  Check, check, recheck
and recheck everything you did.  If necessary remove the radio/stereo
installation and figure it out that way.  I guarantee that somewhere in
there you hooked something up incorrectly.
