Have you checked the IOD fuse? Its under the hood and its poorly labeled (at least on my 2010) that the fuse is "spare" on the underside of the cover to the fuse box. It doesn't help that its housed in a funky plastic handle, that makes it easy to pull out, to help you think its a convient spare that Chrysler provided you.
When I pulled that IOD fuse (thinking it was spare) to replace my burnt out cigarette lighter fuse also. Then my radio didn't work. I pulled out the O.M. and soon learned the label on the underside of the fuse box cover was wrong, that it was the IOD fuse I had pulled out. The funky plastic handle is there for maintenance, to make it easier to pull the IOD fuse and air bag fuses for maintenance.
Once I replaced the fuse, the radio still did NOT come back, but I got an "IOD Fuse Out" message on the EVIC. I went back and realized the funky handle on the fuses is decieving, that the fuses weren't seated and I had to push down hard on the funky handle to seat the fuses. After that, all was well with the world again, radio worked fine.
Oh, IOD stands for something like Ignition Off Delivery, I probably remember wrong, but its the constant 12V supply to the car when its off, that the radio needs, I don't think its the main supply to the radio, but for some reason the radio won't turn on without it.
