Much like most of you that have experienced the stereo going dead and searching for the reason I have found the secret fuse that is related to the stereo. Originally I could not find the reason why my stereo was not working and I replaced the 30amp under the dash even though it wasn't blown. Under the hood in the fuse box to the left you will see 2 double fuses in a yellow clip there are 2 10amp and in a black clip there are a 15amp and a 20amp. In the manual it says that these are spares when in fact they are not. I opened up the black clip and inside the 20amp was blown. Once I replaced it I instantly had my stereo back.
