Radio Short... No Tpms

so my radio (Pioneer AVHP-4300DVD) has been in for a while now, but i was trying to wire in the reverse camera.

i went to put the radio back in and i believe an exposed wire hit some metal in the back of the dash there.. radio goes black :(

now no radio and oddly no TPMS, car runs fine and everything else works, i hope its just a fuse (pulled a couple and they were still good)

didnt know if this happened to anyone or if you have any suggestions. thanks.

Yes, radio fuse also supplies RCDLR so your remotes probably don't work either. Always disconnect battery before doing any electrical work.

i know i know the thing is i did unplug the battery, it took me a few times to wire it in and i had disconnected it probably four times that day.. the one time i didnt... boom!

i learned my lesson, i ALWAYS pull it for everything now.
