2008 Ford Focus aftermarket stereo

Hey there new to the site have a question I'm hoping to get some help with.

Yesterday I tried installing a aftermarket stereo which was replacing the stock now I have all the harness leads connected correctly and quadruple checked but I am not getting anything no power.
Installing an Alpine ILX-007 (best stereo I've ever bought)

Where did the radio come from? check out crutchfield.com, they will be able to help you out.

If you have the right harness do you have it wired correctly?

Ahh ok, and it fits in your focus?

So then the only left would be to look over all your wiring to make sure you have everything spliced together correctly and is making a good connection. Other than that I don't know.
