jumped my car, no power now

So my car died the other night, got it jumped and now my headunit isn't getting power. I checked the fuse that's in the unit and their still good. Pulled a couple fuses at the panel and their good as well. Any thoughts of what's going on?

What happened to cause the car to die? Did you check for a short in a wire behind the radio?

Not sure what caused it, radio worked for about 5 min then my car stalled(while moving) and no radio. I looked behind it, everything seems intact.

I'd check the wiring. Is the factory wiring harness still there, or was another one spliced on by you or another owner?

Checked all the connections from the headunit to the factory harness was all good. Took my battery off for 30 sec, hooked back up and its working.
