check the fuses under the dash. it's one of those...
i dont think the radio wires bother the fusible links... ive blown the fuses millions of times, but it never blew a link...

2. Find a good fuse of similar amp rating
3. swap the good fuse over to the bad socket
4. try to start car.
If it doesn't start, the good one your pulled may be required too, so try using a different "good" one.
Beyond that, it's difficult to really help you cause I can't see the fuse panel. Just cause some fuse powers the radio doesn't mean it also doesn't power something else that's required for the engine to run.
Does it even crank? If not you probably blew the fuseable link that supplies the starter solenoid - that circuit isn't fused at the panel anyway. If that's the case, you'll have to replace the link, or "jumper" it with a bit of wire. That would actually make sense because many "aftermarket" radio installations steal power from the ignition circuit under the dash - which is unfused. So if you grounded that bad boy - you roasted the link.
