Stereo Trouble, Help Please!

I have a 2001 Ford Windstar SEL. Yesterday while I was at work my husband decided he was going to put a new stereo in it.
Well, all he said he did was unplug the wiring harness and plug it in to the new stereo. Now neither my alarm or my stereo will work. My drivers side window wouldnt work either. He found 1 bad fuse, and it was for the window.
Anyone have any ideas how to fix this? Is there a reset button or something?

I would suspect a connector accidently pulled loose during the job, unless there are other fuses blown. So, pick up your rolling pin and stand over him while he removes the new radio and looks inside the dash to see what, if anything, might not be connected. The reason you stand over him is because (and being a guy I've done this) otherwise unless you're watching he'll look inside the dash, find the connector he pulled loose, and then say, "I don't know Honey; I didn't find ANYTHING wrong, but now everything's working fine!".

Smile Take it to a PRO

Make him admit that HE screwed it up.

Then make HIM take it to a REAL TECH to fix the problem.

Increasingly, modern automobiles, require the repair be made by an experienced AND QUALIFIED Automotive Technician to repair them.

That is NOT to say that a really savvy "shade tree mechanic" cannot fix many problems.

Sometimes yas has to bite the bullet AND ADMIT that you or they just do not have what it takes to complete a repair.

I have spent hundreds of dollars and wasted many HARD AND FRUSTRATING HOURS TRYING TO FIX IT MYSELF, when I could have saved hundreds of dollars and hundreds of hours by taking it to a SPECIALIST.

Do yourself a favor and get professional help.

Ask friends and family for a reference to someone that they trust, who has not ripped them off and treated them fairly.
