the aux power for the head unit has its own fuse, if i remember correctly its only a 5 AMP. look in your owners manual and find which one is for it, should be like Radio (Start/ACC)...something along those line. Chances are its blown

That would do it. Don't go bumping up the amp value either. It should operate just fine with a 7.5 amp fuse in there.
