Have you tried changing the fuse anyway?

When I test stuff like that I use my multi meter. Test both sides of the fuse for voltage. They don't always "look" blown

No no to actually test a fuse u take it out and check for ohms or continuity it should read zero ohms if its open itll read infinite resistance. But with clear plastic its obvious if it will be blowwn without even using a meter

If the fuses are fine I suspect a radio code issue. How long have you owned the truck. Is it the factory radio?
