Battery died, Radio volume button does nothing (I'm aware of code)

After my car battery died, I put the code in for the navi, and then hit the power button on the radio expecting it to ask for the code on the dash display. Nothing comes up. The anti-theft light does blink though. After searching the site I found someone with a TL had the same problem, and it was suggested to look at some fuses. Can someone point me to the correct fuse(s) to check?

Thanks,

Phil

Right, I am aware of that. Usually when you hit the power button on the radio it asks for the code up where the clock is. When I hit the power button on the radio, nothing happens. When I hit every other button on the radio, nothing happens. It does not ask for a code. I am not looking in the wrong place. It just isn't doing anything.

undo the battery againand see if that resets it and asks you for the code.

If it still doesn't work, try the following:
radio off, turn key to acc, press buttons 1 and 6 simultaneously, then turn radio on, key in code right away.

Tired both of these. No dice. Radio still acts like power button doesn't exist. It does however eject CD's.

More detail on what I did so it is not further questioned:

Removed negative terminal.
Cleaned it up with a wire brush while i was in there.
Put it back on.
Put in navi code
tried to hit power on radio. Nothing happened.
Tried hhrdx08's suggestion. Again, not even an acknowledgement that the power button works.

I'm almost starting to think the power button is broken.

I can't find a fuse box diagram online for the car to save my life. Is there any chance someone could give me the fuse number/location of the radio fuse or fuses?

Thanks,

Phil
