not sure abt ur stereo but some equipment has a reverse polarity diode in it that will prevent damage. usually if this is blown, it continues to blow fuses until it is replaced. i have seen a couple cases where the diode went open but that was rare.
i would go into the stereo and see if are any visible signs of burning components near where the power comes into the unit. hopefully, it will be an easy fix.

Looks like my zx75 and yes there should be a fuse behind it. Mine survived having the battery hooked up in reverse and it took me 30 minutes to figure out what i had done. Just replace the inline fuse. Here is a pic of my 75.

Thanks

Now to get an inline fuse to replace the one that is blown....15 or 10 amp?

If I had removed the sticker looks like I would have seen the model #.

Again thanks for the help!

It has an inline fuse with 15AL250V marked on one end. Went to Auto Zone and they did not have it, they said the 250 volt is different than the ones they normally carry...the same at 3 other parts stores. Anyone know where I should look at next?

Thanks

if it turns out that the diameter is a little too big, try radio shack. they use a different diameter fuze in electronics. i ran into that with a backup camera. i don't recall the proper term. i found the ones for the backup camera at radio shack.

if the fuse brings it back to life, the reverse polarity diode did its job. if it blows again, that diode has probably shorted. ran into this quiet a bit back in the CB repair days. the ones that succeeded in buring that diode completely out usually were the ones that replaced a 2amp fuse with a 20. that diode can be very expensive; probably abt 25 cents. if someone else changes it, they will probably charge $7.5 labor.

Went to Radio Shack and Walmart but no luck. There are a couple of other stores/distributors in the area so I will check with them tomorrow and see what I can find. Everyone keeps telling me they have never seen a 30 mm fuse at 15 amps and 250 volts with the ends dimpled. I am also going to search the web and see what I can find for long term needs. Just took the trailer back to storage after cleaning and doing the storm door modification, TV install, and trying to blow it up by hooking the battery up backwards. HC

If you can not find to proper fuse to fit, then just buy an in-line fuse kit at your Radio Shack and change the one at the back of your stereo....
