Dashboard and Radio won't work

Replaced my CD player and after hooking everything back up, radio won't come on and dash is dead. Hoping it is a blown fuse, but when I look at my fuse chart in the owners manual it does not correspond to my cabin fuses in my car.
Also, when I plugged the radio up, it got really hot, so I might have crossed some of the lower switches up (pisses me off they use the same connector and no labels and same colored wiring).

Has anyone else had this issue and does anyone have a cabin fuse chart for an 07 DB9?

Just an FYI for anyone attempting to pull your CD player, the harness is a good 3" short for some of the connectors, so it is a PIA to disconnect and connect some of the switches.

It was a double whammy, CRM was bad and A/C not plugged in. Got my CRM and the lights in the center console and lights on the dash worked, but RPM and gauges were still dead. So I took the center console back apart and low and behold I had forgotten to plug the stupid A/C plugs in, did that and now everything works.
