an FYI .
cleaning battery terminal and charger clip to cable popped off,power to car lost for 2 secs so on re connect no radio, checked the 10 and 12 fuses as mentioned and nope.. but on pulling to check all, soon as I pulled 49 (5amp) at bottom radio came alive. so hope its of use.

Wait - removing a 5A fuse resulted in the radio starting to work again...? 🤔

either that or there just needed enough time for the BCM to go through the checklist after loosing power and you pulling a random 5A fuse was just coincidence.
