Help needed (apart from needing a brain)

I've just fitted a new battery and connected it up the wrong way round - what's that burning smell - oh **** - if I had a brain I'd be dangerous.
Fortunately the car starts fine and everything seems OK except the radio which shows no sign of life - any ideas which fuse it runs off or whether it has its own internal one.

The good news is the new battery ( a light weight Odyssey one only weighs 6.5KG compared to the orignal which weighs a massive 15KG)

Stereo should have its own internal fuse. Remove the stereo with the pair of pin removers supplied with the car and pull towards you and the fuse should be behind it on the wire harness. It's also quite possible that it has a separate fuse in the fuse board. Not sure 100%. Check manual for location. Normally fuses don't smell like burn when they pop so you might need to go shopping for a new unit. Hopefully not.
Lets hope your Monza ECU reprogram doesn't need replacing also. Have to say you were lucky if thats all you got away with. So now you're BHP/weight ratio is better. Excellent!!!
