Cool horrible bump= no radio

Hello I have a 2006 Pontiac G6. I had been having the normal cd player problems that I have seen multiple users post about. The cd player stopped playing cd's and also wouldn't reject or load them anymore. So I decided to go with XM radio. It worked great until today.... I was coming home from a day out and I usually try to avoid big bumps and holes in the road but there was a truck with a trailer so i couldn't swerve to miss it. As soon as i hit the bump my stereo went out. I have checked all of the fuses and didn't find anything wrong. The screen is completely blank no illumination or anything. The clock does come on however when i press the clock button so I know its not just that the screen stopped working. Anyways i'm going to try to unhook the battery and hook it back in and see if that will help but that is all i know to do to try to fix it. If yall have any advice i would greatly appreciate it.

You can try removing the stereo to see if the connectors in the back have come loose. Although that's highly unlikely. It sounds to me like the stereo itself may be done. Something internal that I wouldn't know how to attack. Maybe now is a good time to go with an aftermarket stereo?

Disconnect your battery for 15 min and let it all reset.

Crab Intakes CAB, MPD Ram Air hood, Custom exhaust,
WAMS High Performance Tune and a whole lot more....

Try the reset like Lampoon said but if you checked all the connections and fuses and they are all good it is probably an internal solder that has broke, thus radio is not working. You can try to look but it will be difficult to figure out what it is or what broke. Good Luck though
