Radio not working after jump start!

Does anyone know why the radio would not be working after I had the car jump started. I don't know if it is because the battery is too weak or if a fuse has been blown. I am going to troubleshoot tomorrow, but i figured it would be easier if someone had an answer to what i could narrow my search down to. Thank you! BTW my car is a 98' Chevrolet Monte Carlo.

If your radio has the Theft-Lock feature, it is possible that you will need to enter your code (numeric password) to unlock it. I usually advise owners to disable this feature just in case something like this happens.

If you don't know how to do this, I can give you some partial help.

I will have to look at the manual for my car stereo and see if this is the case. Thank you, and i will get back w/ you.

if it says LOC when you turn on the radio, its locked. if it doesnt work at all, its a fuse
