Question Electrical issues 1990 BG :( Bah humbug

Ok when I was buying Ruby I was told the radio didn't work - No biggy..

But.... It's the radio, the power mirrors & the LED clock in the dash !
So obviously a main fuse eh ?
Nopes...
Now haven't prodded too much yet but any thoughts - Ideas ??

I like cutting to the chase & am thinking of just feeding + power to
where the fuse clips in & seeing if I get "anything" to work

Soz now in your hands guys n gals

Factory of aftermarket head unit?
If after market then unplug it and check. It may have been installed by a colour blind origami ninja.

All fixed now !

Turns out the LED clock's been busted for at least 5 years
The power mirrors DO work but are very stiff & grumpy - Sitting one spot 5 years..
So the radio is either fried or only popped its inline fuse !

Should have tunes on the weekend
