Why did my fuse and stereo blow in my 1999 mustang?

Well i bought a 1999 mustang not too long ago, only about 3 weeks ago and it came with a sanyo satalite tv,dvd,cd,radio player with a 6.5 inch screen. i was driving down the road one day and i heard a POP and smoke came out of the stereo unit. i pulled it out to find that the power unit smoked on me and the fuse running to the power connector for the stereo had blown as well. could this have been a short out in the car or possibly a short out in the stereo unit?

DO NOT Try a higher Fuse, unless specified by the manufacturer.

You probably just had a short, or drew to much power.

Replace the fuse, check your wires and go back to life as it was.

Did you have any power wires touching a ground? Try a higher number fuse. An check your connections, something might have been touching a ground an popped your fuse.
