Malibu 2011 Car won't start

My after market cd player stopped working. I went to install my original cd player. As I was taking off the panel the gear shifter started to blink. After I installed the radio I now won’t get any power to the car. What could have possibly went wrong.

you did this installation with the car power on?

Probably shorted something and blew a fuse.
