08 GT Post Stereo Install Problem

I finished installing a new Kenwood stereo yesterday, and now that I am buttoning everything back up, I now have no power to the climate controls. I have hooked all the harnesses back up, but nothing. Anyone have any ideas, am I overlooking something really simple?

If you hook everything back up, but leave the stereo UNHOOKED, does the climate control system work?

Could it be as simple as a blown fuse?

There's two connectors for the climate controls. The one on the left is a snap lock type but the one on the right has a locking lever type mechanism. Are you sure you have the plug fully engaged and the locking lever flipped totally seating the pins?

It was one of the plugs after all- it really looked seated at 10 pm last night. Amazing how different things can look in the daytime! Thanks for all the quick responses
