When i went to pull off i notice that the car wouldnt move so i tryed to start it again but it wouldnt even turn over to start. All my lights inside the car worked perfect. I tryed jumping it but still no start. Any answers? ?

It sounds like you may have a weak battery possibly or potentially a problem with your alternator or voltage regulator. Depending on how your new stereo is wired, this may have caused an excessive power draw causing a fuse to blow as well. I would recommend having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to take a look at your vehicle to determine what may have caused this.
