1993 Subaru impreza

Okay so, i also posted this in electrical.. but the car ran fine.. until the stereo was stolen.. now nothing works... i assume that the person who stole the stereo cut some wrong wire or something.. was wondering what kind of fix this would be and maybe an estimate on the price to fix it if you have any ideas? thanks!

there is no way to estimate this. I would have to have the car in front of me and a wiring diagram. I still couldn't tell you how much it was until I was done. Often with an electrical gremlin it takes ten bucks worth of parts and ten hours to bang your head in a wall to fix it. Unfortunately you got hit by ameteurs who probably cut wires. Pros unplug things as its faster to get what they want. My ex got hit by punks with wire cutters when she had a skylark and it sucked. If only they were in range of the 12 gauge! No such thing as repeat offenders after that.

This is very strange as a stereo being stolen (even badly) could not cause yoru car not to run? Unless they cut wires from underneath your gauges or steering column, which they would not need to do? The only things that hard wire into your car for a stereo is your constant power for memory (retaining settings and radio stations) which can be tapped into your interior light or brake light wire. Then your power for your unit which is linked to either accessories wire or cigarette lighter? I have no idea what these guys have done to you? Sorry.
