Trunk won't open with either remote but will open with trunk button on drivers door

I would check the owners manual or with Cadillac - its possible the remotes lost part of the signal and need to be reset. It sounds like the receiver is not getting a signal from them by using that button.
Could be the receiver too.

My trunk will not open with the inside trunk release nor with the keyless remote? I think it's a loose wire, but where would I start to find it?

if the key opens the trunk by hand, the problem is most likely the electric actuator or its linkage on the backside of the lock assembly accessible thru trunk or lid check linkage and wire connector first, check for voltage at connector when release button is pushed.. reply back if you have further questions...MK

CD player in trunk

Go to a local car audio shop.
In the Pacific NW we have a chain called Car Toys.
You can also check your local Best Buy if they have an car audio install center.
There are a number of other stores specific to different areas.
