Your IOD fuse is blown, it is under the hood in the fuse box, most likely in a yellow plastic case

Sounds like you have a short or a loose connection to the battery. Check your cables and fuses.

    Ok, did all this start happening after you installed the stereo>?

    Ok, it sounds like you have a short somewhere. And because it works when the engine is on but not when off will make it easier for the mechanic. Call your local garage and explain it to him, he should be able to track it down quickly. He can just plug the car in to the computer and get answers.

You need to re-set the radio security code. A dealer can help you with this. Don't blame the TOW truck driver... this happens any time you loose battery charge, or replace battery.

Electrical problem

Sounds more like electronic ignition switch. Coil or voltage regulator would display loss of power during acceleration, power surges (fuses blown).
