start by carefully prying the woodgrain/brushed aluminum panel around the column shift upwards. Start at the rear, near the cubby. be very careful not to break it where the panel wraps around the drivers side of the shift indicator. when it is removed, you will see screws holding the next panel on (may be 7mm hex or philips - can't remember...) once removed, you can pry that section off as well exposing the radio and climate control screws. both have to come out to get the radio out. the XM portion is not in this radio, but is actually in the rear end of the truck behind the side panel on the driver's side. Be careful if you go poking around in there, because you may have a power inverter back there feeding 115v power to the center console (entertainment package).

Try disconnecting the wires to the blower motor before you put in another fuse. If the new fuse does not blow you need to replace the blower motor.

Unfortunately it has been a few years since I've removed the dash in my sisters 95 century(same setup as yours)... but I came across something that should give you some decent pointers.
that is a link to a pdf, which, on Page 3 gives a basic text description of what you need to remove in order to get the dash trim off and gain access to the radio. If that link does not work, here's the link the page from which you can download the above mentioned file also...

The trim snaps in, no screws! I have used a hook type screwdriver, the kind used to install springs... I carefully insert the tool between the lower left corner of the radio and the bezel. Rotate the tool 90 degrees toward the bezel and pull straight out. Id say it comes off with maybe 15 pounds of pulling force. The radio is screwed in with brackets. You'll see once the bezel is off. **Keep in mind that many Optimas use an external amp located between the right rear door and wheel well. Also, some use 2 ohm speakers, all the way around. You may need to change all of it to upgrade your sound system, I did**. Good luck.
