The ck engine light is telling you to have it scanned and it will have a trouble code to indicate where to look for the problem. You may have a Vent valve or purge valve problem, it may just be a coincidence that it happened after filling up.

You have a failed output section inside the radio. If you remove the radio, and take it apart, you will see some burnt capacitors at the very back side of the PC board. This is, unfortunatly, a very common problem with those cars. You are going to have to get another radio, the expense for the manufacturer to fix is is more expense than a replacement. Sorry, but I have seen this situation too many times.

Radio problems

if it's the original radio, the part in the dash is not the radio, it is just the control head. the guts of the radio unit are under the dash above the accelerator pedal. did you replace all of it? or just the control head or just the actual radio under the dash?
