The radio is not working, the security light on the radio is binking and i think i'am supposed to type in a code.but don't know what to press.
I think the cause of this was that i was working on the car and my screwdriver brushed across the alternater and ground and made a bit of a spark which may have put the radio in security mode.
The radio requires a 5-digit security code. When it was installed, most dealers put the code somewhere in the car. It's an unlabeled 5-digit number with digits ranging from 1-6. Mine was inside the glove box, I've heard of them being under the hood in the fuse box or in the trunk.

Check the main fuses under the hood. There are several large ones there. A loose connection on one of them could have caused the sudden, complete electrical failure you described. If it is a loose connection, it would certainly explain why it "came back to life" by itself.
Also, might you possibly have any sort of aftermarket security system that has an immobilizer feature on it? While I wouldn't expect this to disable the entire car including the radio, if it were incorrectly installed I suppose it could.
Opposed to a blown fuse, most likely the drained/dead battery caused the radio to "reset" itself. You should have a 5 digit (or 4) code that was provided by the dealer or owner. Most owners write it down somewhere on their owners manual. If not, the dealer can give you the code. Once the code is entered, you back in business!
