    Well I'm hoping its a fuse, read somewhere that the light in the boot is using the same fuse as car audio and cig lighter so fingers crossed that will do it.

    i have the same problem. My battery recently died and then my radio stopped working. I checked all my fuses and they are good. Still no radio. Is there a special fuse behind the radio not shown anywhere in the manuals?

    I have a similar problem. After attempting to jumpstart my car one day,I accidentally placed the positive cable where the negative cable should have been.When I did this I heard a pop.When I did eventually get my car started,my radio was completely dead. I checked fuses,they were all good. Did I kill my radio? :( I have a 1994 Corolla

You could have melted some wire's or blown the fuse in the actual radio it'self if it is a newer style radio i suggest taking the face plate off pop the side tabs slide the radio forward disconnect the harness and antenna booster check the fuse, should be on the back left or right corner also inspect the wiring ground wires ignition power wire ect. Also check the actual car fuses in you're car and when checking wiring be alert and use a electrical light tester or volt meter for power and ground and ect also cap or temporarliy tape all loose wires if you did not use a adapting harness.

2003 Trailblazer- no power after key stuck in ignition

Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.
