There are two fuses for the radio. There is one under the hood and another behind the change drawer on the drivers side of the car. Are both of them intact? It sounds like the constant 12volt might not be working.

Check the speaker wires maybe they have worked loose. And speakers themselves as they may blown. Do you have an amp if so check its fuse.
Also check for inoperative interior lights, lighter, and horn. One of these circuits will power the radio's memory circuit. Some radio models will appear to work normally but have no sound if the memory fuse is blown. The clue is the clock will reset to 12:00 each time you turn on the ignition switch.
Sound as if there is an internal problem with the system. Will the CD eject when commanded? If not, try to remove it manually with a pair of tweezers or something of the sort to see if it will come back on line. You can also disconnect the battery for a few minutes to erase the units memory ( you may require a code if it has a theft feature ) to see if it will start working again. If nothing gets better, suspect an internal unit issue
Let's see, the 98 still had a cassette player in the head unit correct?
There should be a button toward the top, far right, that says Tape/CD.
If the CD player has been disconnected, it may be necessary to 'reboot' the system to get the head unit to sync up with the CD player. Disconnecting the battery is the simplest way, but you will have to reset the anti-theft code in the radio and reprogram various memories (seats, etc) if you disconnect the battery.
Losing all electronic settings like what? You probably won't lose them if you don't take an hour replacing a battery. The only problem I've had with replacing batteries is that the clock resets on most cars, don't be lazy, set it again.
