Instrument cluster dead after Battery replaced

It is possible AAA worker connected the battery backwards for just a second and got a big spark. This can cause major issues, but sometimes just minor ones, such as blown fuses. Check every fuse for starters. There are also fusible links in the wiring which can be blown.

My radio in my 1994 540i bmw is off beacuse i didn't put the code in soon enough, what do i do?

Is the problem that you did not put in the code soon enough, or that you tried three wrong codes and locked it out? I don't think there is a time limit, but all of us have punched in wrong codes and locked out our radios before. If the display says WAIT, you tried three wrong codes.
If it is locked out, you have to drive for an hour with the radio turned on before it will let you try again. If you disconnect the battery during that hour, you just reset the 1-hour timer back to zero so you have to wait longer.

Need the unlocked code for my radio in my 1994 bmw 540i

you'll need to take your VIN and the radio serial number (located on the back of the radio) and maybe even one of the master keys to a BMW dealer and they will look it up for you.
