If you havent already checked...disconnect the battery. then hook the stereo up. then finally check the fuses in the fuse panel and distribution box.

No sparks

Have seen a few flood damaged cars. people buy them cheap and think they can bring them in swap in a new battery and sell for $$. Not saying this is ur case, but yeah, Sometimes water and condensation just gets places it was never supposed to. Water damage issues are totally case by case. Get a multimeter and start testing you have power in all necessary places.
good luck

Key locked in ignition 06 DTS and electonics dead

It could be a bad ignition key assembly. The key assembly has a unit attached to it to read the Security code in the key and sometimes when these start to go bad they overheat bad. Go have it checked out by your mechanic.

My radio in my 2004 dts will not turn on after battery went dead

You need to gete the radio security code and enter it in. Just call or drop by the dealer and theye can give you the code or enter it. Should be free but your dealer may vary. When you changed the battery and lost power the radio goes into a secure mode just in case it was stolen. The code should be about 4 digets long so its not a big thing to enter. its keyed to your vin number so the d ealer may want to see that as well as your registtration and maybe a drivers licence depending on how paranoid they are.

My battery went totally dead,and after we replaced it the radio wont turn on. There aren't any numbers showing on it at all.

the radio may have a security code in it so if it is stolen it will not work you will have to either check your users hand book or talk to the dealer to find out the code in the radio & reset it, once the power is disconnected from a radio that has a security code activated it will not work until it is recoded.....hope this helps.....cheers.
