I dont remember if that year had a theft lock system or not, but I am looking into it. disconnect the negative battery cable for ten minutes and that should get you back to where you can enter the unlock code again and use the radio.
Unfortunately, this sounds like an internal problem with the radio. Internal as in within the radio itself, not a wiring problem. Not really much you can do about it. Sorry. Probably need a new radio. Good luck.
I know it sound crazy, but turn the system on, press eject while using a PLASTIC knife to lift the CD in the player. If the system is stock also try disconnecting the radio fuse for about 10 minutes or so with the car off. Reconnect it to see if the radio resets. You'll know the power completely went out because you'll have to reset your stations. By Resetting, hopefully the issue will solve itself. In a few of the system issues I've seen, when the motor won't open the faceplate, or the CD player won't give the CD back. I usually remove the faceplate or disconnect the negative side of the battery for about ten minutes. Try this if the fuse removal doesn't work. Good look. Let me know how it goes. there are other things to try.
The solution is to disconnect the head unit and the cd changer from each other and from the car itself, leave it for ten minutes. reconnect and turn the ignition on but not the car itself, enter radio code if has one and all should work.
