Most likely burned the A/C relay so the points inside are welded closed, try replacing the relay, most parts stores should stock it. The radios anti-theft system turned on due to loss of voltage, you can try some of the radio codes on the internet, sometimes you get lucky and 1 works but you will probably wind up at the dealer so they can match the VIN and input the radio unlock code.

Depending on how much of the car is computer controlled, it seems everything got stuck when the power supply ran out. I'm going to agree with the tennis shoe guy, the radios anti theft is a good fix, but you main problem is "why is the battery not charging/holding power?" your service engine light/code should have warned you before a complete loss of power, if your car or battery is having charging problems you shouldn't turn on more things that draw power ( AC, radio etc) till the power problem is repaired. Get it scoped and start with the basic repair not the most expensive things 1st, anywhere can check a battery and alternator usually for free.
