Please repeat the question on Psychic Tuesday (I could tell you which one that is, but that would be cheating) and maybe some tea leaf reader could help you.
Glad to hear your clock isn't running. It can be a real pain chasing those damn things.
BTW, is the television still working? Was there anyone home with the CD and radio when this happened? Could somebody have messed with the remote control?

Hi, Manual should show the fuse box map with marker. Or open up the fuse box and you will one marked with radio or such most likely. One wild guess, a button or switch may be stuck on the radio. Good luck.

interior one is the winner. Is it possible that the security code needs to be re-entered?

READ the manual. Both of the fuse panels have different fuses and the MANUAL, which you should READ will tell you which one contains the one you need to pull.
However, if this is too difficult for you to comprehend (and I mean you no disrespect) then you would be well advised to either get some help from a knowledgeable person who can actually put "hands on" and assist you or READ and UNDERSTAND the instructions regarding any security system incorporated in the radio system for that year of Civic. The reason for this is removing the fuse will lock up the radio if it's equipped with security and if you don't have the code, you'll turn the radio into a brick by removing the power and wind up at the dealer anyway.
I don't have one of that age so I don't know what, if any, security system is in place.

The light is a small LED. It won't drain the battery, unless the car is not started for a year.
Did you read your owner's manual?
It would also be helpful to have your make, model, year and type of radio.
