Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!
It sounds as if the radio may have failed. If it won't come on and faintly displays the word code, not with a normal brightness, then the radio has most likely failed or has a poor power or ground.
If the radio loses power for any reason then it will ask for a code but I'm assuming that's not how the problem started. If the radio simply stopped working then most likely it has failed. You would need to test it's power and ground feeds before condemning it.
Did the problem start after a battery disconnect, dead battery, removing the radio or it's fuse?
