Chain reaction elec problem. Immobiliser?

So, I pull my radio out to look at it, but it's still hooked up. Break the electrical door lock button in the process...and car still runs but electrical door lock button is sunk down in the console a bit. Radio lite works except I dont' have the radio code to get it running so I've ordered a new radio rather than fool with it. In the meantime, the car had been starting and driving fine.

But today...I go out and it acts like it's got a dead battery. Won't start. No lights, no starter click, no nothing...however, the dash lights work, radio lite works, and the electrical door locks work. What could be wrong?

I checked the battery and connections...tight, clean, and battery is at full charge.

What might have I done? Activated some sort of car immobilizer?

All because PO lost the code to the radio.
