If you can determine that the CD 's are loading and turning on the spindle, it's most likely either a bad laser or an open connection in the audio wiring between the trunk unit and the front, most likely from corrosion. If there is no sign of power to the trunk unit, I'd check the fuse and the DC power wiring connectors for corrosion.

If you can fold a piece of emery paper small enough to get it into the female side of the connectors, inserting it in and out will usually get rid of corrosion.

A maintenance manual or a wiring diagram will surely help to get it straight if you can find one. The site below might help:
