What's the symptom? "No magazine", "no CD", or what message is displayed on the head unit's screen?
My CD changer got constant power to it because it could eject or load the cartridge when the key is not in the ignition. So if water spills into it, the damage can be done instantly unless there's a separate fuse for it. Check the fuse diagram under the hood, on the driver's side dashboard (on the side) and under the back seat.
Around here, I see used CD changer goes for $200-$300.
