Good afternoon, welcome to the Technical section in JustAnswer. My name is ***** ***** I will help you today.

Have you checked the fuse(s) for the things that now don't work?

If you receive a phone call offer, please ignore it - these are system generated and outside my control. My understanding is that you won't be charged if there's no phone call.

No haven’t tried anything, didn’t know where to start! Does fuses affect the key operating the doors & starting the engine?
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 15 days ago.

Usually, in a modern car, there's a fuse for every circuit.

Do you have the owner's handbook?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
I have it.
Expert:  Tim Cooke replied 15 days ago.

The list of fuses, and the purpose of each, is in the handbook. You should be able to see if one fuse covers the items that aren't currently working. If so then you'll need to replace that fuse.

Before you replace any fuses, see if you can see any chafed cable or connector, associated with removing the radio, that might have touched the car chassis/body and shorted out that circuit.

Will do! Cheers! If it stays dry tomorrow, no garage. ��
