Removing the radio disconnected the interior lights.

I had to take the radio out of my car and now the interior lights won't come on. i'm not sure it was wired right when the previous owner put the radio in.

It sounds like the power wire fed the lights as well. Most of the time its just a piggyback and when you break the connection it disrupts anything powered by it. Although I must admit that this would be a wired wiring but stranger things have happened.

the very first thing I would check is the fuse under the dash. If you it any of the wires taking the radio out you may bhave blown the fuse that protects it and it is very common for a fuse to control and protect more than one item such as a radio , interior lights and cig lighter all at once. If the fuse is blown then problem solved. If not your going to need a tester to find out what wires are poer, negative and what goes where.

try this.. disconnect the vehicle battery entirely, connect a 10 amp battery charger to the car connectors matching the terminal leads..and power the car with the charger..you should hear a hum or buzz in whichever relay or circuit breaker is bad.. replace this relay and the lights and stuff should work..the charger will not direct-short but the guage may go full over indicating a malfunction..or extreme load.. maybe a window switch might be fried..you should be able to hear any issues as long as power is coming from the charger only...repost findings..

Assuming you have checked all fuses, the next step would be to locate central grounding points (there may be several) and remove and clean battery terminals and the remote ends of the cables at their attachment points.Locating some of these may be easier with a manual covering the electrical system of the car:
Sebring manual
When removing battery cables, always start with the negative cable first and reattaching it last.

Replaced ac condensor and now the radio, clock, interior lights won't turn on


Radio and clock/interior lights are two different circuits. Check your fuse block to see if it has power.

My car horn is stuck on (very loud) and I removed the fuse for the horn, but now my radio or interior lights dont work. What do i do?


Hello,

was the radio and interior light working before you removed the fuse for the horn? In the process of removing the fuse for the horn, you must have mistakenly tempered with the fuse for the radio and interior light.

So I would suggest you go back to the fuse box and deep them in properly because the interior and radio fuse might not be contacting properly.

I hope this makes sense to you.

Good luck.

Where is the door contact switch?


Hiya
Check all 4 doors to see what works and doesn't work, be sure the interior domelight switch is set to turn on automatically when any door is open as well try the radio then open the 4 doors to see if it turns off...if your driver's side door don't work as you stated then that should be the door's "at fault".

GM built the door contact switch that's installed INSIDE the door-it's located inside the door striker/jamb area...it require removal of door trim to gain access.

However, you might want to try this visual inspection:
Check the thick wire harness located between the front-left door and door sill frame to see if any wire has been disconnected/cut or tampered with by previous owner.
