Default 96 bonneville problem help please

i just bought this car from a family member and they cut the factory wire harness in the radio out, i guess by accident. the problems i am having are first the windows, they were working great at first but when i tried to hook back up the factory harness back to the wires that got cut strange things started happening the windows stopped working, they are pulling power because it dimms the lights but its like they are not getting enough power. i was able to inch the front windows up but the back ones will not move at all. i thought i was crazy in thinking the windows were hooked up through the radio but sure enough i pulled the fuse for the radio and the windows will not pull power or work at all. i guess what im wondering is does anyone have a wiring diagram for those radio wires or is the problem coming from somewhere else. also the a/c compressor is not getting power as well is there a chance those wires have to do with the compressor not getting power as well.

Pull the radio out, and put the fuse back in (this way no connections are being made through the radio). Try the windows. If they work, then one of the wires is hooked up wrong. Knowing there is more than one wire of the same color, we will need to have you test wires to hook them up properly with a schematic that we'll find.

The AC could be on the same fuse or it may be low on freon/leaked out etc.
