Default Electrical problems, need help bad

hey everyone, i have a weird situation here that i need help with. Today i installed a new power antenna(doesnt work) and now my power door locks dont lock, they only unlock. My keyless entry doesnt work, and my trunk release does not work. Is this a single fuse or multiple fuses? would this be cause by power antenna not being connected?

If some one could help me figure out the antenna wiring then that MIGHT solve my problem.
the color wires i have for my antenna are orange, dark green and black. I have checked the voltage of the wires and the dark green is posetive and black is negative but when i connect them i can only hear the relay in the antenna click, nothing happens. I know the antenna works because i used a battery charger and connected the wires and it went up and down.



thanks

Hello:

I have had the exact same problem with 1997 Bonneville and was wondering if anyone has came up with a solution. We are thinking we have burnt out a relay and don't know which one it is or where to find it.

Any help with this would be so appreciated! I just wanted to have my power antenna working again and we actually made more problems. Argh!

Please let me know if you all have any ideas at all.

Thank-you

Witchy

Check fuse 2 (15 amp) in the right hand fuse box. This supplies power to the power antenna, RFA module and trunk release as well as retained accessory power relay.

This is from the 97 manual but should be accurate for 98 as well

YAY! I have to say that fixed it right up! Thank-you so much for your reply. It would have taken a lot longer without your help. Besides I was looking in the wrong fuse box!

Thanks again

Rock on
