Default Loose fuse?

Recently I had my uncle take a look at my power antenna because I thought the motor had burned out and needed replacement. I was right, the motor on the old one was gone, but the new antenna would not work properly. We wired it correctly, and it would go up correctly when the radio went on and went down when it was turned off. The only problem is that it would not go back up again when the radio was turned back on. My uncle noticed that either the switched or unswitched wire (red one, whichever it is) had no power. Is this a wiring problem somewhere or is it the antenna? The people at AutoZone told me the antenna was the right one. What'* the deal?

After we checked fuses on this job, my map lights (dome lights) and passenger side floor lights no longer light up. Also my inside door locks do not function. I can lock the car from the outside, but inside is non-functional. Is this just a loose fuse somewhere?

by inside locks im assuming u mean power locks, and that sounds like a bit much to be on one fuse, but u should definatly check that...

Are you saying that it went through its cycle precisely once, and it'* been dead ever since?

Were your door locks and interior lamps all working before this? (i.e. They were still working even when the original, dead antenna was in the car, yes?)
