Default Trouble shooting with radio and lights

Alright, I already posted one topic about how to install the radio if all the wires were cut. If anyone here knows how that would be helpful too. But my main thing now is how to get all the lights inside the car to work. The power mirrors won't work. Also, none of the interior lights come on when the doors are opened. What should I do?

make sure the little sensors move, but most likely it will be a blown fuse, if the mirrors don't work, the locks don't work, and the lights don't work its fuse 15 [20amp]. at least that is the way it is on my '89.

A way to reinstall a radio with all cut wires is to try to match up the colors [if this applies to you] from the wires, to the connector[*] if there arn't any connectors or wire color[*] left on the connector then I can't help ya there.

This sounds like a problem with the main harness in the door?
DId you look inside the door panel or side foot panel for any chaffed wires?
