You have blown a yellow fuse, usually labeled BODY. in the fuse box. If you look under the ash tray as you slide it out you will see the wires to the socket, usually they are loose and contact metal, popping the fuse. Also ck the rear lighter sockets for tin foil, dimes etc in them. They dont get used except for trash and anything metal in the lighter socket will pop the BODY fuse. . The radio acts up because the constant 12 volts to retain radio station memory is supplied by this same fuse, as well as door jamb switches and usually power door lock switches. If you cannt see the label Body on the fuse box, just pull the yellow fuses one at a time till you see the blown one. Hope this helps.
