2004 Sante Fe door chime, dome light, remote entry and radio stopped working

AJNS asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
My Dad was replacing the radio in his 2004 Santa Fe and was not sure of the wiring so he temporarily wired it. A piece of tape came off and a wire touched the back of the radio and shorted. The radio stopped working and I figured he blew the radio or a fuse. The radio works fine in another vehicle.

Then we noticed the door chimes do not work, the dome light does not come on when the door is open, the keyless entry does not unlock the doors and the radio does not work.

I checked all the fuses and they are good so I assume he blew something else like a relay or sensor.

Any ideas on what it could be that would control all of these things?

Thanks in advance
