RIO ELECTRICAL PROBLEM

2001 Kia Other

2001 Kia Rio 4dr Sedan 62,000 miles.

Not working after thieves ripped out the radio:
Dome light (neither manual on or when door open), Door ajar indicator,
Buzzer indicating headlights are on when driver's door is opened and keys are out of the ignition.

All fuses seem to be fine.

There are 12 wires in the harness to the radio that I've clipped and electrical taped all ends to be sure there isn't any shorting between wires. There doesn't appear to be any damage to anything.

Thanks for any ideas and your wonderful forum.

I was wrong about the fuses.

After aquiring an electrical trouble shooting manual from Kia, I found that the " Memory" fuse, (15a) located in the fuse box under the hood, also protected this circuit.

Replacing this fuse fixed the problem.
