Hello my name is Scott, I have a 95 Chrysler Concorde with only 62,000 miles on it. Give or take a few miles. I was on my way home from work one day when my radio stopped playing, thinking it was nothing since I play music through my phone (my personal radio I installed) thinking it was my phone, and being home already I paid no thought to it. Till I looked at my radio it was off. I pulled it out thought something got disconnected, and also thought it could have been since it was really hot due to the heat vent being right behind it. It wasn't till I tried to lock my doors (power locks) that I found out something wasn't right. Not only does my radio not work, my power locks don't work, my mirrors don't move, and my internal lighting doesn't turn on nor does my under the hood light, trunk light, or glove compartment light. I thought it was the fuse, but in less I manage to blow all the different fuses their on I don't think it is that. I also tried resetting the battery you know taking the negative off for a few then putting it back on. Still nothing. I'm out of ideas please help.

These cars had big problems with the ignition switch shorting out and it sounds like that is what is wrong with your car.

I would check the fuses as well I recall, there is a fuse box on the left side of the dash. You have to open the door then pull off the black cover. The front edge is tucked under the lip of the weatherstrip. There's another fuse box under the hood. The smaller fuses have two tiny holes on top of the plastic where you can poke the probe of a test light. Good fuses will cause the test light to turn on when you touch the probe to each terminal. When the light turns on at neither terminal, that circuit is just turned off. You're looking for any fuse where the light turns on at one terminal but not the other one. Of course you can just pull the fuses out too to look at them but that takes a lot of time.
