Unhappy Locks/Antenna/Interior Light Problem

I recently had a left rear window clip replaced in my 87 300SDL. Obviously, the shop needed to remove the door panel. I picked up the car after hours today and noticed the dome light was on. The switch was in the correct position, but the light would not turn off unless the switch was set to "off". Also, the fasten seat belts light stayed on when driving.

Upon closer inspection, the power door locks, antenna, gas flap, and trunk lock do not work. The trunk and locks are operational only if done manually.

Any ideas as to what I could look for? Seems almost like the door pin switch and a vacuum leak, but why would these problems surface immediately after working on the inside of a door?

Thanks in advance for your help.
