Question Need help with few issues went wrong with W124 E420

Brought car back from shop and few things are looking weird:
1) I turn on the radio and it displays the station but the antenna doesn't come up and no volume (sound) from the radio
2) The car vacuum door locks don't work anymore; I close the door with key and other door knobs stay ulocked.
3) The interior dome light come on when i turn on the radio

I was told by the shop all they did is recharge the battery with a portable charger after the car didn't start since they had the doors open all day while working on the car and drained the battery.

Is this a temporary state or did something go wrong. Any pointers on where to start looking?

If it were my car I'd be heading straight back to the shop and let them fix it. Obviously they made a mistake thats causing your electrical system to go crazy. I'd check your fuses for starters, but that shouldn't cause your lights to come on with the radio on/off switch.

check your fuses

The antenna, power locks and the rear dome light all operate on the same circuit. Check the fuse first. Good luck.

Smile Found the culprit!

It was the C9 (red 16 Amps fuse) that got blown while the guys at the shop were working on the car... funny all they had to do is replace the headliner but apparently they had to jack with some wires and shorted something out causing fuse to blow. Thanks for those who replied.. you guys are awesome!
