Question Switch or Vacuum Pump?

My automatic door locks on 95' s420 MB are not working neither are my back up (antennas) or my automatic trunk latch.


1) Are these symptoms all related to a bad vacuum pump?

2) How do I know which one is defective the door lock "switch" on the center console or the "Vacuum Pump"?

3) How do I remove the "upper" half of the center console. I already removed the bottom half but the top half...I have no idea. Are there more screws not visible? Are there special tools that I need? Do I have to remove the radio first?

Please Help.

Thank you in advance.

I am not sure what the antennas have to do with it. I would test the vac pump before dismantling the car. It is easier to get to.

Did you check the fuse(s) first?

Thanks! Yes, I did check all the fuses and they are all GOOD. I checked the fuse box in the trunk and the fuses located in the engine compartment. Are there any more that I can access?
