Radio stopped, also Speedometer and Power Door Locks

The radio, the speedometer, power door locks, and ant-theft system in my son's '98 V6 stopped working. All at the same time. I figured the problem must be common to all, since they were all affected at the same time, right?

Any suggestions on where to start? Fuses are good. Thanks

EDIT 6 PM: ==> FUSE IS NOT GOOD (Next time I check for myself) The fuse that handles the radio, p/side mirrors, courtesy lights, and alarm burnt out. A new one blew immediately. Funny thing, the p/door locks operated for a few operations, then n/g. The breaker for that circuit is good. Gotta check that later, also.

Finding out why the fuse blows should take care of the radio and the other stuff, but what about the speedo? The cruise control still works so if I'm not mistaken that would prove the VSS is good, right?

Glad you figured it out, I was going to suggest you check fuses.

Thanks, coolbreeez- good thing I looked further than what the car "owner" told me ... ha ha.

Today we keep checking the speedo problem, and then for the reason why the fuse blows.

Found the problem in the cassette deck. Unplugged it, all is okay, including the speedo. Repairing the radio is for another day.
