interor light, the clock an the cig. lite

I've got a few weird problem that I don't know where to begin. First off when I open my door that pleasent little beeping sound doesn't happen. My fasten seat belt light doesn't blink when I turn the engine over an my interior light no longer comes on. I have to leave the interior light switch on the most forward setting (towards the winshield) or the clock and cig lite outlet does not work. Where do I start, I did the 1st obvious, checked the fuses, everything seemed fine. suggestions anyone? thanks
brian

they are all on the same fuse, I have issues with that ckt. on my car as well, I suspect it has to do with the aftermarket stereo but I have not pulled it yet to check it out. the fuse is blown right now but the clock "sometimes" works which says to me that something's backfeeding that ckt.

Check the circuit plunger in the door jam on the driver's side it may be stuck or the ground wire to the plunger may be broken. If the hot wire is broken the fuse will blow.

as far as the interior light...

Check that it hasn't melted the plastic inside on the switch. I had to tweak mine so that it would work.
