Default lights, automatic locks & clock electrical problems

there are two (seemingly) unrelated electrical problems with my 99
camry ce:

1. one day, when i pulled at my loose door housing, the automatic
locks and the clock stopped working. when the car is started however,
the automatic locks do work and the clock is VERY dim. before i open
up the door housing, suggestions?

2. interior & trunk lights donít work. tried replacing the bulbs, no
luck.

thank you all for any suggestions.

Check the fuses. All the items you describe are available with the car on
or off, so I'd bet the Dome light fuse is snapped...

If the key is worn have a new key cut by key-code, either at the dealer or a
lock shop. If key is good spray some penetrating oil and/or lock lube in
key-hole. I've had the best luck with a lock penetrant/lube from Ford
dealer. Comes in aerosol can and appx $5.
