2002 Ford Taurus Electrical Issue Sign In

Hello- My son got his first car and wanted to replace the stereo. When he removed it from the dash, the power windows, power door locks and interior light stopped working. He was also getting a clicking sound from the fuse box, like a relay turning on/off. We replaced the accessory relay and that did not solve the problem. The clicking does stop when another door is opened. We started taking out fuses and the clicking stopped with the removel of fuse #26 (mirrors, power antenna, pulse stretcher module, deck lid lamp, battery saver) fuse was in good shape and not popped. Speedometer/odometer has also stopped but all other dash gauges are still working.
Any thoughts/ideas would be apprieciated. We have not hooked up the new radio as we want to get this problem solved first.

Did he cut or remove any wires when he removed the radio?

Was it a factory installed radio?
