Ah darn, it could be a whole slew of things. It could be a bad ground - If you have a spyder it could all be rusted under the dash making a bad ground. It may be the ECU computer that is on the passenger side fire wall under the dash. There is about 3 or 4 connectors with about 40 wires that go to the ECU that could get water damage and corroded. I recently flipped a 03 spyder that the owner could not get it to start and about 8 error codes were being thrown. I got it for a deal and took a good weekend removing the dash and cleaning all the rust off the contacts, put it back together - cleared the codes and it started, found idle after about two tries starting- no check engine light and sold it for $$ a week later.

pop the side piece on the passenger side of the dash and see how it looks. You will be amazed on how ugly it gets in there.

did U ever get this issue figured out. I'm going through the same thing, including the idle issue. My tech says he cleaned throttle body and idle control valve and now she idles, ( I think he just erased codes) but still no radio, clock, interior lights and door locks only work with key on. Any help would be appreciated.
