88' Camaro Electrical Issue

Hi,
I just recently got a 88' IROC Camaro off eBay and the radio doesn't work most of the time so I moved the antenna around to see if it was the antenna causing the issue. I got the antenna in a certain position and the radio started to work, after that I wanted to see if I could hook up a Bluetooth device to the cigarette lighter to play music off of my phone, I did it before and everything worked fine. As soon as I plugged it in the radio shut off completely and now the interior lights, power locks, rear hatch button, climate control, and radio don't turn on. Could anyone give me some help on this and maybe share with me a wiring diagram?

Thanks

Check your fuses.

I checked the fuses they all seem to be working, only thing is that there is a couple fuses missing. The radio one is missing, but the radio turned on before.

No telling how your radio is wired then, I would pull it and rewire it properly.
