Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The a/c problem may be a separate issue but the rest of these problems would be caused by a lack of power on a memory circuit. The radio, interior lights, power locks and trunk release all rely on ignition off draw power. A blown fuse is almost always the cause.

Do you have the VIN?
