Electrical problems

We have a 2005 chevy cobalt base. My husband replaced the Airbag Clock spring and installed a new radio. Couple days after that a symbol of a car with a lock appeared at the dash. It only stays on for like 3 seconds and then turns off. The power steering went bad but the car stills start. Then AC and wipers stopped working, and Anti theft symbols keeps appearing when car starts and after a couple of seconds goes off.
Any idea of what could have gone wrong?
(We replaced the battery already and everything stills the same)

**UPDATE (just in case some one else finds himself on the same problem) **

The problem was the IP Ignition fuse under the hood
Everything went back to normal now 🙏🏼
