Please help

Can anyone help?

My husband just bought me a 1988 75a at an auction. The body is in great condition and most of the electrical works on the drivers side but, the pax side acts like it has suffered a stroke.

The pax windshield wiper, window and door does not work; the back seat window and door doesn't work; and the trunk and gas flap are hard to open; the keys themselves are hard to get out of the ignition switch; and I have seen the back pax light stay on at night so it drains the battery by morning.

I have tried manually to open the pax with the key in both the driver's and pax's sides of the car at a 45 and 90 degree angle sometimes holding the key at the angle.

I have checked the fuses under the hood and in the back seat. (standard fuses, other fuses are greek to me). None of them looked burnt out.

The air, driver's wiper, obc, lights, etc. seem to be working okay.

Where do I start
