Ford Escort LX 88, Radio won't work and windshield wipers(drivers side) comes loose

I know nothing of cars so please explain the best you can as I am trying to.

My car is a Ford Escort LX 88 "4 door hacthback" if it matters, and my radio just stopped working one day it worked flawlessly before that and I think I knocked something loose when I close the hood, it closes hard even if I just drop it and let it close on it's own.

Also it ALWAYS knocks the drivers side wind shield wiper loose and I have to reconnect it to the thing it's on, and forgot to put on topic title but headlights wont stay on I have to hold the switch.


What do I look for to try to reconnect the radio?? and how do I prevent the wiper from coming loose?

Check fuses for radio , it may have an inline fuse .Not sure what type of fitting on wiper arm on that yesr , but it's usually a case of pulling the plastic cover up and tightening the 13mm nut that holds the arm onto the wheel box spindle.
