Question: Why is my windows and interior lights not working?

So I had a mechanic change a fuel pump and when i picked up the vehicle I noticed the windows weren't going down. I also noticed that evening that no lights were turning on when i open the doors. I automatically checked all the fuses under the drivers panel and under the hood in the power distributor box. No fuses were blown. I cant use the power windows from any of the four doors. Can someone help me please?

It sounds like you've got a power relay out--or very likely it is slightly ajar in the relay panel. Often a fuel gauge diagnosis/repair involves removing and bypassing the fuel pump relay, which is often next to the power relay. You can read the link to the article on how to go about troubleshooting the power window circuit, starting with the relay, or you can take the vehicle back to the repair shop and ask them to check over your relays and explain to them your symptoms.

If you enter the search terms "troubleshoot" or "diagnose" with whatever you're looking for ("power windows", "brakes", "fuel gauge") into Google or another search engine (without using the quotes) you will find plenty of sites with information.

Car Brakes: How Do You Know When to Change Them?

By Zach Bowman For those who suffer a daily commute through heavy traffic, your vehicle's braking system can bring thousands of pounds of metal, plastic and empty Starbucks cups to a stop hundreds of times before you get to work. It goes without saying that these pieces wear out, but they do so slowly, meaning you may not notice they need attention until ...
