Yes.  I believe the two are fed from the same power lead at the back of
the ignition switch.  What may have happened is that when the switch was
replaced the harness connector was damaged or the wire was inadvertently
pulled out.  Look for a small red wire (this will mean taking the
instrument cluster out so you can get to the switch and harness) on
terminal 86S.  I believe this is the one that powers the radio and the
central locking system/door chime.  Make sure all the connections at the
back of the switch are sound.
