depends on the dealer. many will blame the aftermarket job. if a shop installed your system they should be able to check of everything is wired properly. sounds like you have a short somewhere (wires pinching or bare wire contacting metal).

you could have a shorted wire somewhere... check the wires that you can and make sure that no wires are exposed and touching another wire or metal on the car.

from your other thread, i would replace the dome light bulb and see if it works.. if not , it's not expensive anyway.

i would check your audio wires agian too, and if you can't find the problem, take your audio system and wires out and then take it to toyota.

First English helps, hard to read your posts, like really hard.

I would double check all my fuses and bulbs, as well as rest the car by disconnecting the negative battery cable.

If your still having problems I doubt your "system" has anything to do with it, unless you cut into existing system you should have left the hell alone.

check the wiring up there at the dome light... sounds like you did something to the wiring when trying to take the dome light cover off.

also, check your battery terminals and make sure they're on tight and not corroded.

Check the wiring + switch at the dome light. I think you made a shortcut (clock goes on and of).
