i think it might be the fuses, how can i change out that one, are there any extras in the car, like in the glove box, or hidden somewhere else?

Try autozone... Fuses seem more logical than frying the deck. Check the fuse block in the car and the fuse on the back of the deck , and you should use butt crimps to hold the wiring together.

When my ex and I were fighting, I was installing a system in his car for his birthday..and I he started yelling at me so I purposly shorted out pretty much every fuse in his car. Including the one behind the CD player. laughsilly So check that one, normally that blows in order to protect it. wink

Goto page 2, fuse #20 is the clock, dome ... if you blew this fuse you need to go to the dealer and buy a $5.00 fuse from them.

If that green clock doesn't work that is the only fuse it will be on, are you sure all four fuses were ok ?

Check the connector on the back of the clock as well, see if it's pushed in all the way.

fuse #20 in the passenger side fuse box is a special mutli-fuse which contains four individual fuses within one housing. It is a special type of fuse and can only be purchase from a toyota dealership.


Fuses 19 - 22 are all multi-fuses
