Question about 1989 Toyota Corolla 2 Door

1 Answer

My radio, clock and internal light don't work

Hi all,

I've got a 1989 Toyota Corolla 1.6 GL Executive. A few days ago I replaced the stereo and now for some reason the radio, the standard digital clock and the internal light don't work. I had a look at the car manual and it told me that all these and the cigar lighter are on the same fuse. The strange thing is, I've checked the fuse and its fine and the cigar lighter is still working.

If anyone has any ideas what could be wrong please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the push in the right direction,

    I had a look at the dome fuse on Saturday and it had burnt out, I've now replaced it and everything works fine again.

    Thanks again for the suggestion.

    Look for a burnt Dome fuse; please advise if you find it burnt.

check the fuses again, sometimes they blow right after you install them.
there may be a short in the wiring causing them to pop.

Hi , i have toyota corola 2006 model I have problem with dash bord clock light - bulb not working kindly advice what cani do thanks .. amer f

The fuse in postion 32 (15 Amp) in the box under the dash by the steering wheel also powers your cigarette lighter and radio also powers the clock. If only the clock is dead then it is not a fuse issue. This is a very common problem with the 96-05 Corolla clocks. The clocks are very prone to internal failure.
