    I have had the same problem with two Ford ZX2s. Mine is a 2001 with the stock radio system. I had a terrible time getting it reconnected, but in the end i was finally able to after scratching and pinching my fingers countless times. My niece has a 1999 ZX2, hers has a aftermarket radio with a aftermarket faceplate. It was connected when she first got the car, but for some reason i needed to take the radio out. when i went to put it back in i found this one was even worse than with the stock radio. i never did get it connected again.
    Here is one solution if you cant get it connected. . There is a white dial on the end of the cable. Summertime when you want air conditioning take your radio out and turn that knob until you start getting cold air blowing. Then when winter comes take it all back apart and turn it back the other way for heat and so on.
    A silly solution but all i could come up with.
    Did you ever find a way of fixing yours?

Sounds as if you may have failed to reconnect some wiring. If not, security system may need to be re-set. I don't know how to do that on your car, sorry. Are you absolutely sure you have a good battery connection? Clean all cables to battery and retry.

What are radio codes?


  • It an electronic security code for the radio that avoids radios being stolen from cars because then they will not work once power to them is disconnected due to either their removal, disconnection of the car battery or a flat car battery.
  • Once the radio has lost it's power source it cannot be operated until power is reconnected and the code is punched into the radio using the radio controls. The code for each radio is different and is supplied with the car when new. If you do not have the code you need to contact the service department of the new car dealer that sells that brand of car who will likely charge you a fee to look it up for you if the records are still held.

How to replace light bulb on a clock 2004 Honda Odessey


Here are the steps:

1. Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
2. Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
3. Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.

Here are the details:

FIRST - Disconnect the battery. Be careful to locate the radio security code and radio station memory locations before you disconnect though. I chose to disconnect the ground (black wire) from the battery. Be careful to put the cable away from the battery terminal.



Step 1: Undo the panels to the left and right of the steering column.
a. Put on your parking break. You'll want to prevent the car from moving because you will soon put the car in gear.
b. Put your keys and turn to the starting position (but don't try to start the car). This allows the gear lever to move.
c. Move the gear shift to lowest gear. This puts the gear shift lever to a place nearly out of the way of the panel so that you can pry it out.
d. Using bare hands, pull smartly on the plastic edge closest to the steering wheel. Pry out the panels by hand as they are both held by tabs. This is hardest to do the first time. Keep in mind that these are pieces of plastic, so be careful. Once panels are out, let them dangle. You only need access to the instrument panel screws.

Step 2: Remove the panel that encloses the instrument cluster.
e. Remove the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.
o Two on left of steering wheel
o Two on top of instrument cluster (upside-down)
o Four on right side of steering wheel
f. Wiggle/pry out the instrument cluster panel. Be careful as the center is held in stronger than the sides. In addition to screws, there are different tabs that assist in holding this in place.
g. Before removing the instrument cluster panel, disconnect the clock and emergency light electrical connectors. While the clock connector disconnects easily, the emergency light has a locking tab that needs to be pushed in to disconnect. I used a small screwdriver to push in the tab to get the connector to disconnect.
h. Remove the instrument panel. Turn it over and locate the clock's protective cover.
i. Open the clock's protective cover by loosening the tabs. Be very gentle to these tabs.
j. Once the cover is removed locate the light bulb.

Step 3: Replace the light bulb located on the back of the panel (removed in step 2).
k. Unscrew the light bulb and remove.
l. Install the new light bulb. Check the light bulb before you install it. Be careful when rotating the new light bulb. in place. I've read in other posts that the light bulbs are VERY sensitive. I used a small screwdriver with plastic on the head to screw the light bulb. in.
m. Replace the clock's protective cover.
o. Reconnect the clock and emergency light's electrical connectors.

Step 4. Reinstall the instrument panel (removed in step 2).
p. Fit the instrument cluster panel back into it's original position. Be careful with the fan vents. I suggest aligning the fan vents first, then fitting the panel.
q. Screw in the 8 screws that keep the instrument cluster panel in place.

Step 5. Reinstall the panels on the left and right of the steering column.
r. Push both panels back into place.
s. Move the gear shift lever back to park.
t. Remove the car key.
u. [Optional - disengage the parking brake]

LAST - Reconnect the battery.

TEST - Reinsert your keys and turn them to the starting position (but don't start the car). The clock light should light up.

Note: Because the power has been reset, you will need to enter the factory stereo code and reset your radio stations.

How do i change heater control lamp


heater lamp- set the fan sped knob to #2 position, and pull the knob off. It might fight ya and you might have to use both hands... no joke. Once the knob is off you'll see the bulb in there. maybe it just fell out of the socket?? If you have it around, use a piece of vaccuum line, 1/4" I think to extract the little bugger

Radio removal on a 2004 toyota prerunner.


  1. Remove all of the temperature control knobs, including the A/C button (95-00 models).Using a small hook or a flat-head screwdriver, carefully pull the control panel straight out. It will pop out with a slight tug.
  2. Remove two phillips head screws from behind temperature control panel.
  3. Remove ashtray and remove the phillips head screw on upper right side.
  4. Carefully remove center black dash molding. This can be easily done by grabbing the plastic between the vents and the temperature controls and pulling toward you and slightly down. It will pop out with a slight tug.
Follow steps 1-4 - once you get the black trim plate off, the stock radio is held in place by 4 nut/screws. - remove the nut/screws - pull the stock radio out - disconnect the harness - disconnect the antenna - disconnect any auxiliary input devices (i.e. cd changer) if you have them.
When you go to put your new deck in, just follow these steps in reverse.

Unless you Have AoolCodes DEALER IS A GOOD IDEA




Disconnecting/Connecting The Battery

Always stop the engine before disconnecting the battery negative lead and make sure the battery positive lead is isolated i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth.

WARNING: Radio code saving devices must not be used when conducting work on air bag or fuel systems. It must be noted that, when using these devices, the vehicle electrical system is still live albeit with a reduced current flow.

NOTE: Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes are known and, that no data is required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held in the Keep Alive Memory (KAM). It is not necessary to disconnect or remove electronic control modules.

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require:
  • The vehicle to be jacked up
  • Work on the engine
  • Work underneath the vehicle
  • Arc welding
Alternatively a Radio Code Saver may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

Reconnecting the Battery

WARNING: If the battery has been on bench charge the cells may be giving off explosive hydrogen gas. Avoid creating sparks, and if in doubt cover the vent plugs or covers with a damp cloth.

Always make sure that all electrical systems are switched OFF before reconnecting the battery to avoid causing sparks or damage to sensitive electrical equipment.

Always reconnect the battery positive lead first and the negative last, ensuring that there is a good electrical contact and the battery terminals are secure.

Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time.

Re-enter the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player keycodes and preset' frequencies, if known.

Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the powertrain control module have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes . Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the powertrain control module to relearn idle values.

T30 vw ( the radio and number plate lighs stay on when when locking with key pod


If the radio has ever been removed and replaced with after market radio, and the factory radio was reinstalled, the wiring is incorrect. Also, make sure the ignition wire, and constant 12v wires are not connected together somehow.
