I figured out that it was just a blown fuse after all the work of pulling the light bulbs. Changing the fuse for the radio fixed the interior light problem go figure.

I'll try to give you something worthwhile. It sounds to me that the wires from the radio (mainly the clock) because it always has power to it, whether the car is running or not, came into contact with the wiring to the floor panel lights. That would put out the radio, clock and heat/ac panel out of commission. It would also give power to the floor panel lights, because of the power wire from the clock (memory). Just a thought though. I really hope that I could help in some way. Maybe just help get rid of one more posibility. Would be one less thing it could be. Yet, I really hope it's a fix-ya. Good luck and best wishes to you all. Bryon

Radio has no sound, not the fuse as the lights are lighting up on radio or cd but no noise what so ever...just quit??? Went to turn car off and thought I hit some type of mute button by mistake...I have no...

Make sure and check both fuses.There are usually 2 for the radio.One for clock and lighting and one for power.There is a fuse panel on the passengers side also.So there is one fuse panel on the left side of the instrument panel and one on the right.One fuse is in the left and the power fuse is on the right side panel.Hope this helps.Good luck.

The radio and the clock from tacoma 2002 did not

On most vehicle the fuse for the clock will be the same as the interior dome light. As for the radio should be a 10 amp fuse (red). Usually found on the interior fuse panel for both.

1997 Toyota 4 whl. Drive/6 cylinder..clock & radio light problem?

The clock unit is just defective and needs replaced. It is pretty common on these 3rd gen (96-02 Runners) -they are not cheap so many folks have just given up on them. is a good place to look for one or a local junk yard if you need to replace it. While you have the dash apart for the clock then ...

Your radio issue is likely in the unit itself-and replacing the radio head unit with a more modern unit would likely be around the same cost as any fix of the old unit. Since many car stereo outlets install for free your only limitation is how much you choose to spend or the features needed. I seriously doubt Toyota can fix your light in the old stereo for any less than a new radio itself....but of course call the dealership and ask to be sure before you go spending big money....
