Question about 2000 Toyota 4Runner
All the lights in the radio have been flickering for two weeks. Now are out. All other dash lights ok.
Took radio out and removed front plate. It appears that every button on the radio pane is lit with an individual LED. Since all are out, maybe there is a fuse or central light controller.
I am not a skilled electrictonic technician so this is as far as I can go.
Is my best option finding a replacement at a salvage yard?
FIXED MINE! My 2000 Sienna XLE had the same problem with the lights not working. They would flicker on once in a while. I took off the face plate, cleaned the radio with a "can of air" to remove any dust, put electrical grease on the face plate contacts and the plugs on the back of the radio. Reassembled and the lights worked better, but dim and flickered off a bit. Knocked on it a few times on the side to get those contacts to work better and it is now working. My guess is the contacts on the faceplate were not making good contact. If I had to do it again, I would pull on and off the face plate a few times after installing the electrical grease to help loosen up any corrosion for a better connection. That would probably eliminate the need to beat on the side of the radio after reassembling. This fixed mine. Hope it works for you.
