Question about 1995 Toyota Tacoma

2 Answers

I am installing a new radio/CD deck in 1995 tacoma.

I can't get past the trim that surrounds the existing radio, air vents, etc. What's the trick? I have to pull the trim off in order to get to the screws that hold the radio on its frame and secures to the chassis.

    Advice kept me from ripping off the trim around the radio so it was very helpful.

To access the trim cover screws, you first have to remove the knobs on the fan control levers. Then, with a key or flat bladed screw driver, pull the plastic cover out. The screws are behind this plastic cover.

How do you get the stock radio deck out of a 1991 buick park avenue?


*It's a bit tricky but not difficult, if you know how the dash in the Park Avenue is put together. But before you do anything, safety first. *Disconnect the negative cable from the battery before doing any electrical work on a car. This prevents shorting out your cars electrical system.

*If you own the 90 -91 Park Avenue model, simply pull off the decorative trim away from the radio to expose the torq screws that hold the radio into the dash. You will need a torq screwdriver of the right size to remove the radio.
Available from your local autoparts store.

*If you own the 91-92 model, it's a whole different ball game. This since the dash is much more tightly compacted. It's a combination of a snap together assembly and Torq screws. The dash is held together in columns or sections.

*The torq screws on these models are hidden behind the heater vents in the upper dash. First pry the wooden trim (Which surrounds the climate control module) on the bottom of the dash off, gently but firmly until it comes free, exposing the Torq screws on the lower dash. Remove the heater vents (hiding the upper screws ) by popping them out with a straight blade screw driver. Then remove all Torq screws visible to the eye, only from the column that is holding is holding the radio in place.

*You will then be able to remove the black colored plastic off the dash to expose the radio. (Use care when removing the lower dash column as some climate control and airbag sensors might be embedded).

*Remove all Torq screws holding the radio in place, (and keep track of all screws) pull the radio out of the dash, and disconnect electrical connectors. If you'll be replacing the stock radio with a non factory radio, make sure all electrical connection watch up, since security feature in the radio are integrated into the radio. (some of these effect basic function on your vehicle like the headlights) If you will be reinstalling the stock radio, you will have to have it unlocked by the dealership. The DelcoLoc system will now think the radio is stolen, because of it's internal security features. Installation is the reverse of removal.

Hope this helps.

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.

Radio, clock, cigarette lighters not working


all on the same circuit. radio has two power supplys, one when the key on, and one all the time. aftermarket decks draw alot more than factory and this circuit may not be able to handle the extra load. look in owners manual and look in engine and interior fuse panels. it may say memory,clock,ecm keep alive etc. if need be check them all one is failed. now as for the engine light, most obdII vehicles use this circuit to keep computer memory alive... it will set a code for voltage lost. if you know your not overloaded or have a short, then its safe to go up to next size fuse,2.5 or 5 amp heavier. but thats it. if keeps happening you have a short or you may have to run a dedicated feed circuit for the deck. good luck youll find it

Need to know the wires to install a deck for 97


Red is power to from ignition to cd deck
Yellow is direct power from battery to cd deck to hold the memory.
Black is ground
Blue is only needed if you are hooking up an amplifier.
I always suggest buying a wire harness quick connect system for $5, then you won't have to cut origional car wiring. If by chance you are taking the original wire route, then go to installer.com to find which wires on the car are for what.

HOW DO YOU REMOVE THE RADIO FROM A 1995 GEO TRACKER????????


To remove the radio:
Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them.
Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts.
With a small, long flat bladed screwdriver, pry out the leather shifter surround. The leather shifter surround has a center chrome retaining ring, the leather surround, and then finally a black plastic surround. The chrome retaining ring has 3-4 tabs which are locked in below the leather surround. It depends on the year of the Jaguar. Probably the 95 has three, but maybe four. They should be at the front and rear of the trim piece (2 front and 1 back, or 2 front and two back) but I've seen then on the sides. The point is, you have to be careful with the screwdriver and find the tabs. The screwdriver should be slid between the leather and the retainer. Pull upwards on the retainer gently, and as you loosen the tabs, it will come out.
Remove the leather surround. Once the chrome retainer has been removed, it should be easy to work it out of the console.
Loosen the black trim ring gently as it has tabs as well, but they are visible once the leather trim has been removed. Lift it upwards out of the wood trim and pull it to the side out of the way. You don't need to disconnect the wires, just lay the black trim to the side.
Lift the rear of the wood console trim and gently, gently slide it back and up. It will try to hang on the leather console, and can be difficult. Patience is important, as the walnut on the ski slope cracks easy (really easy).
Once the wood console trim (ski slope) is removed, you should have a row of screws up the side of the center control panel, where the radio and AC controls are. There are four to six on each side, depending on what Jaguar used at the time, as the 95 cars mechanically are somewhat of a blend of the XJ40 and the XJ300. Remove these screws, and note any spacers that were behind them. These spacers get lost quickly, and cause the ski slope to sit awkwardly on the console.
The radio will slide forwards once these screws are removed. Remove the radio harness and the antenna lead. As the books say, assembly is reverse of removal.
Good luck, and let me know if you have questions. If you are replacing the radio, let me know as I have the harness wiring codes and can help you with that as well.
