Clock and Shifter Lights Not Working 2005 Toyota Matrix

My clock on my 05 Matrix goes in and out.. mostly out... checked all fuses.. all were okay... still problem exists. Now lights on shifter not working.. all other interior lights work fine.. is this the sign of a larger electrical problem or is there a mystery fuse box that I don't see.

    Just yesterday I noticed that my clock went out. The air bag indicator is still working. The clock came back to life today and then faded to black again. I know it is staying connected to power due to the fact that the time was still correct. Any suggestions?? Mine is a 2006 XR

I took my 05 matrix in to the dealership today because my srs airbag light had been coming on and off for the past month. After the dealership tried charging me $90.00 to diagnose the airbag problem(which i refused to pay and won) they gave me obd code B1660. I googled this code and came up with a website matrixowners.com(this site for some reason doesn't open) but on the preview it does show. "They found code B1660 CK SYSTEM and found a bad passenger air bag indicator which is part of the clock assembly. They want 3 bills plus labor for the clock. ..." my only conclusion is that I just figured out why my clock has been coming in and out for the past year or so. I suggest if you have this clock problem you should check your air bag system and don't pay the fee to diagnose the air bag system. Your car should not have a malfunction if the air bag system if it has never been involved in an accident or modified. It is a safety issue and the air bag system should have a lifetime warranty.

Many of the Toyota models have clocks in them that will fail over time and give the same intermittent fault you describe. The least expensive solution is to remove the clock and send it in for refurbishment to Dr. Clock (www.subaru-clock.com). He charges a nominal fee and the refurbishment comes with a nice warranty.

Janinamaries is refering to a clockspring, which is a ribbon wire cable in the steering wheel. It is part of the airbag system and has nothing to do with the time clock problem. Soo soo subaroo has the answer.

    I just received the same info for my 05 Matrix with the code 1660 for faulty airbag light. The dealer says the airbag switch is integrated with the clock on the dash and it's $300+ for the repair. This has been an on & off issue for years that they say they couldn't detect becaus the light wouldn't come on when I brought it to the dealer.

Shifter locked in park, Radio, odometerm heater/AC fan, directional, brake lights, clock not working.


IT most likely is a relay switch in your fuse box or engine compartment.check the manual to locate it.

Clock goes off


This is a common problem with the Matrix. It is most likely a fault with the clock module itself. It can be repaired for a reasonable price at www.subaru-clock.com

Replaced fuses in my 06 Matrix. Radio and clock are still dead.


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses and also the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.
So...since both are dead it is likely to be 1 of the first 2 fuses mentioned.
