Question about 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.
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.
