    fuses can look good and be bad--test each one with a lite sold at stores--also the wiring from the box to the car harness cud hav a flaw-test that also for amperage flow

I think I would start with checking the key switch for power.

    but would the clock isnt even working, would the key switch affect that?

    I'm pretty sure the clock display gets power from the inside fuse box which gets power from the key switch. The clock comes on when you turn the key on.

  • bronson p Dec 13, 2012

    and how would i go about testing that?

  •  Stephen

    If you are asking how to test the key switch, you would need a wiring diagram (shop manual or repair book) to know which wires should be hot with the key on.

take out the lighter socket and you wil see a plastic piece on the end of the harness that connects to the socket. Pry it open with a small screwdriver BE Careful there are 2 small pieces in there. If they are not connected with solder, that is the problem. You will have to solder them back again and then test with volt tester to make sure you have juice. That should solve it.

SOURCE: my radio and clock isn't working what should I do

you have a blown fuse.
it probably wont be 75amps that is a ridiculous amount of power for anything in a 90 accord, that is probably your Master or Mega fuse which is the main bus for every electric thing in your car. (my car has 150amp mega fuse 95 tbird) Locate a 10 or 15 amp fuse that is blown and replace it. there may be a second fuse block inside the car above the pedals or above where the glove compartment is under the dash.

The owners manual has the fuse diagrams. The Radio code is there so if anyone steals your radio, it is inoperative, so it takes out the incentive to steal it. There is a box under the hood.

Need to locate the main relay for the interior fuse box


I'm not familiar with the car or location of relays. But if all circuits are live under the hood and dead inside I would trace the main wiring harness to where it enters the firewall and disconect it and check for corrosion,broken or heat damaged wires and terminals.

Have a 2001 camry & the clock & lighter went out. Sounds like a fuse but I don't know where the fuse block is or what the fuse number is or if the problem is even related. ...


Here's a couple of lifts from the toyota forum:-

1) I think the coin box is the one to the left of the steering wheel. Squeeze the sides after opening it if I remember correctly. Should be others under the hood.

2) It was behind the coin box. I found the fuse for the radio, clock and replaced it and all is well.

Where is the fuse box for 1996 toyota camry? There are several fuse boxes. one is on the lower left side of the stearing wheel (by where you pop the hood) and the other two are under the hood, on the drivers side by the battery.

Most cars have a fuse diagram on the inside of the fuse box cover.

My 2000 5.7 z71 tahoe has no power any where to the vehicle the remote wont even open locks also no power when key is in ignition absolutely dead in the water!!!!


First and foremost, check the cars battery. Take to an auto parts store to have it tested. The other issue could be fuses. Check every single one. There is a fuse block under the hood near the battery. The other one is in the side of the dash on the left side. From experience I learned that there are more functions for one particular fuse than what is shown on the panel. Example... in my 1996 Tahoe, the fuse that controls the inside lights also controls the power mirriors. Everything is different so refer to an owners manual. Beyond checking the battery and fuses, if that doesn't work then have a dealership look at it.

My 1991 VW Cabriolet just had the power windows go out, and I've figured out the interior lights, cigarette lighter, and radio are also out. This appeared to be simple to fix at first, as Fuse Number 3 is...


If i were you i would check to make sure nothing is in the cigarette lighter causing a dead short. i know my kids have put pennies, and dimes in mine before, will blow it in a hearbeat, cant even get the fuse all the way in without it blowing. as far as the windows go??? id see about that problem first, maybe they are linked together somehow, but i can tell you one thing, the power windows do have a power window relay, most likely under the hood in the fuse panel... sometimes they are in the fuse panel by the dash inside.. if its the one inside you will be looking for a little aluminum looking fuse that will be bigger than the normal fuses in there, there will most likely be 2 of them.
hope this helps you out.

I have 1999 360 where is the fuse block? Also the airbag light is on as well refill window washer even thou ist full.


the level in the washer resevoir is either stuck or burned out. replace that sensor. the air bag light will have to be scanned for codes and figure out which circuit is malfunctioning. its been a while but the easiest places to check are under the dash inside the panels, inside the centre console, or behind the glove compartment. as far as the airbag light, check to see if the horn works. if the "clock spring" is faulty, this controls on the steering wheel will not work. let me know.

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.
