You have a combined cb radio with a stereo built in? these are rare enough(and mostly gone by now) but I have worked withone before and remember it recieved fine but you could not transmit at all withit..most of these would not make a sound with the squelch turned way up (to block out white static) so try turning the squelch down and setting it for fm stations if it has those in it..most were all am radios..check all connections as well, oh and some had push buttons on them, make sure they are pushed in fully before release otherwise they wil be off station.. good luck

SOURCE: Have a 2001 camry &

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.

SOURCE: Where is the fuse for power windows on 1997 Rav4?

Well the thing is, it's not a fuse issue. If the drivers side works but the passenger and rear windows do not you most likeley have a bad master window switch (drivers side front). I now that it sounds odd but the only common thing with the remaining windows that are not working is the ground source located in that main switch. You can check to see if there is a ground from that switch but this may be a litle confusing. If you are able to remove that main switch in the drivers door but leave it plugged in here is how you check for a ground. Get a test light and connect the "alligator" clip part of it to a hot (positive) wire or terminal. In the back of that plug stick the "pointy" end of the test light into different wires. The wires you will want to check is the green & red one, The blue and white one, The red and yellow one, the red and blue one, the blue and black one and the blue and red one. If none of those wires makes the light turn on it means you do not have the ground you need. You have constant power but want makes the windows go up and down in the switches is a ground. All the windows get power from the same place so that's why I say it's a grounding problem since the drivers window is working and Like I say the only common source is in that switch. I hope I didn't confuse you with this but this is the best way I can explain it to you at this point. If you have questions or need this more detailed with some pictures, email me at and I will do my best to help. No there will not be a charge if you email me. I don't mind helping and I am an automobile electronics specialist and sometimes it's hard for me to put it in plain nontechnical terms. Please remind me of your problem and what we are working on if you do write. I hope I was able to help at least a litle bit as to your problem.

SOURCE: How do I remove an aftermarket Engine Immobiliser that looks like a stereo plug that i've almost lost twice and my brother thinks it's hooked up to the fuel system I don't want the stress of almost lo

Most immobilisers on the year car 1993 and some newwer one are connected to starter wiring under the dash, and what it does is it cuts the power wire from the ignition switch in half and sends it through the module and to relay, you will need to follow the wires and you will see the wires coming down from the ignition switch, one will be cut in two and go into immobil wiring you will dissconnect them and reconnect them back together, the wire is color coded so theres no mixing wires and then the rest of the wiring will be to power and ground and so on, all these other wires can be removed or left there. once you connect the main stating wire thats the main wire, a quick thing to see if this is the way it works is to try and start the car without the chip and see if when you turn the key the engine should not try to start, it should do nothing just dash lights light up but no engine spin, if this is what happens then this is the way to dissable it. good day.

I have an in dash vehicle stereo, no power to it after changing vehicle batteries. Is there a reset button in the stereo. Model # 3L3T-18C815-AA. Fuses are fine.

Some have internal fuses some have a fuse on the back if you have wired the battery incorrect and the radio was connected to the battery terminals you have probably fried the stereo.

1991 nissan maximacharging problem. Had the alt. and the voltage regulator checked at two places and they said it was fine switched out the battery. No joy. I'm starting to think maybe a fuse or r

I don't have a diagram for a 91, but a 95 model has three fuses - the big one ( 100amp or more) a 10amp fuse for the charge light and a 7.5amp for the third circuit. There is no relay in the circuit.
The normal voltage should be 12-12.5 with the engine off and 14.5 with the engine running at 1500 RPM.

Installing stereo in chevy s10 pickup now my gauges aren't workign

Did you disconnect the stereo wires you'd hooked up and see if everything went back to normal? It's easy to connect some custom equipment to the wrong wire. Depending on the stereo you installed, there would probably be 3 wires that are battery positive at any time, and at least one ground wire. There's a wire that's "hot" all the time that provides power to keep the station memory and clock, etc., set. Then the wire that actually powers the radio when you turn it on. The other wire would be hot FROM the radio when oyu turn the radio on, and it's meant for cars that have an electric antenna so the antenna raises automatically when you turn the radio on. If you connect either one of those wires to the wrong wiring harness wire, you can have power to something at an inappropriate time. The best thing to do (without cutting the harness wires) is to use the proper power leads in the factory wiring harness. Otherwise, if you look at your truck fuse-box diagram, you should see that one fuse is marked like "constant battery". I think that will be the fuse towards the front of the truck in the very bottom row of fuses. The wire for your station memory/clock can go to that fuse. The fuse towards the BACK of the truck in that same row is "radio/ignition". THAT fuse only sends power when you turn the ignition switch on or to accessories. Use it for the radio power. If you don't have an electric antenna, don't bother with that wire. To wire straight to a fuse, you need to determine which leg of the fuse power comes in on, then strip about half an inch from the wire and wrap it around the leg of the fuse that goes in the OTHER side. That way your system is protected by the fuses. If/when all that is done, you may have blown a fuse or relay in the big box under the hood on yop of the left fender-well. Let me know if you need help still, but as this problem is 4+ months old, I imagine you fixed it already.

The battery was disconnected and now that it is connected the stereo won't work unless i put a code in and i don't know the code because i don't have a manual. i think the manual might be in...

you need to contact the manufacturer of the vehicle and tell them the vin number and they can give you the code ( you could pay a fee for this info ) this solution only works if the stereo is an original fitment to this vehicle.
