Question about Cars & Trucks
Tis was installed aftermarket and the unit doesn't power up but I can get it to work outside the car. Any idea where an in line fuse might be located
Most installers put the fuse in your fuse block a wire coming from an empty fuse port or tied in to another fuse such as radio or exs.

The easiest way is to check around the battery for after-market wiring. If there's no aftermarket stuff hooked up to the battery, someone may have forgotten to re-hook it back up, and it may have fallen to the side of the battery.
The other option is to actually follow the wire, starting from the Visteon and going back. Look toward the trim around the windshield. The installers were headed for the battery, so head to whichever side your battery is on. Remove the trim for a better look if necessary. OEM harnesses are usually encased in black plastic or tape, so the after market wires should stand out. Follow them to the engine compartment.
Be aware of correct polarity when hooking the wires up! The wire with the fuse in-line will be the positive (+) one.
Hope that helps.
Good luck! :)

SOURCE: 2005 Toyota Corolla Radio fuse
Pg. 250 of your 2005 Owner's Manual shows the location of the Fuse Boxes. There is one under your hood on the driver's side and the other is under the dash just to the left of steering wheel. Pg 272, will show you how to replace the fuses. Pg. 286-287 gives a diagram and description of each fuse and what part of the electrical system it enables.
This portion of the electrical system correspondeds to the fuse in position 32 on pg. 287 of the manual.
Your going to have to get on your back with a flashlight and open up the fuse box under the dash by the steering wheel. The lid of the fuse box shows the positions of the fuse and their amperage rating. Like I said, replace the fuse in postion 32 (15 Amp). There is a spare 15 Amp fuse in the fuse box under the hood (easy to get to, see the diagrams in the owner's manual). There is also a fuse puller tool next to the spare fuses.

See toyota technical service bulliten AC005-99.
This is a expensive repair but if you just unplug the the air inlet servo motor(behind the glove box )
the air should start to work but without fresh/recirc control.

I had the same thing happen...I already had the rear door taken apart because the latch mechanism had failed and I was replacing that (not too bad a job: $100 part and 2 hours)...while I had the door apart I tried tapping on the window motor with hammer to get it working again...that did not seem to do anything. I then started looking at fuses.. There are 3 fuse boxes under the hood, and 1 panel by the driver's left knee. The top left fuse in the driver's left knee fuse box was labeled "TAIL". I pulled that one and even though it was not burned through...it looked a little funny (had some discoloration on the contacts like it had been getting hot). I replaced that and then shut the rear door and started up the engine. What do you know..everything works. I think it was likely the fuse...but who knows. Maybe this will work for someone else too.
