Question about 1989 Toyota Corolla 2 Door

Open Question

Stereo and Clock don't work

Hi there, I have a 1989 Toyota Corolla FX-Zi (well that's what the car says, rego says FX-21) 4 door hatchback. I was having the stereo replaced yesterday, and it was all connected up fine and working, but when we went to put it back in the hole where it goes, it randomly stopped working. We checked the 7.5A radio fuse, and the fuse in the stereo itself but everything looks fine, just couldn't get it to work. Next time I started the car I noticed that the clock is also no longer working. I did a bit of research but didn't find much. I can tell you, however, that cig lighter, drawer light, hazard lights are still working; and that indoor light was not working before we tried the stereo. I read some similar questions and their solution was a Dome Fuse, but I can't find a dome fuse in my car. Any help would be greatly appreciated, have a long trip to do this weekend and would love to have music for it! Cheers, Hannah

    Ok, thanks for that. I didn't know how to find a second fuse for the radio (10A) but my elect. mirrors are also not working. They stopped working before the radio was installed, however. First the right one stopped and the left would just move up or down, and then the left one stopped too. That was a week or two ago (I bought the car 2 weeks ago), and when I got it the dome light already didn't work. Is the dome fuse normally in the internal fuse block or under the hood? I'll check the fuses under the hood tomorrow, and have a look at the wires I can see.

    Any help still greatly appreciated, I'd like to try to fix it without paying heaps for someone to change a fuse if it's something like that. But if I can't or it seems to be bad wiring or whatever I'll take it in at the end of the week.

    Thanks for your help!

    radio has 2 fuses a 7.5a and a 10a,the 10a fuse is related to elect. mirrors circuit also.the int.fuse block is located drivers side kick panel,under hood fuse block is located near batt. tray.dome fuse is 7.5a fuse it is related to clock circuit.if this all quit working after radio install,i would check for bare or bad wire splices .

How to change differential oil in an 89 toyota corolla FX-25, 5 door hatchback


Hi Mathew, The 89 Corolla usually has front wheel drive and a combined gearbox and differential. If the box is a manual it uses a 65 w 70 HP oil. If it is automatic it uses ATF in the gearbox which is usually also combined, but some have separate diffs and use the 65 w 70 in the diff section. Regards John

Trying to find a key code location for 89 toyota tercel hatchback one key fits all


Hello

I did a key code search on a 1993 toyota corolla . The key code was located on the passenger front doors lock cylinder (door lock tumbler). You have to disassemble the door panel and remove the lock cylinder from the door to read the tiny numbers on the lever of the lock cylinder..I would recommend calling your local toyota dealer and confirming it is on the lock cylinder before tearing apart the door....You would have to give them the code to get a new key cut. hope this info helps..
