Question about 2004 Toyota Sequoia
When installing an aftermarket DVD/TV I connected the hot, ground and door trigger of the overhead dome light to the corresponding wires for the DVD player. This caused a short in the dome circuit. Have removed DVD wires but short still exists. Remote door locks no longer work either. Help please.
... Sorry to hear about this.
Have you checked all the fuses; to see if they are good?
I would start with checking all the fuses, the dome light bulb and burnt wires. (burnt wires will smell) If you didn't smell plastic burning while hooking up the DVD player, then you're okay. But check anyway.
If you can't solve the problems, call the Toyota service department for help. They may be nice and give you some help.

I would be concerned that you may have wired the stereo incorrectly, causing this shorting problem. I suggest that you take it to a stereo installer to check the wiring, as if it is wired correctly the stereo should at least light up with a new fuse in there. Unless the new fuse blew straight away when you put it in. The central lock is likely to be thrown off by the fact that the interior light isn't working, as it uses this input to figure out if the doors are open or shut. Check interior light fuse condition, and get the wiring you've done checked, would be my advice.

did u know that they make a harness for your car that plugs into your factory harness and then adapts to your aftermarket radio? for the lights, you have blown the interior light fuse, it may be the same fuse as the cigar lighter.Below is your radio wire colors and what they do.

SOURCE: no dome light on tacoma
The dome light gets 12 volt battery power at all times. The door switch, when the door is opened, allows the current to flow to ground, and completes the circuit. The door switch allows the ground to be made. Measure for 12 volts at the wiring connector, and measure for direct short at the ground wire, with the door open. The Ground wire is white with a black tracer.
