Question about 1997 Toyota 4Runner
Radio wont turn on and the antenna won't activate. my battery had been dead for about 2 weeks. recharged it recently. radio and antenna not working. checked for blown fuses, there were none. could it be a relay problem? or should i take off the terminals and reset?
The antenna relay is controlled by the radio. The 15A ACC fuse in the driver side J/B and the 15A DOME fuse in the engine room R/B control application of power. If the fuses are OK, the power loss could be occuring elsewhere.

SOURCE: 1990 camry power window problem
It is rare that the power window relay will fail. Personally, I would look to see if there is power at the master switch on the driver's door. Anywhere. If the is NO POWER, you have a broken wire between the door & the LF kick panel where the wires come thru the body into the door shell. If there is power, the master switch is narmally the culprit

Pg. 250 of your 2006 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.
I blew a fuse while using my Cigarette lighter/power outlet to inflate my tires. It took out the power to the car stereo, the clock below it, and the two Cigarette lighter/power outlets.
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.
I hope you would be able to find the radio Fuse.
Any further questions regarding replacement, feel free to contact me.
Thanks for using Fixya.

it would take about 350 hours to kill your battery at 200 ma leakage .. between the computer, radio and anything else that has "keep alive" conditions .. i would think 200ma is maybe on the high side of normal .. to kill the battery in 2 days would require a continuous drain of more than 1.5 amps .. that would be about what the trunk light or under hood light would draw .. make sure those are going off .... alternator diodes can have leakage thats very high .. of course if you are measuring the leakage current right at the battery connector then all leakage sources should be included in the reading .. if its only 200ma then you might have a bad battery (low on water or sulfated) .. Pb acid batteries are easily ruined by leaving them discharged for a while .. and the maintainence free types can only handle a few deep discharges .. .
