    Hi, Pete. Thanks I will check for power at the fuse location. Thank you for your help!

    I checked for power at the fuse. There is no power. That's a good sign. There must be an open or a faulty device that is possibly causing the problem. Any clue about the whereabouts of the relays for these devices (again not sure is there is individual relays for the radio, clock and dome light).

    Is the open near the fuse box? I assume that the power comes from the battery and then goes to the fuse. The battery and fuse are adjacent to each other. So I assume that there's an open within a foot or two of the fuse?

    There are two groups of wires in a harness under the fuse.box I assume that the wire between the the fuse box and the battery is within one of those bundles?

    I removed the 20 amp "dome light" fuse, and started the car. With the car running I checked for power at the fuse location. No power. Does that mean I have a break between the battery and fuse?



    Next I pulled out the radio and inserted a wire between pin 3 & 4 on the rear connector. I then reinstalled the radio. When the car is running power is now flowing over the "dome light" wire. As a result all items on that wire are now working!

    This is a temporary solution. The memory on the clock and radio resets when the engine shuts down.



    Wiring within the car behind the instrument panel.seems to be OK.

    With the car running I checked for power at the fuse location. Still no power.

    No power coming from the instrument panel.

    Plus no power from the battery.

    Does that mean I have two broken wires?

Hi, I'm Peter, Do you have power to the fuse? Use a test light or meter. It is possible he may have cut the wire into when ever he remove the alarm. If you have power to the fuse and the fuse is good you need to look for a ground wire that he may have taken loose when he removed the alarm system and didn't bother to hook the ground back. Check also for a relay that may affect these. On my cay there is an illumination fuse that affects all of those and it also is tied into the headlights but you would not know it without removing the entire fuse box and running continuity checks on everything. You may be surprised at how many different things are tied together . Hope this gives you a starting point.

    Great we have a place to start I just got on here for a second to check my mail before going to Church for a while. When I get back I will look for a wiring schematic and trace the wiring.. The power will actuall be fed by the ignition switch then to a fuse or relay when there is not a computer involved if there is a computer then the sytems will distribute via that. I'll be able to tell more when I get back and get a schematic. Did you find a fuse that says Illum. that is another one tied into those systems. On older vehicles whenever you had these systems go out your cigarette lighter and sometimes the car horn would also go out. Might not be a bad idea to check to see if it works. There is also a horn relay if the horn is not working but again I am going off general wiring concepts and will have to refer to the actual diagram when I get back , Goota go but check to see if those other systems are working also.

    ust saw something the domelight fuse ( located under the hood ) on a corrolla controls ALL THREE DOME ,RADIO,and CLOCK. It's a Toyota also so I would look under the hood for a fuse box and a dome light fuse . NOW, I'm gone to Church my wife is yelling at me.Add a Comment

    Sorry so Late Charlie, It's 12:30AM and I have to get up at 5:30 to get kids ready for school. But here is a link to a manual for your car Check pages 101, 100, etc. It has everything I'll try to get back to you in the morn.

    Also check I believe it is page 119. It shows there is a fuse for the radio and domelight together. I tried just copying and pasting the picture but this fixya program is a problem even when I try to download documents or pictures , sometimes it will and others it won't, but you have the whole manual now from that websight.

    Ok Thanks. I see diagram. To recap, there's no power at the fuse location. Note: The lighter is powered and working. Could there be an open around connector "H2"?. What is a short pin?

  • Peter
    Peter Apr 24, 2014

    Possible, from my take on their term of a short pin they are refering to the connector it's self. The connector being literally short or small. This is a term that they have apparently been using to try to identify the connector. The more up to date wiring that I have delt with actually have a number and sometimes color on the wiring and the connectors are marked as well as the pin holes on the connector is numbered to eliminate any confusion. On some older cars and I will say it even on my wife's 2003 Kia Sorento they just have colors. Normally if a wire ( NOT ALWAYS) is a solid color, unless all black it will be either a powere source or a data line and the wires with a main color and a black stripe will be the grounded or completion side of the circuit. There are exceptions however MOST manufacturers are trying to conform to a standard rule of thumb which you will see as more that is common in the wiring of stero systems. On Stero's Normally you will have one color for the right front speaker with the same color but with a black stripe that is the say negative side of the speaker. Lefrt front, right rear and left rear will all be different colors as well as the Amp supply lines if your radio has that option. I have to pull up the diagram and try to go over it for further detail. There may be more than one problem so we do have to tale that into consideration as well. Did you check the horn or find any other device that is not working?

  • charlie Bergman
    charlie Bergman Apr 24, 2014

    The horn works along with the all power items (seats, windows, mirror, moon roof, A/C, door locks). Also the head, rear, backup, turning lights and the light in the glove compartment works.

    ARRRGGGG I just hit the dadgum x button and erased everything I had written!!!!**!&*!^!%%!&. I hate the way they have that set up on the end like that I usually try to copy and paste to save it just in case but I forgot because I was so sleepy. I'll do the short version.... Page 102 gives you the diagram of the dome light. The battery wire supply for voltage comes in underneath the fuse box with the 20 amp fuse. There is a short link which is basically a jumper between the feed pole of the fuse holder an one or more other devices which could also be where the voltage for your radio comes from,, Take the jumper out that you put in and put a jumper wire from the + side of the battery then put the fuse back in to hold the wire in place. Let's see if it works, If it does great we know for sure that the power supply wire and possibly the short pin underneath( most likely sealed inside the fuse box) or the wire where it goes into the connector has a connection loose/open. At this point if all the stff incding the radio works you can either choose to leave that jumper in place or unbolt the fuse box to check the wire and connector. This may be difficult because the wire may or maynot be directly below the connector so you would have to use a multimeter to find which wire it is. If it is a wire loose in the connector you can repair that by using a release tool to get the metal connector loose from the plastic holder connector. It is a little lock in there that is basically a small piece of springy metal that can be pushed down to release it. I have used a large leather sewing needle, an o ring pick, and the official plastic release tool which are cheap. Before I did all of that I would make sure and test the wire to make sure it has voltage if not I would just run a new one with a new connector and connect it to the power lug of the fuse box. If it is internal where you can't get to the broken connection you can either order another fuse box and go to all the trouble of fighting the connectors on the bottom9some times it is not that bad though) and fix it OEM or I would just leave the jumper on the 20 amp fuse. I said earlier to run it to the battery + side , I meant to say there is a power lug that has maybe an 10 gauge wire coming from the battery and you could just put an eye connector on the jumper wire and put it under the power lug nut and the other end to the supply side then put the cover back on and no one could tell the difference.. If after you suppy voltage to the fuse like that and nothing still works the I would look at the intergration relay. If the light works and the radio doesn't I would try the same thing with it. Page 101 has another wiring set up and there are a couple of relays you can check. Let me know and good luck. Got to go to bed.

    Don't forget that if you downloaded the wiring diagram I sent you then you can enlarge the picture or if you want to turn the piture just go to the top of the page to view and click hover down until rotation options show the click the way you want to rotate the picture. Good Luck.

SOURCE: camry power windows not workingbut fuses ok

Did you check fuses with a test light? If not try that first fuses can look good but still be blown. Also this will tell you if you are getting current to the fuses. If no current check fuse links and fuses under the hood. It Sounds like a no current problem. Let me know how you make out and if you are still stuck let me know the results and we will go from there. Good luck.

Had this before and i found a fault on the fuse board ,no supply the printed circuit maybe as i didnt go any further i just looped it from another fuse that had power via ignition switch through the radio fuse and it all worked but the fuse for the radio wasnt the one i looped as that had power for the memory it was another one that done the interior light and a thin bit of telephone wire done the trick so check all the fuses for power ,pull them out and check with a little 12v screwdriver light thing from the chinese shop ,right star trek is about to start goodnight

Most have a fuse block under the hood and one under or at the driver side of the dash....It probably wont be in plain sight without removing a plastic shield...check owners manual for the location.They seem to always put them in a good hidden place away from any danger to the fuses.If you dont have a owners manual I would call kia dealer and ask for location.

The radio/clock dash light on my 2004 matrix are out! ...solution?


The 15 amp dome fuse is in the fuse box under the hood and the 15 amp CIG fuse is in the lower finish panel up under the dash on the drivers side. These are needed for the radio. The above fuses plus the 15 amp Gauge fuse in the box with the dome fuse under the hood are needed for the clock.

I also have clock removal instructions at my website www.autoclockrepair.com
