Question about 2005 Toyota Matrix
I have a 2005 Matrix XR, auto transmission, the shifter doesn't light up so at night when I drive I have to turn the reader light in order to change shift. Also I have the same clock going in and out problem as well. Does anyone know what the problem is??
I took my 05 matrix in to the dealership today because my srs airbag light had been coming on and off for the past month. After the dealership tried charging me $90.00 to diagnose the airbag problem(which i refused to pay and won) they gave me obd code B1660. I googled this code and came up with a website matrixowners.com(this site for some reason doesn't open) but on the preview it does show. "They found code B1660 CK SYSTEM and found a bad passenger air bag indicator which is part of the clock assembly. They want 3 bills plus labor for the clock. ..." my only conclusion is that I just figured out why my clock has been coming in and out for the past year or so. I suggest if you have this clock problem you should check your air bag system and don't pay the fee to diagnose the air bag system. Your car should not have a malfunction if the air bag system if it has never been involved in an accident or modified. It is a safety issue and the air bag system should have a lifetime warranty.

When you drive with the light on you are using more power than if you leave the light off and maybe thats what is causing the problem? is the clock controlled by a light sensing dome up near the bottom of the windshield?

If you are having problems with your Matrix Clock module, you can have it refurbished at subaru-clock.com. The refurbishment will fix errant airbag fault indication, as well as the intermittent clock display problem. The refurbishment fee is a fraction of the price of a new module.
