Question about 1996 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

Radio, clock, cigarette lighters not working

I recently installed a new radio deck, which has been working perfectly for a few months now. but yesterday, for no reason, my radio, factory clock, and cigarrette lighters/12v outputs all refuse to work. for some reason, the check engine light also came on after i fiddled around with the fuses for a while, but then it went off after i filled up my tank with gas??
any ideas? where is the exact fuse location for these? (lighters, radio, clock.)
i have an 06 tacoma and everything else seems to be working beautifully as far as i can tell

    ok you are talking about the fuse box under the hood right? i checked all the fuses in there and the 10 amp radio one was indeed blown, i replaced it but everything still doesnt work, and the new fuse is still fine. every fuse i could find is working fine in that box. any other ideas?

All on the same circuit. radio has two power supplys, one when the key on, and one all the time. aftermarket decks draw alot more than factory and this circuit may not be able to handle the extra load. look in owners manual and look in engine and interior fuse panels. it may say memory,clock,ecm keep alive etc. if need be check them all one is failed. now as for the engine light, most obdII vehicles use this circuit to keep computer memory alive... it will set a code for voltage lost. if you know your not overloaded or have a short, then its safe to go up to next size fuse,2.5 or 5 amp heavier. but thats it. if keeps happening you have a short or you may have to run a dedicated feed circuit for the deck. good luck youll find it

    check in the interior panel for a second fuse, also your aftermarket deck has one of its own in the back of the unit, if just the radio now will not work i'd check that. its always possible to have burnt a wire apart somewhere, usually at a connection. look hard at fuse, they can look good and be bad. let me know

Radio,clock cigarette lighter


lighter will most probably be on its own fuse, which in your case is blown.
radio and clock will probably be on the same fuse, which has blown.
Its important to remember that most radios have their own fuse which is found at the back of the radio.(radio will have to be removed) but try the easy fuse first (in the fuse panel

replace the bulb in the overhead light. the light cover should just pull off (may be a small clip to free it, flathead screwdriver )

Check these two fuses. Fuse number 31 in fuse box location 4, if cigarette lighter, radio and clock. Else fuse number 5 in fuse box location 2, if only radio and clock and not cigarette lighter.

probably the fuse that powers the cigarette lighter also powers the radio so check the cigarette lighter and socket for a short and replace the fuse.

My radio fuse keeps blowing out


Wish this one could be simple...what changes have you made recently? If you changed the radio or cigarette lighter, the new one could have a short in it...first try disconnecting (unplug the lighter) and retry...if still blows fuse, re-connect the lighter, and disconnect the new radio...if this does not point out the problem...inspect all wires for a missing section of insulation. You should also re-insulate all the connections that you made in the install...Hope this helps.

Radio does not turn on. the clock shows,the light


The memory wire of the radio,(the power for the clock and channel settings) is usually connected to the same circuit as the cigarette lighter. (there is a seperate fuse for radio) Check your cigarette lighter socket for damage or dirt, etc. could be causing the memory fuse to blow. Also check your cig lighter accesories (like cell phone chargers,etc.)

P.S. The backlight is also a seperate circuit (connected to interior light/parking light circuit)

Radio, cigarette lighter, clock display went out on my '03 Toyota tundra. 20 amp radio fuse looks ok. Are there any other fuses I should check out? Thanks. TD


Under the hood there is some. Not sure about your application, but it might control interior stuff too. It will be a bigger amperage than normally inside the car though
