Question about 1996 Toyota Tacoma
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
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
