Question about 2002 Toyota 4Runner

Open Question

Well.... I thought installing a new aftermarket radio on my 2002 4runner would be easy..... Well it went in great and CD player sounds great, however I noticed it would NOT scan radion stations like the factory radio. After looking through the windshield, I noticed the power antenna was DOWN.... Then realized there were 2 seperate antenna plugs in the dash but the new radio only utilizes the larger one. Is the smaller one for the power antenna? And how the world am I supposed to hook it up to the new radio if there is no input for it?..... Please help ASAP

SOURCE: aftermarket stereo wiring harness does not fit oem

Theres a standard amongst most stereos, so if these colors apply, then you will be right,
Red is Ignition power
orange is direct power
Black is earth
blue is for phone
White is for electric arial
then there will be four coloured wires with matching color trace wires, these are the speaker wires.
Hope this gets you going, good luck.

SOURCE: I'm looking for the indash clock wire connection

There is 1 fuse for the clock: If your audio system is working then that fuse is OK (instrument panel 18 15 amp fuse). Check it out just to be safe, you never know. If the fuse is OK then the clock itself has gone bad. I've heard of this happening after radio installs, no idea why. Anyway, I have clock removal instructions at www.autoclockrepair.com. I also offer a very affordable repair service with a lifetime guarantee.

Factory radio wont work


Make sure the wires for the new radio are color to color when installing it in your vehicle aka the wires behind the CD player. Make sure all of them have connectors not the black tape cause it will melt and could cause a fire.

Find a test light and probe your wires you are trying to hook into. You should have one that stays hot, or has power all of the time, and one that only has power when the key is in the on or acc position. Hook the new radio memory power to the one that is hot all of the time and the main power to the one that only has power when the key is on.

Car radio, power locks, interior lights do not work. Headlights will only come on if car is started. Everything worked fine until aftermarket cd player installation was attempted. RCA jack looking thing...


You folks never learn, you can't use just any aftermarket sound system in these newer vehicles. The electronics are all networked together. I have no idea what you have damaged.

Thebestplayert@269My Factory Radio display has stop working.But it still plays sound.Can i replace this with an aftermarket stereo or do i need to buy the same stereo that is in it now?


First make sure the key is pushed all the way in the ignition, I have had other cars that if the key was not pushed in all the way the radio display would not work. If this is not the problem, I would replace the radio with an updated aftermarket radio/cd/mp3 player. I have a newer Grand Marquis and the radio went out so I priced used replacement radios and they cost as much as an aftermarket radio. You can find these at any car salvage yard (junk yard). A used radio would be easier to install as you would just have to plug it in using the same cables in the back. To install an aftermarket radio you will need one or two adapter cables and will require splicing wires. I have installed quite a few radios and I opted to do it myself. You can have the radio installed by a dealer but installation cost run from $75.00 to $125.00 depending on type of car and radio. If choosing an aftermarket radio make sure the look will fit the car. You may not like the look of something with widly glowing LED lights a few month down the road. I am very pleased with the unit I purchased as it looks more like an OEM radio and doesn't shout steal me at car thieves. I can play mp3's and plug in both ipods and other compatible electronics.

Radio/cd player went dead. Tried replacing fuses


Do NOT Cut and Splice. Your local parts store sells an aftermarket radio plug in which connects to your factory harness and then you can splice in your radio into the new connectors ends that are labeled for what they go to.

CD PLAYER WORKS BUT THE RADIO WONT PLAY


There is a problem with the audio output circuits of the radio. The easy way to fix it is to buy an aftermarket radio or get a used radio from a salvage yard or eBay.

Wiring for the 97 Intrepid radio


Do yourself a big favor & buy the adapter plug for the harness, that converts your Chrysler harness to easy install of aftermarket stereo. Any autoparts or audio store should have them.
