Question about 2003 Toyota Matrix

1 Answer

Radio troubleshooting, reset maybe?

I was playing a cd the other day in my 2003 Matrix xr, I got out of the car to get the mail and when I came back (i didn't turn the car off) the factory radio was out.  The read-out for the time still works and it will eject/accept cds, but nothing else works.  I'm thinking that the anti-theft triggered for some reason and needs to be reset... unfortunately, as the second owner of this car, I do not have an owners manual.  Have you had this issue come up before and how to I get back to rockin' in the Matrix?

Toyotas have 2 power wires one for the stereo itself and another for the memory. They are connected with other accesories such as the dome lights , cigarette lighter, etc. using the same fuse circuits. check all the fuses to the accessories and the radio fuse.If all the fuses are good it is a programming problem.I don't know how to program it.

The check engine light can come on for any number of different reasons. To make a guess over the internet is at most just a wild guess. The best thing to do is to take it back to the place you bought it and have them retrieve the code(s). that way you will know what the problem is and how to proceed to fix it.

Changing spark plugs on 2004 matrix, is it something i can do at home or do i need more technical know how. if i can please explain the proceedure. thanks


Hi, the 2004 Toyota Matrix requires Iridium spark plugs, which retails for about $12 at the dealership, and it should not need to be changed until 120,000 miles.
To change the spark plug, remove the black cove off the top and they will be right there. You will probably need atleast an 8" extender to get to them becasue they don't have Spark Plug wires atleast on the 2zz-ge aka XRS Motor I do Not Know aboout The 1zz-fe AKA Matrix, XR, AWD

2006 Matrix XR Clock


The passenger airbag light keeps coming on, on my 2005 Matrix XR 4WD. I took it in to the local dealer and they said it was a problem with my clock assembly. $299 for the part and blah blah blah for the labor. I found the part (83910-02100) at http://www.partswebsite.com/pagetoyota/index.php?type=parts&start=1 for $224.95. It's still more than I want to pay, but a little cheaper.
