HI. there are shorts present within the wiring harness. I would recommend replacing the entire wiring harness, if possible. I would also check the actual fuse to be sure that there is no corrosion or connectivity issues within that particular fuse box connection that pertains to the radio unit.

Hi , this sounds like you have a couple of problems , firstly with the non starting after the engine has been running ,,, this is normally fuel pressure retension or the pre supply pump under the vehicle is faulty , the easiest way to check the pump, is when your vehicle doesn't start with the ignition lights still on , see if you can hear a buzzing noise from under the vehicle just behind the left hand front wheel , this will only prime itself for approx 20 seconds so it may be easier to have the help of someone , if you dont hear the buzzing turn the ignition off for 1 minute and switch on again , if there is no buzzing noise , replace the pre supply pump , the seccond fault with the blower motor running with the ignition off is a simple fault , this will require a replacment heater resistor , the resistor fails and drains the battery so it will cure the blower fault and the flat battery, hope this helps , regards mark

Car smoking coolant full heater works sometime doesnt show hot

If there is white smoke (coolant) coming from the exhaust then the head gasket has blown out, the reason the car doesn't show over heating is because there is no coolant going over the sensor and not enoughto circulate thru the heater core.

Temperature display "read out" led display + radio antenna

the gears in your antenna mask are plastic sometimes they get stripped. you can take the antenna out through your trunk. I got the part at the toyota dealer. Sometimes it is easier to ask one of the mechanics to put it in for you.
