The vehicle chassis ground or negative is opposite to the stereo. The aerial is vehicle chassis ground (earth), when touched to stereo results in direct short. If the Hilux is positive ( + ) chassis (earth) and the stereo is negaitive ( - ) ground, there is the short. If this is the problem, either replace with a compatable stereo or compatable vehicle.

New battery - battery is drained in the morning.Replaced voltage regulator. Disconnected aircon. Still drains overnight. Ute will start and run with full battery but it drains overnight.


Easyest thing to do is pull one cable off your battery. Start pulling fuses and each time touch the cable to the battery post. When you find one that reduces the spark drastically that is the circuit to investigate.

A rubber mallet is the trick, there is no tool. Even a stick of wood in a pinch. A soft blow or two should break the seal.

Toyota 2007 hilux ute changed battery radio does not work


Hello,

If you have an aftermarket radio there is probably a wire going directly to the battery and that wire has a fuse. These fuses are very sensitive. Fuse or Wire.
I hope this helps.

My electric aerial on my toyota hilux surf 3l automatic will not work , were can i find the fuse to stop the noise the motor keeps running as if it is trying to raise it


If you remove the plastic mud guard cowling under the wing you will be able to unplug the motor feed there. You will need to open up the spool chamber anyway as a bit of the nylon rack that pushes and pulls the antenna will have broken off and been lodged there.

Toyota should be able to sell you a new mast which simply screws on from the outside.

If there was no spark and wires hooked up wrong in the first place, your player should work if you find the PWR lead and the Remote lead and ground. Then speaker wires +) and (-
