This is a common problem among on some of the Japanese automobiles (Toyota Matrix included) that have seen some time in service.The clock module becomes intermittent or dead after a few years of service. To remove the clock yourself and have it professionally repaired, you can contact Dr. Clock at for a speedy fix.

A common problem with Toyota clocks is that some of the solder joints go bad. At first the clock will start going dead intermittently, and then eventually it will stop working completely. I made this video with instructions on how to fix it yourself using a soldering iron:

If you are uncomfortable doing it yourself, I will do it for anyone for a fee of $25 with free return shipping. If interested, email me at:

Watch the video first, up to the bit they remove the steering wheel.

it is unlikely that the light is causing the battery to drain. it sounds like the system is in valet mode, if it's an older Clifford with a two button keypad somewhere (typically on the dash), turn ignition on, and press the * button twice, then press and hold the blank button.
if it's a newer Clifford system (Clifford Matrix), locate the valet button, then turn the key to ignition (ON), then off and press and release the valet button.

Cuando lo cierras no suena la alarma

Si Ud. se refiere a que no suena 1 vez cuando cierra y 2 veces cuando habre es por que el alarma esta en modo de silencio, en este caso dependiendo del modelo de alarma que Ud. tenga puede ser programado desde el remoto o a su vez con el mini switch que esta ubicado debajo del tablero del automovil, logicamente que para estos pasos debera tener a mano el manual de programacion de su alarma.

Viper 5101 Manual Transmission - can't start

First off, is it in neutral? It can't engage the starter motor if it's in gear. Secondly, If it was professionally installed, why not just take it back and demand that they fix it?

Your wiring should somewhat match this.

TOYOTA codes are virtually impossible to obtain for free from anywhere on the Internet as access is required to the original factory database.

A few of the older ones are hardwired codes and the only place I know  who may be able to help is here

If not, or you are in a rush , it might be quicker to try your Main Toyota Dealer or take it into a Decode Service
