I'm guessing you have an aftermarket radio?
If so then you are probably needing keys to remove it.
If you know someone who may have a set of keys you can borrow I would try that first, most keys are about the same. OR you could try using 2 butter knives, slide the butter knives on each side of the radio (left and right) and wiggle them around until both sides are unlocked, then carefully slide the knives out (be careful not to let the radio lock back into place.) The radio should slide out fairly easily.

Hope this helps.

My 2006 Toyota Solara convertible radio volume goes in and out, what can I do


Sit in back seat passenger side. Remove panel which is on top which is below rear window, same panel where seat belt goes into panel at top. You will need to remove #2 Phillips screws which hold panel in place. Screws are hiding behind seat belt front cover where belt goes down in panel, under cup holder which allows arm rest cover to lift off and one more right on left side of head rest in corner. Remove panel. You will see switch which is in vertical position. If for any reason you want to by-pass switch, just unplug switch. Radio will still work in standard mode. The amp sound will not increase in performance when top is down and sound will not be as sharp.

Radio Volume knob not working on 2009 Pont Vibe. Can it be repaired


I just removed the knob by cutting the top off and using a wire cutter to cut away enough plastic so that I could remove the knob from the front. It is thin plastic on the sides so I got it to collapse enough to pull it out. I just need to order another and cut the flange on the back of the knob so it goes in. Took me about 20 minutes to remove the knob. It tried to remove the radio but that takes a lot of time and in my case I could not remove any of the wiring harnesses.

Hi im putting in a JVC cd/radio in a 1997 ford escort TD,Ive removed factory fitted Ford radio cassette,leaving 5 wires connected to a yellow plug,I have 3 wires coming out of JVC marked yellow memory back...


hi...well i know this might not be of any help, but you can buy a connector that plugs straight into the ford plug, and then you plug the jvc plug/s into that, not cutting wires no messing up the original connector just incase you want to sell the car with original system in it... http://productfinder.autoleads.co.uk/productinfo.aspx?&m=FORD&f=ESCORT&id=463&pID=6889
thats the link for it...if you tell me what colours are on the ford plug i could tell you what goes where...thanks

Blower on my 06 caravan has stopped working, what do I do, all fuses have been checked and are fine.


open your glove box, squeeze in both sides and let it drop down. Directly behind there, is the blower resister, its approx. 3" x 1.5" with a 5/16 screw on each end and two wiring connectors. (one big one small)

Remove that, there is a piece of wire that runs from one end to the other on the back side that has a small bullet shape thermal fuse built into it (prob. red on one end). You can test for continuity with a multimeter on each side of the bullet shaped fuse. It is a thermal fuse that goes bad often. If you are handy with a soldering iron, you get one from Radio Shack and replace it for $1.49 (240/10a/144 deg) take the resistor and these numbers and they should be able to help you. Let me know if you need the specific R. Shack part #, I may have it at home.

Just clip the stiff wire ( don't cut at the base, I cut where the wire is bent at 90 deg. on each end to leave some to work with) and remove the old thermal fuse. Slip the new one in and solder it to the old wire and clip the excess. Tin your wires first with a bist of solder and work quickly so you don't overheat the new fuse. Too much heat could ruin it to.
Reassemble.

Hope this helps. (of course you could just buy a new resistor for $20-$30, probably an easier solution

NO AIR /HEAT


Had the same problem on 2001 L200 and ran across this answer on another blog. ***Also warnings about dangers of working around air bags***

Pulled the plastic frame from around the radio.
Removed radio.

Behind radio is a large male,female connector feeding wires to the heater blower.

The wires were discolored from heat and blower would kick on when wiggled.At which point I could feel the discolored wires heat up.

Disconnected the connector and could see where it was burnt.

Cut the affected wires going into and out of the connector and jumped them with comparable sized wires and quick connects from Autozone.

Caution not to cut off more wire than needed (wire stripper tool was very handy) work space was tight. ***Disconnected the battery before making the repair ***
