Hello,

There are a few fuses that can cause this and need to be checked.

First, does this have the audiophile stereo system?

Also do you have a little test light to test fuses with?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
No, I dont have the test light for fuses.

Thanks,

Ok, then you will have to look at them very closely to see if its blown. They are in the Smart Junction block (fuse block) under the left side of the dash.

Ok , so you are saying it could be fuse 21, 22, 32 or 33 that is causing the problem?
Expert:  Virtual Wrench replied 4 years ago.
Hi,

Yes, if its a fuse thats causing the problem it will be one of those. If they are good (doubtful) then there is a problem elsewhere and will need to have that circuit tested.

Best wishes my friend and thanks for asking!

I took the car to the dealership and they found that there was a fuse behind the radio unit that had blown and that was the cause of the radio/clock unit not working. When the fuse was replaced, the radio/clock then worked.

 

I have no idea why this solution is nowhere to be found in any owners manual or on internet sites, but please pass this one on to anyone else.

 

Very best !

They do things like this to us all the time and sure makes a mechanics work an awful lot harder to do.

Thanks for asking!
