Hello. Welcome to Just Answer. Please allow me to assist you. Before we begin, does the radio illuminate (stations, etc) when you turn it on? Thanks

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No... it doesn't do anything! The only thing that works on the control panel is the clock

Does the radio have a CD unit fitted? This is needed to look at the correct wire diagram.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No... its got a cassette player and a cd changer in the trunk

Thank you, ***** ***** question...Does the dome light come on when you open the door?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No it does not!
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

Ok. The radio and the dome light share the same fuse. Let's look under the hood in the fuse panel and see if there is a blown DOME fuse.

Ok

No its not blown...
Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

There are 2 fuses for the radio. The Radio fuse and the Dome fuse. If both are good it is possible the radio is bad. Can you check to see if you have power at the RED wire on the back of the radio?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there is power to the red wire... the radio and air conditioner both quit at the same time!

Is there power to the Blue with a red stripe wire?

Expert:  Toyota Service replied 1 year ago.

Let's look under the passenger side seat. Is there a metal box there?
