Hi! None of the...

Hi! None of the buttons work for the fan and the clock is stuck on 1888

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Toyota?

Carig 1994 I think

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I bought from a friend

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

They said that the battery went very flat for a while and when they put the new one in could get the buttons for fan and the clock was like that

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Battery seems fine but haven’t checked it

Have you checked any of the fuses ? Especially the heater and instrument ones. Also check for power to the fan switches. Do you get high speed at the fan?

I have checked all fuses which are all ok.
The fan works and the heater as they are manual turning.
None of the lights are on the climate control and don’t work. The clock is stuck on 1888

Sorry I don't have a wiring diagram for this so I will pass you on and hope another can help you better.
