Hello,

The clock and the radio are usually on the same fuse, have you checked the fuses on the inside fuse panel?

The should be one marked radio.

I haven't yet. I'll run down and do that in a minute
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Also check the 15A acc fuse and the dome fuse, it's best to use a voltmeter or testlight to see if power is getting through the fuse. the key has to be on.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
if it makes any difference, the cigarette lighter does work.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Ok, check the ACC fuse and the dome fuse, I think the cig lighter/power outlet is on a different fuse.

15a acc fuse is good
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Can you tell if power is getting to it, do you have a voltmeter or a 12 volt test light?

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I might. Gimme a minute
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
It would appear I do not. I'll have to go get one
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Ok, the 20A rad#1 fuse feeds power directly to the radio with key on, it may be in the box under the hood, I have a diagram so let me know.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
There isn't a Rad#1 fuse
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Ok, let me see if I can locate a fuse diagram and get back to you/

Is it just a factory steero, no navigation system?

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

The fuse diagram I'm looking at shows a 15A radio fuse in the inside fuse panel

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The inside panel has the following (I'll attempt to lay them out in the correct grid):Power
30A
4WD 20A ECU-IG 10A
ACC 15A TURN 10A WIPER 20A
ECU-B 7.5A GAUGE 10A IGN 7.5AThere isn't a radio fuse. The ACC fuse is intact.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Let me send you a diagram, there should be a lot more fuses than that on that fuse panel, be right back

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
If you could show a picture of where I should be looking for the panel (inside the vehicle), that'd be helpful, too.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Just click on the highlighted link

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I did. Whereabouts in the cab is this panel?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
I noticed the Dome fuse highlighted. Dome light works, right now.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Left lower side of the dash behind a plastic cover, left of the steering wheel.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
The only fuse panel on the inside is the one I mentioned. There's another one under the hood, but I didn't find anything pertinent there.
Toyota Mechanic: Ted Ritter, Toyota Master Tech replied 1 year ago

Ok, I don't know how to proceed here so I'm going to opt out and another expert will se my opt out and hopefully can take over where we left off.
