Question about 1998 Toyota Avalon

1 Answer

Problem is clock, dome and locks don't work after I change the fuse = it works for the first couple of days then fades out not to return and I have to use a new fuse. The door locks also work intermitantly and the trunk and doors will not lock or unlock with the key remote. What is the problem?

SOURCE: 97 Toyota Camry aut. door lock and dash clock not working properl

i HAD the same problem.... first check the fuse under the hood labeled 'dome' should be a 7.5A it is blown for sure... also if you are good with wiring and at working on cars look at the drivers side doo wiring (between the inside door jam and the drivers side floor... its the wiring that goes through the door to the cabin.... anyway you have to take off the door panel and remove a small cover on the floor of the drivers side.... now remove the two connectors that go to the wiring harness.... you should now be able to loosen the grommet and pull the wiring harness through the door via the speaker hole (you should have removed the speaker already) you now must inspect the wiring which is most likely frayed and/or broken now fix the wiring with some new wiring and crimp connectors and heat shrink your work.... should be good as new... have fun getting the wiring back through the door... it will be bigger due to the crimp on connectors etc..... i did a quick write up of this so i hope it is understandable

SOURCE: the remote to unlock the doors won't work.

I hope you're able to get into your car because it sounds like the system needs to be reprogrammed.

1-insert and remove key from ignition two times

2-close and open driver door two times

3-insert and remove key once from ign.

4-close and open drvr door twice

5-insert key into ign.,then close driver door

6-turn key to on (not start) then off, twice this is rewrite mode,have all remotes to reprogram it will clear any lost remotes.

7-remove key from ignition,the door locks should cycle twice.if not start over.it may take a few tries.

8-press lock/unlock together and hold for a second

9-release,and press lock on remote,the door locks will cycle confirming program.continue to do other remotes you have,steps 8 and 9.if only one in possession,you are done. To end mode open door or insert key into ignition.

You'll need to follow the steps with no more than a 1-2 second delay between each step.. hope it works

On my 98 corolla the radio clock and dome light doesn't work. But when I put the fuse in all that works but the alarm goes off. Don't have original key or remote for the car. Is there away to fix...


leave the fuse in have someone disconnect old alarm
and get a new one. is gonna be more expensive to purchase
the remote than to get a new alarm.

1999 corolla cigarette lighter does not work. Looked in the owners manual and the same fuse controls the clock. Since the clock works it can not be the fuse.


I don't have the owner's manual, but I do have the wiring diagrams for your vehicle. According to the wiring diagrams, the information that you have is not correct. The cigarette lighter circuit is protected by the "CIG" fuse in the Instrument Panel Junction Box behind the left side of the dash at the lower finish panel. It is a 15 Amp fuse. The clock circuit is protected by the "DOME" fuse in the Engine Room Junction Block on the left side of the engine compartment.
