Dash Clock


Recommended Posts

here's one for ya.....

not a big thing but still annoying :angry:

the digital clock on my dash is going wonky......

it fades in and out all the time, not a flickering but just goes blank and then comes back fully lit up, and no, its not when i turn on the lights....... :huh:

there dosen't seem to be any pattern to it like distance travelled.......

then on other days it works fine.....

any thoughts? or has this happened to anybody else

Could be a loose connection inside. take to pieces and have a look.

to do so, put a screwdriver down the side and lever it out, should just pop out, disconnect the wires in the back. Now take the back panel off it, just undo the 4 clips its a bit fiddley but should be easy enough. Now the clock and buttons should come out, just check them over to see if anything does seem abit sus, then give em a blow to get any dust off and put it all back together in the reverse order.

Try that see if its any better.

Thanks for the welcome , mhantain!

How easy was it to change out the stereo?

It looks like the facia plate of a newer type needs to fit behind the plastic trim.

Did you have any problems?

It's a TOYOTA branded radio cassette. The FM radio goes from 77-88MHz.That means I can pick up diddly squat in Ireland- except for maybe some whale song ... :P

I had to look out some CASSETTES(from the 80s!!!!) to keep myself occupied on the 60 mile roundtrip to work :wacko: ...but it is a full logic deck.APSS etc.

Who can tell me what that means! ( I know-cause I'm old n grey)...just get me zimmer frame..small boys...jumpers for goalposts.... solid rubber tyres..

Well Done!!!

What did you do to it in the end?

just as you said richie ..... thanks

cynos_boy - get yourself a band expander and fiddle around to get stations, i think you have to add 18 to the number displayed such as today fm will be at 83mhz on your display instead of 100 - 102mhz.... it's not ideal but i just wanted to keep the mini-disc player although the cd player seems to have gone belly up, time bof a new mp3 player.

anybody fitted a new stereo lately??

what did you do with the big gaping hole left by the double head unit when you put in a single head unit..

filler pieces anybody :rolleyes:

Well I don't think I'll bother with a band expander......

Gone all out and bought some Alpine comps for the front, Alpine co-axials for the empty holes in the rear and a JVC headunit/with Toyota harness as below...

1 x SXE-1350S - 13cm components

1 x SXE-1325S - 13cm Speakers

1 x KD-LH811 - CD/MP3 PLAYER

All For less than €350

Got them alll from here.Clicky

Cheaper than I can get them anywhere in Ireland

Have used them before and found them to be great.

Now all I have to do is brush up on my fibreglassing skills- non existent- for my wee bootbuild project....Infinity amp/10 " subwoofer/ 1F cap...

"She canna take much more o' this captain!" :thumbsup:

Here is a pic of what my oem headunit looks like.Single DIN with a 'pocket'

Remove the facia and extract the cage assembly by removing the securing screws..img04051fg.th.jpg

You can buy this from any autoleads supplier for ~£25 :huh: (same place as the clicky above)

or fit a 2/3 guage pod

..or just blank it with some painted perspex
