Lost The Juice :(


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

ive been away from the seen for a while and recently got back into the yaris.

I installed a aftermarket cd player ages ago probably like everyone here which was easy enough.

But above it was the original tape deck which i left in.

I decided in a moment of genuis (or madness, not sure yet) to wire them both up to one power supply with a switch (so both cant be on at once) and then share all the other wires i.e speaker, 12 V memory, illuminator, earth. (not sure if its was a good idea :wacko: )

Anyways i shared all the wires with bridge connectors forgettin to tape some of the ends off :( , i eagerly turn the car on and....

nothing, i dont have any tape, cd, then noticed not wee display or roof light :(

i think i have shorted sommit but not sure.

Does anyone know how i can check what the %$( i have done and how i go about fixin it

cheers for your time guys, i look forward to reading who gives me the right answer first :thumbsup:

genuis or madness :lol: i bet you anything you have just burned up a fuse, the fuse is under the bonnet, it will be one of the 15A ones. as you said the fuse in question controls the display, interior light and Radio/tape/CD.

i'm just startin out and usually anything that can go wrong does,

so to make sure i dont kill ma car, where abouts am i lookin under the bonnet and how do i know which one it is without a multimeter (or is it essential),

i guess halfrauds would do the 15A fuse to replace it.

the wires where all over the place in the dash and cause i forgot to tape them all off somit must of been touchin and i think thats what caused the short, DOH!!

sounds easy enough, lol, (says the guy who broke it)

also what about my set up, is there a problem sharing the wires between the tape and cd? this includes:

12V memory,



4 Speakers,

and sharing the ACC through a manual switch.( so only one is on at a time)

if this is ok, then i will be quite pleased as i am a bit of a novice idiot :rolleyes:

I've just realised Fazzy has a diesel, so we have two fuse blocks in our cars - one of the left of the engine bay and one on the right - both are just in front of the suspension turrets as well as the inside on below the steering column - may be you should check all 3 locations for the right one...

Good luck!
