onboard Clock/Speed Alert faulty/not working


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have recently just bought a 2nd hand 05 Sportivo but after I bought it only then I noticed the On Dash clock is not working......

I am also guessing it is not only the clock it does not work but apparently the speed alert as well? correct me if I am wrong... you guys know what I am talking about?

Anyways, just wanting to know how to fix that?

Any help would be greatly appreciated it.

Cheers.

Richard.

Hi guys, im afraid it is not that simple. Toyota cars especially camry are known for the clock to go bad, i have the exact same problem and i can assure you that it is not fuse related nor it is the clock unit playing up. How can i be so sure? Because i have pull out every single fuse there is and check them and i even tried with a different clock unit, all with not success. Im not sure what might the cause, if any one out there have any ideas please share it with me. Thanks

I have tried checking opening the clock unit to check if there's a break in the circuit, no success. Have tried to trace back to where the clock unit is connected (to the ECM) and checked all the connection but also no luck. The only thing I have not done is take it to the electrician or Toyota, which I know is going to cost me lots.

could be something wrong with the unit you bought,

mine was faulty and got it replaced, and it worked

Seemed to work, as for the OPs post, we are rectifying that the replacement was one of the fixes

I'm sure that the one I replaced with is still working. How did your one died before? did it gradually fade away? Mine did just that and now it completely dead.

My central locking stopped working the same time as my clock started playing up. But now the central locking is working fine but the clock is dead.

Hey Richard, I don't know the specific part name but i just called it the "clock unit'. Take a picture of it on your phone before you go to the wrecker's yard, that might help them to understand what your talking about. Good luck, let me know it goes.
