Question about 2004 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

Think there is a battery drain somewhere

Recently replaced my battery in Toyota Matrix '04, 6-speed, manual, because experienced problems with radio and cd player, as well as having no power to start the car. About 60K miles are on the car, so replaced the battery, and got the radio/cd pleayer to work for a couple of days. Then it stopped working again. The other morning after very cold night (morning temp was 19 F), car would not start; had to jump start with cables. The radio and cd player also started working again. CD player today not working but radio is. Could there be a drain on battery somewhere or a short to the battery and or radio etc.?

Their is possibly a short. I would first isolate the problem. Disconnect the CD player and radio. If you can disconnect it then remove the radio fuse.

Start and drive the car for 15 minutes or so. Shut it off, and let it sit for a while. Then go out and start the car. Repeat this until you are sure that your problem is with the radio or wiring.

If The car fails to start and is having a repeat of the problem you have a parasidic draw on the battery from somewhere.

The CD player might have been put out of time (sync) so instead of going to a home position it ejects the CD. It might need to be "zeroed" to home position to fix the minor problem.

I have P0770 code on my 2003 Toyota Matrix 2WD L4-1.8L (1ZZ-FE) auto XR with ABS. I have couple more questions. I was replaced a ECM already and the P0770 come out after 1 days. I have the R&R Speed...


First I would try resetting the ECU by disconnecting the battery for a few minutes. This will remove the code. Then see if it comes back. Mind you you will not pass inspection, because the ECU will need to monitor a certain amount of driving "cycles" before inspection will accept the findings. Before that, replace your O2 sensors, and get those out of the way. P0770 is a Shift Solenoid E Malfunction. You will have to look at a manual to find out which Shift Solenoid that "E" refers to and where it is located. TC lockup, refers to the TC lockup solenoid. If so I would try replacing that and going from there. The auto transmission is a pretty complicated beast, and even the most experienced DIY'ers would go past the normal maintenance. HOWEVER, changing solenoids is considered, at least to me, DIY maintenance. Whats is your RPM when cruising at say 60 mph. If its more than 2400 rpms, then i would say it is your lockup solenoid. hope this helps

My CD player is running but, No Cd Inside


I had the same issue and this fixed it fine for me:
Remove the 10A audio fuse from the passenger side console fuse panel (see diagram), turn on power, turn off power, replace fuse. Turn on power, press eject, reset the clock. Rock on.

Acura TL CD player does not work. Whenever I press the CD butteon it shuts down the stereo. Does anyone have a solution


this happened to my 04 tl. it would stay on for the radio but once i hit the cd it would completely shut down until i turn the car off. i had to take it back to the dealership and they had to have it replaced. if you got the car not too long ago you should take it back since they shouldnt be selling you a car with parts that will fail so soon or if you have a warranty then it should be all good.

Toyota Matrix 2005 CD stuck


More than likely, you have 2 cds stuck in one slot. What you have to do is remove the radio form the dash, and then remove the top metal panel on the radio. Plug the radio back in, and press eject. You may have to "help" one or two of the cds out of the player.
