Long time lurker here, first time poster.
I drive an 08 access cab 4x4 I-4 5 speed. Yesterday I had a brake controller (Teknosha Prodigy) and 7-pin RV plug installed by a local trailer shop for my popup camper.
I realized while driving it home that the clock is extremely dim (much moreso than before) and it resets to 1:00 every time I shut the truck off. No other issues that I can detect. Interior lights all seem to work, radio presets stayed intact.
Before I haggle with the trailer shop, and drive all the way across town, and have to be truck-less for another day, I thought I'd see if there are any simple fixes that might do the trick. The most obvious spots to check, seems to me, are the fuse box and the battery connections, so I'll have a look at those this evening.
But if that doesn't do the trick, is there anything else to check out?
Possibly a bad/missing connection behind the dash? That would be wierd because the airbag light right next to the clock works, but who knows.
I knew I should have done this job myself in the first place. "Take it to the pro's" I thought - "it'll cost a few bucks but be done right and without any hassle."
