    Hi all. I've been browsing for a while, and recently picked up my first Tacoma. A 2009 Access cab. I hated the stock radio, so I installed an Alpine CDE-126BT CD Receiver, which i purchased from crutchfield. The install went well, except that I had trouble getting the factory clock out of the housing. When I got everything installed, the clock no longer works. I followed the instructions from Alpine and Crutchfield, and wired everything correctly, and soldered and taped all connections. Pretty straightforward. The Alpine does have a clock on it, and I'm wondering if the instructions intentionally eliminate the factory clock, or did I do something wrong? None of the clock wires were touched. The airbag lights and hazard flashers still fuction fine....just the clock is now blank. Anyone have any ideas, or experienced this before? Thanks.

    There's only one wiring connector for the whole unit. If it wasn't plugged in, my airbag lights wouldn't work.

    O.K. I'm starting to think I missed something here. When I removed the clock/air bag lights, I don't recall if there was more than one connector that plugged into the unit. Can anyone tell me if the clock has a seperate connector from the air bag lights? I may have just lost the connector back inside the dash.

    On an '11 there is definitely two plugs. Should be an easy thing to check, pop off the panel and see if there is an empty socket on the back side of the clock.

    Ok, so I ripped the entire dash apart again. There is only one connector that goes to the clock/airbag indicator unit. Apparently, I must have rendered it inoperable while attempting to remove it from the cover. Can anyone tell me the correct name/part number for this clock? I need to replace it.
