    Hey Guys,

    The battery in my 2006 Tacoma died yesterday. I tried a jump start to no avail so I got a new battery. After the new battery installation I tried to turn the radio on as well as my XM radio which is plugged into the aux. plug but nothing. I checked the fuses under the hood and dash but they looked good. I checked the plug on the xm and the fuse was blown so now I'm thinking something might have happened when I tried the jump start. :mad:

    Is their an inline fuse to the radio other than the two fuses I checked in the fuse boxes or is there another fuse I need to be checking? I'm a little fried from the heat so I might be missing another fuse to check.

    Any help would be great!!

    Thanks
    Mike

    I may be wrong but there are only 2 fuse boxes on the tacomas. One behind the coin tray near the driver side door. The other is under the hood. If all those fuses are good then it gets trickier. Does the truck have an amp? If so it may be burned out.

    I had a bad fuse in my Tacoma and it looked ok. You may want to replace the radio fuses just in case.

    There are actually 2 fuses in the box under the hood. In my frustration and profuse sweating due to the heat here in Georgia I only saw and checked one of them. After chilling out last night I went back over the manual and found the second one and it was indeed blown so I swapped it out and now I can rock while driving instead of hearing myself think!! :D

    Thanks for the help and suggestions!!
