Discovered today that the plug to the back of the clock was plugged into the “dummy” port, so I got lucky and only had to plug mine back in. I was fully prepared to operate.

However, I will have to operate probably anyway because I want to remove the faded out puke green cover with blue.

Made my first attempt at soldering the pins to the board last night, but didn't have any flux handy. Clock works intermittently, which I expected with how poor the solders were. Going to reattempt in a few days.

Thanks for the great write-up though!

Well I bough my first 4runner last week.
1999 White 4x4 5speed E-locker with 268k miles
First thing I noticed was the clock wasn’t working. Pushed on it a little and it would intermittently work. Decided to try this mod and take the clock apart, the corner of the screen was all black. Someone was probably really pushing on it in the past. Decided to ditch the springs and solder the pins onto the board as per this thread.

Clock now works like a charm 😊

A big thank you to all involved in this 9 year old post. I just picked up a 98 T4r this morning and two things are not working. The high beam indicator light and the clock. This post definitely gives me motivation to tear into the dash and get the clock working. This is my very first post on this forum by the way. I have a feeling I’m going to get a lot of answers on here. Thanks again!

Totally worked!

Thanks for the instructions. I'm not great at soldering, so will probably have to do it again, but for now, my clock works again! Next I'm going to try this on my 03 Corolla.

My clock has fortunately kept on ticking but... Since any aftermarket, modern or Android headunit has a clock I want to replace it with something that is OLED. Even been thinking of the comp/temp display from my mirror.

Will an amber clockk from a Taco work in the 99-00 dash? The connectors are the same, but I'm not sure about size

Thumbs up 2001 4runner clock

Decided to revive this thread. I fixed mine a month ago, cracked solder joint was the issue. Mine is a 1998 version, there might be a different layouts depending on MY but the problems are the same.

This issue was difficult to find, this was my 2nd attempt. If your trying this it might be a good idea to have some flux on hand, getting solder to flow on non-tin joints can be difficult. One more thing, use lead solder, it is more reliable than the lead free stuff.

Here is a list of things you should check so you don't have to take apart the dash twice like I did:
1. Check that springs aren't over compressed, just give them a little stretch
2. Clean spring contacts with alcohol
3. Check solder joints, especially ones on the resistors (recommend using a multimeter/VTVM)


Hopefully the photo posts correctly, if not here is a link
