Hi all. I need some advice. The radio, mirrors and clock on my 2017 Hilux are not working. Totally dead. I took my car to the local Toyota dealer. They said that the complete radio and clock needed to be replaced. Does anyone know if this is necessary? I also don't know it this will be covered by my extended warranty. Any advice?

Did they all stop working at once?

If so, I'd take it to a different dealership for a second opinion.

They all stop working at once. Yes, maybe I should take my car to an auto electrician.

Also think it's a fuse.

Check yourself or get a 2cnd opinion.
