Hey folks, I have a 2004 Corolla TTR - the battery had been removed then reconnected, since then the stereo does not work at all - displays the letters SEC when ignition is on, have no manual either

Asked by Mar 24, 2015 at 02:45 AM about the 2004 Toyota Corolla

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I don't have a users manual anymore, and have been downloading manuals from the web,
but nowhere have I found an explanation of how to reset my stereo after battery
disconnection.  Can anyone help me out here please?

To get your favorite stations use the BAND button for AM or FM. It has two FM for setting pre-select stations on the buttons for a total of 12. Then use the TUNE knob to find whatever stations you prefer, then press and hold the button until it beeps. Then it is pre-set to that station. Same for AM. For the clock, simply push 'H' for hour and 'M' for minute. The clock does not know AM from PM. There is a lot more. and to get full instructions go to the link I will put on the end here. Have your VIN ready, and create an account, you can download your owners manual, see all service records for your car and much more. You don't have to create an account if you don't want to, but whether you do or not, first choose your car, (you can skip that step with an account) hover your cursor on 'resources., click .'manuals and warranty' and the owners manual will download.

Thanks for your answer - I know how to pre-set stations and to set the clock - the issue I have is that the entire audio system has ceased to work at all since the battery was disconnected and reconnected - I cannot turn on the radio, i cannot listen to a CD - nothing switches on or off at all - the display hasn't changed and displays only the letters SEC the whole time. I also mentioned that I have downloaded several toyota corolla manuals, and none of them explain how to reset my audio system. Cheers!
