My 2014 Toyota Corolla radio stopped working

Asked by Sep 16, 2018 at 08:38 PM about the 2014 Toyota Corolla S

Question type: General

My 2014 Toyota Corolla radio stopped working but the screen shows a line
progression that appears to simulate a buffering of some sort.  Before the
buffering line reaches the end the screen shuts off and the buffering starts up
again.  This process continues on and on and never stops.  The car has 70,000
miles and there is no sound and no screen function.

I would pull the radio fuse for several minutes and then reinstall it. Make sure you have the radio security code before you do this.

Thanks, I don't know how to find the radio security code and since my screen only shows a picture of an Entune radio display I'm not sure I'd be able to punch in a series of numbers, unless after I put the radio fuse back in it reboots the system??


The same thing happened to my 2014 Corolla as well! Less than 68000km. Took it to the dealership and the said I had to replace the unit...$1625! NOT HAPPY!

Turned out mt stereo was replaced it but i had to pay half.

I am having the same issue. I have 110, 000 miles, I still owe on the car. Is there a resolution to the problem without the high cost?

Well forget it you go to the dealers and they would say that the radio gave up that it time with 4 yrs old car and Toyota please and to replace it is 7000dlls or refurbished is 3000dlls thats a big joke have of the car costs.. And what's really weird that are many people with this problem and they wont recall the stereos!!!

I have a similar issue. My heat/air control stopped working. Dealership said the motor needed replacing ($1500!). Also, my sunroof needs a new motor, and the radio needs a new motor (but the only problem I have with the radio area is that the touchscreen doesn't work on the bottom half)! So I didn't even ask the price to replace those two things. If this car is only 6 years old and about 79k miles why are all the motors dying??? I feel I was sold a lemon (but used, so I can't take them to court). They need to recall the whole damn car! Which motor will die next?!
