No, but, this sounds crazy, rapping your knuckles on the display when the radio gets into a bad state seems to "fix" it.

It sounds like you need to replace the light bulbs in the dash. It is not that hard. There are about 3 screws that you have to take out, one to the left of the steering, look up, and 2 over by the radio, in which you have to pull the plastic off there. Then the rest of the dash pops out. Then you will remove 4 screws to the display. The light bulbs that light the display are the large green screws like fixtures. The bulbs are haligens that pull out of the fixtures. There are 4 bulbs total for this area. The Air flow area is a bit more tricky. You have to remove the screws for control area, the dash will already be out of your way if you do both at the same time. There are 3 bulbs, smaller, in this area. The little push button switches have their own bulbs that you have to purchase at the dealer. The other bulbs you can buy at any auto parts store and at wal mart. Let me know if you have any trouble with this and I will be glad to help.
#55 of 102 Inside lights don't come on when door opened- not fuse
Oct 19, 2009 (1:40 pm)
My 2005 Sienna's inside lights stopped working in the van- except the front ones - but none work any longer when doors open.
Husband tried fuse - it is ok.
Any other ideas?
#56 of 102 Tail lights blowing fuse on Toyota Sienna 98

All other lights work. The 10 amp fuse under the steering wheel blows immediately when I put in a new fuse.
Any advice on what to look for or change?

There must be a short in the wiring that goes to that light.
Take it (the taillight) out and clean it up, see if there's any dampness there. Check the bulb itself as well.
I'm far from an electrical expert but I had a radio that kept doing that, and the solution was to replace the radio.
#58 of 102 2001 Sienna Amp
Jan 03, 2010 (8:29 am)
My front speakers blew out a few months ago... It wasn't a volume issue, they just slowly - and seperately - chose to go... I had them replaced, and soon after my radio decided to work sometimes and then cut out (although the display stays on as if it is working fine).
But now I can't get any sound at all (though still the same situation with the display) ... The radio 1 and 2 fuses behind the ashtray are fine... could the amp be blown?

That might mean you had DC, Direct Current, flowing through the speakers as the amp was in the process of failing.
#60 of 102 2008 Toyota Sienna Radio Volume Issue
Aug 21, 2010 (7:06 am)
So over the past year or so, my wife and I have noticed a problem with the radio volume. Occasionally, the volume will increase on its own and can not be turned down using the knob on the radio itself. You must use the volume control on the steering wheel. The dealership can not duplicate the problem and says that they've checked all the wiring and it seems to be hooked up correctly. I've talked to others in the waiting room at the dealership with the same issue and results. Any suggestions on how to go about fixing this problem?
