Question about 2005 Toyota Tacoma

1 Answer

No compass and direction display

I have a 2005 4X4 Toyota Tacoma with 44000 miles on it. The display suddenly stopped working. I've checked fuses with a meter but everything looks okay. But I'm not sure which fuse controls this and which box it is in.

From some of the E-mails I've seen here it looks like this may be becoming a common problem. Do you have a solution for this?

    My 2005 Tacoma has the same problem. Dealership where I bought my truck just quoted me a price of $1100 dollars for the replacement!! Ouch!! I'll do without it for that price

    Same thing happened to me it was under waranty and the dealer said it was a little less than $1000

    I took my 2005 prerunner into the dealer and they said the display was burned out and would cost about $1K dollars. I think I can do without it for now - 94,000 miles on truck.



    Also the speedometer is not working properly. I can be parked and the speedometer says I am traveling 10 MPH. It should be nice to be traveling 10 MPH when the engine is off using no gas...

Light has gone out on the console display for compass and temp on the 2006 Toyota Tacoma headliner. Trying to find out which fuse to replace


2005-2009 Toyota Tacoma Overhead Console Fuse test
* does your cruise control work?
* do you brake lights work?
* does your dome light work?
The 10 amp IGI #2 fuse controls several other components including the dome light, cruise control, and
brake lights. If these are working but the compass is dim, intermittent, or dead then the control module
has gone bad.
This is a very common problem with the 05-09 Tacoma. The console is very prone to internal failure. I offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee, check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com
There is a bunch of useful info there. Drop me an email if you have questions, thanks!

The compass and outside temp on my 2006 Toyota Tacoma quit working. Is there a fuse for this unit and where would I find it?


Are your cruise control, dome, and tail lights also out? If so then it is a fuse. If not then the control unit has gone bad internally. You may be able to get it fixed under your warranty.
If it is not covered by your warranty, check out

Is there a fuse for the overhead compass/temp dispaly for a 2006 Toyota Tacoma and where is it located?


The 10 amp IGI #2 fuse controls several other components including the dome light, cruise control, and brake lights. If these are working but the compass is dim, intermittent, or dead then the control module has gone bad. You can get a replacement from toyota but I believe it costs $500+.
