Bad bulb or fuse, also check that you have a good ground behind that panel as the screws do sometimes come loose on SUV's (four wheeling, potholes, etc.)

How to do I get the compass and temperature gauge to work in the rear view mirror again. Directions are NW and SE all the time


Calibrate the compass built into the upper-right corner of the rearview mirror by holding the compass button (an "N" with two crossing lines) until your zone number appears. Determine your zone number by looking at the map in the owner's manual. Press the compass button until a "C" appears. Then drive in a circle three times at 5 mph or less in an uncongested area. The compass will automatically orient as a result of the circling.

Outdoor temperature/compass gauge not working.


If the lights in the overhead console work then it is not a fuse, it is a bad console. These units are poorly designed and fail frequently. We offer a repair service with a lifetime guarantee. Check out www.autoclockrepair.com. Drop us a note if you have any questions, thanks!

The overhead console compass, and outside temperature gauge's light either went out, or it isn't working anymore. How do I fix it?


This is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. If the dome lights work but the compass unit does not then it is a faulty computer unit. 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!

Even though my truck is not overheating, the temperature gauge will shoot up to hot and the oil light will come on. After a few minutes, the truck will not let me accelerate anymore. If I shut the truck off, it will reset the oil light and the temp gauge and run fine for a while. But eventually, it will do the same thing again. Is it a sensor or computer problem

Overhead Digital Compass & Temperature Display Inoperative


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+.

Onboard Temperature gauge


Does your direction work ok? I have seen that if you reset the compass then this will correct the temp problem. If not you can try disconnecting the battery for approx a min and this should reboot the system. If this don't work let me know and I can try to how you fine the fault.
