Outside temperature gauge not functioning

The outside temperature gauge in my 2006 Toyota Tacoma no longer works. Is there a fuse I can check? I have looked in the manual and all through the vehicle and can not find it yet...

    My outside temperature gauge and coupless no longer work. How do I remove the unit. I see no screws and I can not figure out how to remove it to inspect it.

    My Outside temperature gauge is, also, not functioning. I reviewed the manual and looked at the fuses under the hood. Could not see anything obvious. Has anyone found a solution, or will this become a common problem for 2006 Tacoma's this year? What does Toyota charge to fix?

    The outside temperature gauge in my 2006 Toyota Tacoma no longer works ALSO!! I don't think it is a fuse issue, because it sometimes will randomly come back on.

    I have a toyota tacoma 2006 and my outside temperature also stopped working! Anyone knows how to fix this problem. I checked the fuses, but could find anything wrong, please help. It seems like i am not only one!

    Same here. I also have the dreaded Tire Pressue guage crapping the bed also. So much for Toyota Quality :(

    I have thesame problem. I took it apart and looked at the control board. There was a chip that had come loose. I am going to take it to the dealership tomorrow to show them what I found. It looks like there may be a design issue.

    i have the same problem. I took it apart by taking out the screw behind the sunglass holder, and then pull down on the front of it. It is held in place with compression clips. Whan I looked at the board, there was a chip with the number 510 on it that had come loose and was hanging down. The board is mounted upside down and it looks like the solder didn't hold. I plan to teke it to the dealer tomorrow to see what they say. It looks like a design issue to me.

    I found I have the same problem. I pulled the overhead down and found that my 510 resistors are intact but when I pushed down on them everything came on. Is there a certin type of Solder I need to use or will just standerd solder work?

It is not the fuse. I had the same problem for months. Sometimes, depending on the temperature the overhead temp guage would work then it would not. I thought it was a loose connection but that was not it at all. I checked on the internet and found a ton of people with the same issue. It is caused by loose connections on the "510" resistors. My solder connections looked good but I resoldered and it works like a charm. Go here for a description of the issue and then look down farther for a description of the solution with pictures: http://www.toyotanation.com/forum/archive/topic/172978-1.html

I had the same experience and the solution was to resolder the two "510" resistors. Toyota wants about eight hundred bucks to replace this so a five minute solder job was certainly a welcome relief.

Solution for the Comapss/temp unit is to check the 510 resistors. Mine were not coming loose, but I re-soldered them and now have no issue.

Someone else commented on a faulty tire pressure sensor. Most likely, your under bed spare has gone low. The spare also has a wireless air pressure sensor. Put air in the spare and your light should shut off...

Ski4Mike is the man,
I yanked the overhead apart as instructed and low and behold, that little 510 came tumbling out right on to my table. I heated up the gun and got busy. 20 minutes later my temp/compus was back in action for the price of six pack of beer. It had nothing to do with fuses this time!!

    I had the same issue as all the above on my 2006 tacoma. I removed the unit and re-soldered the 510 and it works like new, total time 1/2 hour. Thanks to whoever found this as it saved many $$.

Check BOTH Fuse Boxes. Should be one inside the Cab and one Under the Hood. Just look for Blown Fuses.

I took te screw out from the sunglass holder and pulled the whole unit down. It takes a little elbow grease to get it down but it will come down. I noticed that the 510 resistor had no solder so I soldered both 510 connections and bingo, good as new.

My 2007 Toyota tacoma's outside temperature gauge is not working and the dealer wants 105 just to look at it what should i do


Remove console w/a philips screwdriver under the sunglass case. This will enable it to unclip. Problem is with the 510 chip on the circuit board, it is a cold soldier joint. Touch it up with a soldiering iron. Then put it back together. All set,it takes 10 minutes to fix.

I have a 2007 Tacoma. Recently the compass/temperature display quit. I cannot determine which fuse controls this unit. I'm hoping it's the fuse. If not, how much do repairs/replacements cost. Thanks!


If the overhead lights on the console work then it is not a fuse. I offer a repair service with a lifetime guarantee on all work performed. Much better than what toyota offers :)

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
www.autoclockrepair.com. We offer a very reasonable repair solution.

The outside temperature gauge in my 2006 Toyota Tacoma no longer works. Can someone tell me where to buy a used one or a refurbish one? Thanks


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+.
