Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma
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...
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

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!!

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.
