Sir,

I do not know if you had repaired your unit or not but I will detail my experience in repairing my unit today. I had exactly the same problem where the unit suddenly went blank. Here is the procedure,

1- Pressed the mode switch several times to make sure I did not put the
unit in the blank mode accidently (did not work)
2- Checked the 7.5 A fuse number 10 and it was Ok
3- Removed the two screws holding the unit to the ceiling and pulled the unit
from the front to release the two clips.
4- I used a T-10 security bit to disassamble evey thing in the unit and to
get to the printed circuit board.
5- I found two surface mount resistors next to each other with 510 printed
on them that were cracked off the board (you need magnifing glass).
They overheated (poor design) and they desoldered themselves off the
board.
6- You can resolder them or better replace them.
7- I used two 68 ohms quarter watt resistors (to reduce power disspation)
and soldered them in their place.
8- You can check your work by attaching the board to the wire harness and
to the plug in the ceiling and turn ignition on.
9- If everything is Ok (as I hope) disconnect the board and reassemble the
unit and install it back.

Hopefully this will help someone in the future.

My overhead compass and temperature is not on, also my a/c unit front and back are blowing but not getting cold.


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!

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.

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.

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+.

Outside temp light and compass dont work. what can i do to fix it?


Do the map lights in the overhead console / Illuminated vanity lights work?

This is the same fuse, Cab fuse panel fuse #23 ( hot in run position ).

If the map lights & vanity mirrors on the visors work correctly, it is the solid state module in the overhead console that is the problem ( have seen this, more common on SuperDuty line ).\
