There should be a single screw in the front of the overhead console. You may have to move the rear view mirror to be able to see the screw, but it should be fairly easily accessible. Once you remove the Phillips head screw, the console should snap off. Hold both sides with equal pressure and pull straight down. The console should snap off in 1 piece. Be sure to support it once it comes down because you'll still have the wires to disconnect. The wiring harness will be 1 single male/female clip with a push style clip on one side.

Once you get the console down, the LCD display unit will need a #10 hex head bit, I believe. But if you don't have one, you can send the entire unit in. I recommend the following repair...

Auto Clock Repair

Look on the website autoclockrepair.com for a pdf downloadable shipping invoice, print out and fill out the invoice, and make a check payable to Steve Titus, Auto Clock Repair in the amount of $36.95 for first class or $39.95 for priority shipping. Secure the console in a box, send it, and you'll have it back in about 7 to 10 days. Good Luck!!

2004 f250 powerstroke console with compass, temp,


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!

The electric compass and temp. display isnt working in my 2001 ford sport trac. Also,the power side mirrors and the keyless entry? Is this a fuse problem and if so does any one know the fuse #, my owners...


I believe that the mirrors and entry issues are not related to the overhead console. Compass/temp failure 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.

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+.
