Question about 2006 Toyota Tacoma
I have the same problem on my 2005 Tacoma dbl cab pickup when it just passed 100K miles. Thanks for the tips in this website. I took out the temp/compass unit very carefully. And went to Radio Shack to buy a soldering kit ($7.99-the cheapest price I can find). It only take 10 min. to resolder C510 and put every thing back again. It works perfectly. I think Toyota need to improve this product in the future.

The failure of the compass / ambient temperature display is a common issue with 2005 to 2009 Tacomas, and if you fixed it by resoldering the old surface mount resistors, it will fail again.
However, we permanently fix the problem using all new components and a lead wire underlayment as a heatsink. See our site for more info: http://www.toyotatacomacompassrepair.com

My 2005 Tacoma's temperature and compass display went out a few months back too. On Saturday I decided to GOOGLE for some help and I read mschaefer255 explanation from July 24th, 2009. I must say I was glad I visited this site because Shaefer's explanation is on the money! I found the 510 ohm resistor and one was loose. I went to Autozone and bought an electrical soldering tool for about $9 and WALA! My display is working again. Thanks for the assist Schaefer!

I am not sure if that module has a back light but if it does you can replace it yourself if you know how.
The best way otherwise is to replace that module.

SOURCE: where can i find a replacement
Mark, do you need a replacement for your accessory meter (this is what Toyota calls them) or do you need yours repaired? Replacements can generally be found on ebay for about $200.
However, my company repairs these in a manner that precludes the problem from happening again (we use new components, and a heatsink to prevent debonding). Repair includes a one year warranty on our work!
Check out our website, and feel free to contact me with questions.
