It is actually 1 or 2 resistors that have come unsoldered.

If you have a fine point soldering iron, you can repair it. Might want to stop by Radio Shack or the likes and pick up 2 or 3 58 ohm resistors.

Remove the screw from the bottom of the overhead console, and pull down to release the spring clips.

Unscrew the PC Board from the housing, and look at the surface mounted resistors ( they should be marked 580 on them ).

This is what I am talking about on a SuperDuty over head console ( this has 62 ohm resistors / marked 620 )

Pat on F150online.com did a nice write up on this for a F-150 overhead console ( I never got around to taking pictures of a F-150, only the SuperDuty Console ).
Check the Technical Articles / How To forum for a thread titled overhead console repair ( think that is it ).

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.
This is a very common problem with the 05-09 Tacoma. The console is very prone to internal failure. 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 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+.
