These consoles are notorious for going bad. You can get a new one at the dealership for $250 (!!!), grab one from a wrecker, or I offer a repair solution with a lifetime guarantee. Check out I have removal instructions and info there. Please let me know if I can be of further help, thanks!

'05 - '09 Tacoma temp and compass gauge displays commonly 'burn out' due to component failure on the circuit board; this is not due to a fuse, and the dealership charges $200 or more for the new part.

However, we permanently fix the problem using all new components and a lead wire underlayment as a heatsink. See our site for more info:

Check engine light went on today in my 2008 tacoma the tacoma has 37000 miles

Stop by a local Autozone or any good auto parts store and have them do an OBII scan for you. Most will do it for free. They read the fault codes and let you know what triggered light. Have them reset the light for you also.

I need to remove the overhead temperature/compass display on a Toyota 2006 Tacoma. There are some solder joints on the board that keep coming loose and on two occasions over the past few years I have paid...


I run the service that repairs these displays ( )
In order to remove yours, remove the single screw from the sunglasses compartment, then gently pull down on the entire console on the end nearest the windshield. There are two clips that will pop out. Now disconnect the wiring, and pull down the console. Using a #10 torx, you can remove the display unit (accessory meter).


Hope this helps!
