    I have exactly the same problem. Just turned over the bike and the clocks didnt come on, the LCD side that is, the engine temperature and the time clock.



    After checking fuses, realised it wasnt them.



    I initially wondered if it was a loose block somewhere so pulled the whole bike apart nearly to open all the blocks, clean them and put them back together again as i had not long but changed over my loom as i had an electical fault on the old one.



    Anyway, still no joy, so rang a Honda dealer and got some advice, which basically said £200 BLOODY BRILLIANT........... or not so should i say..



    Anyway, i was told that the fi models were prone to water ingress on the printed circuit board at the back of the clocks(the green plastic cover with the brass flat circuit within it) and if these get wet they will rust or short out.



    Sure enough there are a couple of bits of the brass that were rusted and corroded, so it looks like ill have to get a new set of clocks and for out the huge sum as stated above, bloody hell, more money and its just after christmas.



    Unless, they can be repaired. Well i know a guy who is into electronics big time so im going to ask him if he can have a look, it wont harm i guess, either that or i run with no temperature gauge, which i dont like, not worried about the clock though.



    Hope this helps if you have a similar problem, or if you can give me more/better adivice then please do so.

Thats unfortunate, because you will have to buy a new gauge cluster, and those arnt cheap.

2008 Highlander Maint Req'd reset proceedure


This is the reset proceedure for a 2008 Highlander with a key-type ignition:

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine.

Look at the odometer, and verify that it displays "TRIP A". If it is on "ODO" or "Trip B", press the black stick next to the odometer to read "TRIP A".

Turn the key OFF.

Press in, and HOLD the black trip meter reset button, hold it IN.
DO not release it.

Turn the key ON, do not start the engine

Observe the Odometer display. You will see 5 dashes, then 4, then 3, then 2, then 1 dash, and finally, 5 zeros. Then, whatever number that was displayed on "TRIP A" will be re-displayed..

Now release the black trip meter reset stick.

This completes the reset procedure, and it will be back on in 5,000 miles, to remind you of you next oil change.

Display has faded out to the point where it is difficult to read. What to do to repair? Replace a new display screen? How much the cost to repair it?


As the display is manufacturer and model dependent probably your only bet is to get it to a repairshop able to order a new display. my guess is that it is either a fluorescent display and the gas inside it has somehow leaked out, or when it's a lcd display the lcd crystals tend to have a disliking for heat and fade out in the long run. The cost could be anything from a few dollars for the screen ( if it's a generic one) plus labour, up to whatever the manufacturer charges for a replacement screen and hours spent on replacing it.
