outside air temp and compass don't work

I just bought this 07 TRD Sport and after reading the owners manual I realized that the display for my outside air temp. and compass was not working. Everything else works fine, I looked at the fuse panel and couldn't see anything marked for this display and didn't see any blown fuses. Has anybody had this problem or know how to fix it without going to the dealer?

This is a well documented problem for the 2nd Gen Tacoma and has been covered many times on this forum. There's a search function on top where you can find many answers to questions about our trucks. If you have soldering skills, it's a simple fix. Use the link to see the fix action.
