Anyone install an overhead compass/temp console in 2nd gen 4 cyl

Looking to see if anyone successfully installed an OEM overhead temp / compass module (like the TRD's have) in a 2nd gen 4cyl.

I did install one but the compass will not calibrate nor does the temperature update (though the outdoor temperature displayed when the truck is first turned on is correct, it just won't update as conditions change).

Oh, just to nip in the bud any questions about how I did it (keep in mind I didn’t get it to work to my liking).


I purchased a brand new overhead console display for 2005 to 2008 model trucks. I have a 2010 SR5 4x4 I4 and know that the console is not plug and play, even though I have the plug in the ceiling of the truck, for the following reasons: 1) none of the consoles are plug and play to work for the 4cylinders, and 2) for the 6 cylinders they are plug and play to work if you get the right year console (i.e. Toyota changed the electronics for the consoles in 2009-2011 so 2009-2011 console will not work in a 2005-2008 6 cylinder truck nor will a 2005-2008 console work in 2009-2010 6 cylinder truck).


Following what I could piece together on this thread (http://www.tacomaworld.com/forum/2nd...s-install.html) I installed my temp/compass console into the overhead unit, plugged it in for power, ran 2 wires through from the console (pins 5 and 6) through the firewall to the front of the truck, and connected the wires to new temperature sensor (I don’t have the part number but it’s the temperature sensor for the 2005-2008 Tacoma) I purchased and that was it. After the temperature works initially but does not update unless the truck is shut of for a period of time, and the compass does not calibrate even though I know I am doing the calibration correctly

I have an 08 reg cab prerunner sr5 and I have a base sunglasses/map lights/garage door opener overhead console that have yet to meet. I don't think I have wiring for the map lights or the bracket under the headliner. Delay has set in as mod list priorities are evershifting. Supposing I need to start at junk yard and getting or cutting it off another truck. Been wanting to see more from the other thread about it that just faded away. Haven't checked that out lately.

Do you understand what they were saying in the reply?

What does "Our website will does not recognize replaced by numbers" mean?

I bought one from another TW member and it works just fine. Bought it with the temp sensor that goes behind the grill. The wiring for it was already in place in my truck.

I tried to order the part for my 2011. They initially said it was the complete assembly for about $300. Once it arrived, they realized that was only the temp/compass display and I need another part (the plastic around it). Total would have been about $900.

Yesterday, I ordered a Teltek temp gauge and will go with that. $55 is far more reasonable. May not look quite as nice, but life is full of compromises.

I did the same thing - bought the assembly on ebay for about $125 and then found the plastic bit around it for about $50 on ebay.

" Do you understand what they were saying in the reply? "

Not really ....I assumed it was a typo.....

@ afd23a So you used the 4.0 L gage ( 83290-04011 ) and all is good ?

And does anyone know if his 5 lug and our SR5 4 X 4 are similar in these particulars ?

I don't know exactly which type of truck it came from. I don't think the guy really said. You need to see if you have the factory wiring in place to connect the temp sensor on the support between the radiator and the front grill. I can't remember if there is anything special about the harness in the headliner. I thought there were some pictures on here somewhere....

Velco it on the dash, like an Ultragauge or Scangauge. I bought the one that is backlit and runs on a battery, so I won't have to wire it. The battery should last 10-12 months per Bob at Teltek. It is the Informer 1 Glow.
