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
