    Hello,

    I am borrowing a 96 Tacoma and therefore do not have as much technical knowledge with this truck. Last week, both the blower (for AC) and the Temperature Gauge in the dash stopped working.
    The truck had just towed a trailor with rear lights. So I am in need of some technical support.
    Are these malfunctions related to the use of the trailor? AND MORE IMPORTANT, are the two malfunctions related to each other? It is really hot in St. Louis, and I sure would like some AC. Please email if you could as I am not too good with navigating around the forum. Did I overlook the wrong fuse? My email is dline9@gmail.com.
    Thanks for any and all help.

    Toyota is famous for their weird power routings. Check all the fuses: Engine compartment and behind the coin tray, drivers side, just below the mirror/fog lamp buttons.

    A blown 10A GAUGE fuse might explain it. Both the A/C and cluster circuits draw on this fuse. However, if the GAUGE fuse were blown you should have lost more functions than just the temp gauge.
