    Hey guys, this is my first post ever on Tacoma World. I've been a huge fan since I bought my 06.
    I recently did the gauge led swap, put her back in and noticed the all the gauges work correctly other than the speed-o??? It will some times work, I shut the engine off then when I turn the key again it stutters and begins to point downwards and then not work at all.
    For those who have done the led swap, have any of you come across this issue before?

    Do the lights work? Or does the needle just not move? Does it stay at 0 or is it below zeros?

    Mine had the same problem when I first bought it, very intermittent. Now it seems to have repaired itself. I have no idea for a fix.

    I cleaned off where I had soldered with some isoprop, reset the needles and it seems to be working thus far... Maybe it's like 707's truck and will fix itself...
    Thanks 4 the reply's guys.

    This worked for me. If you have this problem again, try removing the cluster glass only. Do not undo the plugs for the cluster. Do not remove the cluster bolts. The glass will be easy to remove. There are 8 tabs to push down and forward. 4 on the top, 4 on the bottom. Once the glass is removed, be very careful and rotate the needle counterclockwise and stop at 0. The needle will need to bend alittle going around the bottom part of the cluster to do this, hence the careful. Put the key in the ignition and turn the engine over and take it for a test drive. This should work. The needle should return to zero and not below. If this doesn't work then try option 2. Put the key in the ignition and turn to 'ON' but do not turn over. Rotate the needle counterclockwise and stop at 0. Turn the ignition off, pull the key out. Put the key back in and turn over and test drive. If this still doesn't work, then try a hard reset and unplug the longer cluster plug (left side) and leave unplugged for a few minutes and then plug back in and try option 1. If not, then do the same and try option 2.

    I had this issue when I decided to change the glass only in my Taco. The glass was so scuffed up it was hard to see the cluster in the daytime. I took everything apart and when I plugged everything back in, the speedometer needle fell below zero and wouldn't recalibrate/reset. Turning it counterclockwise while in the on or off position should reset the speedo to 0.
