    First time poster here but have "lurked" from time to time for a while.

    I have a 2007 Tacoma with the temperature gauge/electronic compass over head center. This cluster also has sunglasses holder and the two over head lights.

    The temperature gauge/electronic compass no longer lights up. No amount of pressing the button (this cycles it from std. to metric to off) will turn this display back on. For a week or so it worked intermittently. No it's a total no go.

    Anyone have any experience with this? How to trouble shoot, good source of replacement parts, etc.?

    Thanks in advance!

    -Kevin

    Mission accomplished gentleman. It was pretty easy. I will share with the 3 other Tacoma owners I work with... theirs may fail next!

    Now I need a new windshield (rock crack)... been one damn thing after another this week...
