    It seems like this is a very common problem on Tacomas. In fact, mine is out right now! haha. I was told there is some soldering involved in fixing it and that's pretty much when I was like nevermind. :p

    I was able to take the overhead console off today thanks to the great posts on TWF. It was pretty easy and I got the unit off ok the only trouble was the little plastic clips on the smoked cover. The little resister or what ever was easy to spot and I just soldered it back down. Thanks to all thein put the posts on the site.
