    I checked this site a few days ago and saw a reference for the overhead accessary panel on the TRD Tacoma (mine is inop) but don't see it today. I was wondering if anyone can tell me how to check the pins that plug into the circuit board. I want to know if it's actually getting power.
    Can I buy the circiut board by itself?
    Any other info about the panel would be welcome.

    Here is a site I found when I was looking for information when buying my Tacoma.

    The specifications of all the models I thought could be useful.

    http://consumerguideauto.howstuffworks.com/1995-to-2004-toyota-tacoma-5.htm

    I was so set on what I wanted my truck to look like, that I never noticed their picture gallery before.... 6 thru 10??? WTF?? :confused:

    I liked reading about the trucks evolution too... stuff I didn't know! :cool:

    Auto or standard? Auto is usually through the dipstick for the transmission, manual is usually a drain bolt on the tranny. (I say "usually", because I haven't had to do it on my Tacoma, but I've done it on hundreds of other cars).
