What exactly do you do for $200? I've read many times all that's needed is for either a wire to be re soldered,or a fuse replaced. Can you give some specifics?

Reply: I had the same problem. Its the 510 chip that needs resoldering. Its easy to fix. Take the one screw (located by the eye glass compartment) off and pull the front down (display side) which is held in by clips. The temp/compass is connect with two connectors (easily uncouple) remove the display cover. You will see two small '510' chips. The lower one is the culprit. You'll see the solder melted away on one end. Just resolder with a light solder gun/pen. Very easy. Took 30 minutes to fix.

This works. For me both 510 chips were looking bad and needed to be resoldered on the right side. Just compare how they look to the others on the board and you can't miss it.

EVERYONE! This works! Dude, you are awesome! My 510 chips didn't even look bad, but my compass wasn't working. I followed these instructions and I've never soldered before. It took 15min, and it works perfectly now. Awesome! Thanks man. Saved me $200.

Wow it's that easy to repair. Just had my truck at toyota and they saiid it was burned out. I guess they want to sell new not repair. The replacement cost was 250. Thanks everyone.
