I have an '09 TRD Access Cab. I have NOT had the failure (yet), and overall am happy with my truck. However, I find that this display is hard to read in sunlight, and it is in a terrible position for the driver. Has anyone installed a more useful display in this space?
Are you driving around with your headlights on? I leave mine on all the time, and can't see the display, as it dims when the lights are on. The link below is a thread which bypasses the dimmer when the lights are on. Still need to do the clock mod.
IF you don't leave your lights on, never mind, I got nothing to help.
