Does anything in the display work at all or is it blank with no lights at all.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
no display, like no power is there to light up the display. It has a digital readout for outside temp. and compass direction.
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.
I see you checked the fuses. Have you checked to see if getting voltage to the over head display with the key on?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes, the overhead lamp lights both work fine
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.

If you get power to the display and it doesn't light then you will need to replace the display as it has an internal problem.

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
that is what I first, and always have thought
Expert:  brownjeff replied 6 years ago.
Yeah if getting power it will need replaced.
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Ok, then my book says nothing about this, know how I would take the console down. I will pay you after this. Richy
