I read on some board that their D light for "drive" on dash was burnt out. I went out to check my D and it worked. The next day it went out :(. Thanks to who ever posted that message :p. Now I have to fix mine.
What does the bulb look light or part #. I have several Toyota tiny bulbs on hand?

There is a thread by Cary or Curran?? about a month ago on this with directions on how to pull the dash. The part No's are listed. See if you can beat the 30 minute estimate

It's not that difficult a repair. It's easier if you pull the steering wheel, but it's not necessary. Just be careful putting the dash back together so you don't break the delicate plastic pieces.

I think I see a 90072-02005 in the lower right-hand corner ::)

It looks like you could use a few bin boxes. :eek:


Dayton makes the ones I use. :D

DO NOT PULL THE STEERING WHEEL IF YOU HAVE AN AIRBAG TRUCK. You can hurt or kill yourself. Only pull the wheel on a 94 or earlier. :eek:

Kurt,

Do you keep the box in the truck, or do you keep those parts at home?

I have a rack that slides in the receiver that would fit the bin just fine.
Mostly it is seals/gaskest and other parts that I haven't got around fix-n yet. Next time I will order a full gasket set for the whole vehicle. It would be much easier then ordering them one at a time.

Sorry, Kurt. :-[
I started that thread last month (msg10853) about the dead D for Drive Light. There was a step-by-step repair posted on the thread, but I haven't attempted it. I've got a fair amount of highway driving coming up, and I'd just as soon have a dark dashboard for night driving -- and IIRC the rheostat doesn't dim the D-rive light.
Frankly it was funny, since I also posted the question to the Oz-dominated 80Scool board -- and it sounds like there isn't a working D-rive light in all of Oz :D

LT, the message is not searchable from my computer. It must of got lost in the switchover :( I have a FSM so I don't need the post to pull the dash but I just couldn't remember where I saw the post. I might of read it on the OZ site,oopps that is the other site :eek:. Sorry Woody my eyes tend to stray a bit but I will be faithfull :D

Kurt,
Looking at your parts bin and seeing all those O-rings and seals, it's no wonder your truck leaks like a sieve. When you put on a new part you need to use the gaskets, O-rings, and seals; it helps. ::)

The only leak now is the front pinipon seal, again :mad:
It is super slow leak. I will use sealant around the seal this time.
