Default Overhead Console not working

Has any had thier overhead just quit working? It doesnt lite up or anything. I have checked all fuses and they are all good. Have tried unhooking both batteries to reset the ecm but nothing. The dealer of course just says to bring it in (not under warranty).

Unhooking the batteries will do nothing not even reset the ECM or PCM.

There is a ground that will become corroded. It is located just behind the drivers side kick panel next to the E/brake.

It is a mass connection back there.

I think you may have to take to the dealer. My 03 overhead would once in a while quit reading. It still would lite up but just had 2 horizontal lines and the only functions that worked was km and engine hours. Then after a while or shutting the truck off it would start working again. The dealer replaced it with a new module and no probems in 4 years.

Ok, I bought a new overhead display. Now how do you take the old one out? Does the plastic cover just pop off? Do i have to drop the headliner?
Any help would be appreciated before I tear something up.

No drop the headliner.

Open the garage door opener case or what ever it has just behind the lights. There are two clips , depress towards the rear and pull the console to the rear and down.

Did they change it on the newer trucks? All i had to do is pop the clear light covers off and there are 2 Torx20 screws to remove then it pops off.

I got home and the surrond that holds the 2 lights and the module just pops right out. No screws or anything. Just pull straight down on front, then the back. took out 4 screws that hold the module in place and unplugged harness. Plugged in new module screwed it down, turned on key and NOTHING. Still not working.
I guess nothing left to do except take to dealer. Ugh!
