    My electrical engineer did the work on my 2004 MFD, after the local dealership quoted a $5,000 replacement cost.

    He says he'd be willing to do the work for others with '04 (and some '05) displays that have these "pin 60" problems:

    -- screen message that the Air Conditioning is not connected
    -- Audio Off and the console Power button for stereo ineffective
    -- No display of outside temperature

    e-mail me if you're on the EAST COAST and can bring your Prius to suburban Maryland for the repairs.

    His charge is 1/10th what the dealer wants.

    I have a broken MFD in a 2004 Prius and can drive to suburban Maryland. May I find out the name of the electrical engineer, please.
    Thank you very much.

    You can buy a used mfd on Ebay anywhere from 400.00 to 800.00 on ebay with 30 day to 90 day warranty.

    Or you can buy a $8 kit from Radioshack that has a soldering iron, desoldering wick, a stand, and some solder and have at it yourself.

    Call Steve at Plug In Hybrid Electric Vehicle PHEV and he will fix your MFD for a reasonable fee. It will require you to remove it and send it to him in Indianapolis and then reinstall it. Any car stereo shop can do the removal/reinstallation for you if you feel that you can't do it yourself using the instructions on Steve's web site. I fixed mine myself using the instructions at: Prius MFD thanks to the Hobbit.

    There is a place called BBA Reman in Taunton MA that can rebuild it for cheap money and give a lifetime warranty.
