Thermometer and compass have stopped working

On my 2002 f150 the overhead console thermometer and compass have stopped working. I did a search and really didn't find this particular issue.

Anyone have any ideas about what could be the problem? I'm most great full for any information.

Is there a search or cracked windshield in the area of the censors?

No cracks and all of the rock chips get repaired right away. There is a heavy layer of muddy road grime from our recent Chinook weather.

Here is something you can try, http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/44...-gone-out.html
Mine doesn't work either, and I am planning on doing this procedure to see it fixes it. But so far have not had the time to do it.
