Default Need a replacement overhead console for 2001 PT

Just bought this gorgeous beast (Limited Edition) from a neighbor, and would like to restore it a bit.

The sunroof doesn't work, and the map lights mostly don't work (one light goes on when the doors are opened, but neither light can be turned on by its switch). Presumably the overhead console needs to be replaced. My neighbor told me her mechanic quoted $500 to fix it - more than I can afford. I see instructions for removing the console at How do I remove the overhead console? (thanks).

Can anybody tell me where to buy a replacement console? I don't really care about the sunroof, but I would love to have the map lights and compass work.

~ Thanks in advance for your help!

Find a wrecking yard nearby. One from an '01 - '05 ought to work.

Check fuse #14 (20amp) in the dash fuse block.
If it is blown, the moon-roof and map lights fail.
Presumably the compass/ temperature display also is on this fuse. Fuse #13 protects the courtesy-door light functions.
