What should I mold into my explorer OHC?

I have a 2003 B3000. I picked up a overhead console out of an explorer from a junk yard and wired it up, only to find it didnt work (the electronics are whacked). I bought a replacement off eBay that ended up being completely dead (nothing would turn on at all). I quadruple-checked my wiring with a multimeter. The right wires are getting the right amount of juice at the right time.

Anyways, I give up on it. I have this gaping hole in my headliner where I installed it, so I can't take it down. But I don't want it up there when the lights and temperature display don't work right. So...what can I fab that into? I was thinking of putting a back up camera monitor in there, but I think the cameras are too expensive. Please toss out any ideas you'd have for what I could mold into the display/light area. Its about 4" wide.
