Climate control - "Mode" button failure

I have to believe this is common, but I'm not finding any posts on the forum. I have a 2007 Sequoia SR5, 4WD.

On the dash, we have the climate control panel, with the various buttons. The mode (feet, dual-zone, face, defrost) button simply does not work reliably. Sometimes, if I press it 30+ times, it changes the mode. Usually it doesn't.

Is this a common problem? Is there a common fix?

I've already pulled the panel and cleaned it with electronics cleaner... but it didn't work. I see lots of used control panels, but not sure I need to replace the whole thing.
