    I have a 1996 Prado deisel & a similar issue except that the guage display consel has become loose & is rattling, I tried to tighten it but to no avail. It appears the tightening mechanism lies behind the dash. How do I sort this out??

    To reset compass press the two arrow buttons at the same time until compass dial either flashes or letters are replaced with dashes, drive a full 360 degrees once or twice that should reset it. To tighten the consul you have to gently prise the centre of dash where the radio is located after undoing the ash tray by the two screws underneath, you need to use something to gently prise the centre consul from the rest of the dash wallpaper or freezer scraper as this is quite wide and fits in the small gap hope this helps Pete

I've been resetting pajero's compasses but try to get to an area where you can do 360 degrees turns (empty car parks, ) press the reset button and make 2 complete 360 turns slowly and normally this should set the compass bearing.
Let us know how you get on. Cheers.

Hi
I have a 1967 Toyota Prado (ex Japan) the compass does not move at all, but all the other bits (altimeter etc do). Does anyone know how to reset it or change it to make it register. Cheers Bruce

2001 Toyota Prado (exported from Japan). Compass reset procedure.


Hi, don't know if you figured it out, but I just (literally 10 minutes ago) calibrated the compass on my 2001 LandCruiser Prado by doing the following:

- Press the up and down arrows together until the inclinometer starts to blink.
- Then press the "Mode" button to switch to compass. The compass should start to blink.
- Drive your car in a 360 degree circle until the compass stops blinking.
- And that's about it.

Even though this is an old question I wanted to post the answer because I've been looking at this issue for a year and haven't found the solution online.

Please note that this page http://www.tlocuk.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2302&sid=327bc81ab3b0160e82d7863b3e6417f5 pointed me in the right direction although the instructions there caused the inclinometer to be re-calibrated in my car. I had to tinker around and I figured out that if I pressed "mode", it switched to compass calibration.

Regards,

danls
