Compass not working inn 2006 jeep grand cherokee

My compass in my 2006 jeep grand Cherokee stopped working. the outside temp still displays, but the compass does not. i tried to calibrate, held down temp-compass button, goes to variance, but then will not enter calibration mode, just goes back to just displaying the outside temp.

    Compass for my 2007 Jeep Commander displays as "--" Temp displays correctly. When I try to enter calibration mode, it will not let me, just returns to display of "--" and temp.

It's in the engine compartment IOD#2. It's a black module with two fuses in it. Take that module off and replace the 20 AMP one.

As you are turning the tailgate is flexing.
If you adjust the striker to get the tailgate to close tighter, it should fix your problem.

All that info is actually relayed from the PCU which is expensive to replace.
Have a certified dealer look at it before you go replacing parts.

SOURCE: calibrating compass

Yes you can.What you have to do is press the mode button on the driver info center(DIC).Press and hold the set button for 3 seconds.The DIC will display the zone.This is what part of the country you live in.What state your in.I don`t know what Zone your in so I don`t know if it is in the correct zone or not.They go from i-15.This will determine how accurate your compass will be.If you press set it will change the zones.If it is the correct zone then press the mode set button til the DIC displays calibrate compass.Press set and the DIC will tell you to drive in circles.Find a large empty parking lot to do this.I just crank the steering wheel and keep going in circles.The DIC will say calibrating.When the compass shows direction and temperature it is done calibrating and you can stop driving in circles.Hope this helps.Good luck.If you need to know what Zone your in Just post back with the state you live in and I can tell you the zone.

Our outside temperature display on our dash now says zone 9, not the outside temperature, on our 2002 Ford Explorer. How do we fix it to display the temperature again?


The zone nine is for the compass you need to calibrate the compass. and then you temp will work again. check the owners manual if you do not have one call the service department at a ford dealer they should be able to help you.

Everything has stopped working in my 1993 jeep grand cherokee limited edition. the door locks do not work. my compass/temp gauge has stopped working. the signal lights no longer work. my heat/and air no...


does the car start? if it doesnt...then your battery is dead. see if it"ll jump start at least for awhile, if it does and dies again...your alternator could be bad and not charging the battery.
