You need to recalibrate the compass. The procedure is in your owners manual. Here are the basic steps.
First, you will need to verify that your compass zone is set to your current geographic location. Since I do not know where you are located, I cannot tell you the code. They are listed in the manual. (For example, So Cal is zone 5.)
Second, here is the compass calibration adjustment procedure:
Perform this adjustment in an open area free from steel structures and high voltage lines. For optimum calibration, turn off all electrical accessories (heater/air conditioning, wipers, etc.) and make sure all vehicle doors are shut.
1. Start the vehicle.
2. To enter the compass calibration mode, press and hold the button for greater than eight seconds. The display will then show CAL in the display window.
3. Drive the vehicle slowly (less than 3 mph) in circles until CAL indicator turns off. As many as 5 complete circles may be required.
4. The compass is now calibrated.

im taking an educated guess- ive done it maybe once or twice in a chrysler- try to go into the MENU by hitting the buttons for menu and reset. if u luck out it will say something like calibrate or calibrate compass on the screen. now it will either tell u what to do or if not drive carefully in a small circle slowly clockwise and then counterclockwise several times. as youre doing this it might suddenly pop up "calibration complete" or something similar. i almost forgot- IF U HAVE THE OWNERS MANUAL ,LOOK IN THERE 1ST. if not try what i said.

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.
