SOURCE: 2001 jeep grand cherokee the compass/temp

Before replacing the module ($$$$) check the temperature sensor at the front of the vehicle behind the bumper or grill. A reading of -40 indicates a high resistance (NTC resistor sensor). This is probably due to water ingress on a connector causing the high resistance. But could be a bad sensor too. You can also check the module by unplugging the temperature sensor and shorting the two wires that go back to the module together. Shorting the two wires together should show an off scale high reading like 120 or 130 degrees. If it does then the module is OK the problem is the wiring or the sensor. You can use this method to check the wiring all the way up to the module incase there is high resistance in the wiring between the module and the temperature sensor.

test the gauge compass +full , for open , corrosion, wires. 2) resistor open normall by 10 ohms 3) maybe can use the thermistor test for open or defective 3) test for open fuse or bad contact fuse, dirty or corrosion or loose wiring.
you can go for download the diagram to www.autoelectronico.com this web is spanish however you can translate. I strong recomend you by powerful information update+links DOWNLOad free in PDF format. try it and fix it.

SOURCE: outside temperature reading -40 and outside temperature sensor has been replaced

had the same problem, it needs time to calibrate, you have to drive it over 19 miles per hour for at least 10 minutes or so and it should reset itself. I would just take it on a drive if you haven't done so yet.

How do I find the fuse on an impala 2002 for the.outside temperature and compass


There are two fuses one in the right I/P junction block an one in the left I/P junction block ! The right is marked DK / RKE 10amp fuse. The left is marked A/C / CRUSE 10amp fuse ! I don't think these are the problem ! These fuses supply power to the microprocessor in the driver information center . According to my service information the microprocessor supply's power to the ambient air temperature sensor an to the compass.
This mode displays an 8 point compass heading on the left hand side of the DIC. The compass will display the current vehicle direction relative to one of 8 compass headings using N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, and NW for the readout. The ambient temperature displays on the right hand side of the DIC. If the ambient temperature is below 3?°C (37?°F), the temperature reading will toggle between displaying the outside temperature and the word ICE for two minutes. If the temperature is less than minus 40?°F for more than 2 seconds, OC will display. If the temperature is above 140?°F for more than 2 seconds, SC will be displayed. If OC or SC is displayed DTC's will be set. For compass calibration and compass magnetic variation adjustment refer to Electronic Compass Calibration .

My rear view mirror with temp and compass sometimes will not work. It will show all the digital shows up at once and not the temp, but sometimes it works ok. What can I do?


Does the compass work when the temperature goes out? If the compass still works then chances are that the ambient temp sensor is defective. Also, could be wiring to the sensor. If the compass goes out with the temperature then chances are the mirror itself is defective. Cheapest most common problem is the ambient temp sensor. It's behind the grill by the condenser at the front of the vehicle.

I have an open circuit error and would like to fix it.


I would measure the resistance of the temperature sensor behind the grill. If its open, the sensor is bad. If it shows resistance, then you probably have a broken wire somewhere.
