    Worked for years (5) then worked intemittently for a couple of months then quit altogether. Other lights on the mirror work (Airbag light, auto dim works as well.) only the display light has a problem.

    I have the same problem. I have on-star on my mirror also and it still works.Is there a fuse for the temp/compass function?

    2003 Silverado did the same thing. Worked for 5 yr sthen started flickering. Now, nothing. Removed mirror housing and found 2 burnt resistors. Trying to find local electronics shop to replace them for minimal cost. See if that works.

Yes. Look in the Fuse Panel inside the Truck. Use a Good Maglight or LED Flashlight and Hold it Behind the Fuses to see the Blown Ones. It is usually in an AUX Outlet. Also check thr Fuse Relay Box under the Hood for a Blown Fuse using the Same Method. See if there is a Relay for this also. If so, Replace it. Let me know if you need any more Help!

SOURCE: OC code in rear view mirror temp field

you could always try unplugging the battery for about ten minutes to see if that resets it. make sure you have the code for the stereo first if it requires one.

The overhead console is quite prone to internal failure. Dim, intermittent, or dead displays are a common symptom of an internal failure. We offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee. Check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com

Sorry to hear your compass and ambient temp display isn't working. Unfortunately, this is a common issue with vehicles using this type of display. It probably isn't a fuse.

My company repairs these in a manner that precludes the problem from happening again (we use new components, and a heatsink to prevent debonding). Repair includes a one year warranty on our work!

How do you calibrate the compass on a 2002 Ford Windstar


Copied from alldatadiy.com for 2002 Ford Truck Windstar V6-3.8L.....


Compass Calibration

1. Start the vehicle and locate the compass module mounted on the base of the mirror.

NOTE: For optimum calibration, drive to an open, level location away from large metallic objects or structures. Switch off all non-essential electrical accessories (rear window defrost, heater, A/C, map lamps, wipers, etc.) and make sure all doors are shut.

2. Press the RESET button until RESET to CAL is displayed in the message center display.

NOTE: To exit the calibration adjustment mode before carrying out a compass adjustment, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

3. Slowly drive the vehicle in a circle no more than five times at no more than 5 km/h (3 mph) until CIRCLE slowly changes to CALIBRATION COMPLETED in the message center display.

I have 2002 Yukpn Denali XL. There is a OC code that appears in the rear view. What is the cause of this and how can I fix it?


The "OC" indicates your compass is "Out of Calibration". Below is the proceedure to recalibrate your compass.

Compass Calibration
The compass may need calibration if:
 After five seconds, the display does not show a
compass heading (N for North, for example), there
may be a strong magnetic field interfering with the
compass. Such interference may be caused by a
magnetic antenna mount, magnetic note pad holder
or a similar magnetic item.
 The compass does not display the correct heading
and the compass zone variance is set correctly.
In order to calibrate, the letters CAL must be displayed
in the mirror compass windows. If CAL is not
displayed, push in the COMP button for approximately
eight seconds or until the letters CAL are displayed.
The compass can be calibrated in one of two ways:
 Drive the vehicle in circles at 5 mph (8 km/h) or less
until the display reads a direction, or
 drive the vehicle on your everyday routine and after
several turns the compass will become calibrated and
will display a direction.

Good luck.

OC means out of calibration,,, go to a big parking lot and drive in circles,this lets the compass relearn its position,if this doesnt work,,take it to the dealer there may be something else wrong
