If the lights in the console are functional then it is most likely not fuse related. These consoles are notorious for going bad. You can get a new one at the dealership for $250 (!!!), grab one from a wrecker, or I offer a repair solution with a lifetime guarantee. Check out www.autoclockrepair.com I have removal instructions and info there. Please let me know if I can be of further help, thanks!

Compass not working on 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis


Electronic Compass The compass display and module are contained in the overhead console and are replaced as an assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 501-12 . The compass display can be turned off and on by pressing the MODE button in the overhead console. The vehicle heading is displayed as one of N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, or NW.
Inspection and Verification
NOTE: Press the MODE button to turn on the display.
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the vehicle along roads of known direction to duplicate the customer concern with the compass.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical
  • Compass module
  • Central junction box (CJB) fuse 15 (7.5A)
  • Circuitry

  1. If an obvious cause for an observed or reported concern is found, correct the cause (if possible) before proceeding to the next step.
  1. If the fault is not visually evident, determine the symptom and GO to Symptom Chart .
Pinpoint Test A: The Compass Is Inaccurate/Inoperative
Normal Operation The compass receives battery voltage from the central junction box (CJB) through circuit 964 (DB/LG). Ground for the compass is supplied through circuit 676 (PK/OG).
    Possible Causes
  • fuse
  • circuit 676 (PK/OG) open
  • circuit 964 (DB/LG) open or short to ground
  • compass zone setting
  • compass calibration
  • compass module
PINPOINT TEST A: THE COMPASS IS INACCURATE/INOPERATIVE NOTE: Always set the zone and calibrate the compass before replacing an inaccurate compass.
NOTE: After installing a new compass, always set the zone and calibrate.
Test Step Result / Action to Take A1 CHECK THE OVERHEAD COMPASS DISPLAY
  • Key in ON position.
  • Check the overhead display.
  • Does the overhead compass display remain on after prove out?

  • Press and release the SELECT switch on the overhead console.
  • Does the overhead compass display turn on?
Yes
If the compass display turns on correctly, GO to A3 . If the compass display turns on, but the heading is inoperative/inaccurate or the display indicates VAR, GO to A4 . If the compass display turns on, but it does not display all directions, or indicates CAL, GO to A5 .

No
GO to A7 . A3 CHECK THE COMPASS DIMMING
  • Turn the headlamp switch to the parking lamps ON position.
  • Does the compass display dim?
Yes
TURN the headlamp switch to the OFF position. GO to A4 .

No
TURN the headlamp switch to the OFF position. GO to A8 . A4 CHECK THE COMPASS ZONE SETTING
  • Set the compass to the correct zone for your location. Refer to Compass Zone Adjustment in this section.
  • Does the zone adjustment set correctly?
Yes
GO to A5 .

No
INSTALL a new overhead console. REFER to Section 501-12 . TEST the system for normal operation. A5 CALIBRATE THE COMPASS
  • Calibrate the compass. Refer to Compass Calibration in this section.
  • Is the compass calibrated correctly?
Yes
GO to A6 .

No
INSTALL a new overhead console. REFER to Section 501-12 . TEST the system for normal operation. A6 CHECK THE COMPASS ACCURACY
  • Position the vehicle at each of the 8 directions (N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW) and verify that the displayed heading is accurate. The vehicle must be stationary for at least 10 seconds at each direction.
  • Is the compass display accurate in each direction?
Yes
The compass is OK. REVIEW the operation of the compass with the customer.

No
INSTALL a new overhead console. REFER to Section 501-12 . TEST the system for normal operation. A7 CHECK THE VOLTAGE SUPPLY TO THE OVERHEAD CONSOLE
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Overhead Console C930.
  • Key in ON position.
  • Measure the voltage between the overhead console C930-1, circuit 964 (DB/LG), harness side and ground.
  • Is the voltage greater than 10 volts?
Yes
TURN the key to the OFF position. GO to A9 .

No
VERIFY the CJB fuse 15 (7.5A) is OK. If OK, REPAIR the circuit. TEST the system for normal operation. A8 CHECK THE DIMMING CIRCUIT
  • Key in OFF position.
  • Disconnect: Overhead Console C930.
  • Turn the headlamp switch to the parking lamps ON position.
  • Measure the voltage between the overhead console C930-4, circuit 484 (OG/BK), harness side and ground while rotating the instrument panel dimmer switch.
  • Does the voltage vary between 0 and 10 volts?
Yes
GO to A9 .

No
REFER to Section 413-00 for further diagnosis of the instrument cluster and panel illumination. A9 CHECK CIRCUIT 676 (PK/OG) FOR OPEN

A/C blower and selector doesn't work, overhead console doesn't work


Sounds like this may be the actual control head that went bad, unfortunately there is no way to test for this other than to replace the control head, if the blower motor relay is good, and all the fuses are good, then that would probably be the most likely problem... hope this helps

2002 F-150 supercrew My coumpas-outside tem.quti working.Were is the fuse?


The overhead display is powered by the same circuit for the overhead console, so if the vanity mirrors still work, chances are the fuse is fine.

Just in case, push the button a few times, to make sure the display is not turned off.
The overhead displays have a chance of the surface mounted resistors becoming unsoldered over time.
You can get one at a junk yard, or if you are good with a soldering iron, you can reattach the surface mounted resistors. Pull the overhead console down, and remove the display ( T10 screws holding the display to the console ). There are 2 plastic tabs holding the display together, release these.
On the back of the circuit board, you are looking for a resistor that looks like this :

Need to access the heads up display control in a 2003 buick park avenue. Control is in overhead switch cluster with interior lights.


The overhead console with the heads up control in it is able to be carefully pried out by the little slot/opening on the back edge of the panel the switch is in. Use a flat screwdriver and slowly work it out by gently prying on the little retaining tab up in that slot. It is a small pain to work the panel out once it swings down due to all the other switches in there as well. The homelink module does slightly get in the way.
