Hi Roger, I'm glad to help. Below is the procedure for resetting the compass on your vehicle.



COMPASS VARIATION ADJUSTMENT Compass variance, also known as magnetic declination, is the difference in angle between magnetic north and true geographic north. In some geographic locations, the difference between magnetic and geographic north is great enough to cause the compass to give false readings. If this problem occurs, the compass variance setting may need to be changed.
To set the compass variance:

1. Using the Variance Settings map, find your geographic location and note the zone number Figure 1.

If the compass/thermometer data is not currently being displayed, momentarily depress and release the C/T push button to reach the compass/thermometer display. 3. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles depress the Reset push button and hold the button down until "VAR = XX" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the C/T push button and US/M push button down until "VAR = XX" appears in the display. This takes about five seconds. 4. Release the push button(s). "VAR =XX " will remain in the display. "XX" equals the current variance zone setting. 5. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles momentarily depress and release the STEP button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the US/M push button to step through the zone numbers, until the zone number for your geographic location appears in the display. 6. On Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC) and Compass Mini-Trip Computer (CMTC) equipped vehicles momentarily depress and release the RESET push button to enter the displayed zone number into the EVIC/CMTC module memory. On Compass Temperature Module (CT) equipped vehicles depress the C/T push button to enter the displayed zone number into the electronic module memory. 7. Confirm that the correct directions are now indicated by the compass.

Testimonial: "Hey, thanks. It was just that never doing that operation, I wasn't sure where the tabs were and was afraid it might crack the lens. Your solution was right on. Took about 1 minute and saved what Quick Lube place was charging to do the replacement plus the cost of the bulbs! Thanks again."

SOURCE: is there a recall for 2006 dodge grand caravan sxt

I have the same problem with my Grand Caravan 2000 model. I fixed it once where it cost me approx $1500. We travel on a lot of gravel and it is Winter here a lot. Because the lines are right behind the wheel on the passenger side (what a silly place for such and important piece). It broke again anyway and now another $1500. Not!
I did find after much searching some parts on StreetRodGuys.com . It is a couple of pieces that screw onto the lines going to the back....thereby blocking the rear air off. We really didn't use it that much anyway...the rear that is. They say that when you recharge it to use about a pound less freon when it is recharged. Part is around $50. I plan on using R12a which is colder freon than R134a or R12 so should work fine. Parts just came this week.

Makes it much more bearable in the heat.

SOURCE: how do I adjust the headlights on my 2006 dodge

With the vehicle sitting on a level surface, open the hood. On top of each head lamp towards the rear of them you will see to T10 or T15 Torx or star shaped screw heads. Each head lamp can be adjusted from left to Right and up an down using these screws. Both headlamps may also have small levels on each of them.
I suggest that you adjust you lights in a garage or at dusk if you don't have a garage making sure that you have them both level or about waist high at 3 feet away. You should also have them facing straight or slightly (5 degrees) to the right. This avoids people flashing their lights at you.

My 2007 checy impala read "calibration complete" what does that mean ????


CALIBRATION COMPLETE
Refer to Electronic Compass Calibration do you have an owners manual ?
Compass Calibration
The compass direction will show CAL if it needs to be calibrated. Before calibrating the compass, drive the vehicle to an area that is magnetically clean (free of large metallic objects).
  1. Turn ON the ignition.
  2. Before calibrating the compass, make sure the compass is set to the variance zone in which the vehicle is travelling. See Compass Magnetic Variation Adjustment below.
  3. Press the vehicle information button until the PRESS TO CALIBRATE COMPASS screen is displayed.
  4. Press the set/reset button to start the compass calibration.
  5. The DIC will display CALIBRATING: DRIVE IN CIRCLES. Drive the vehicle in circles at less than 8 km/h (5 mph) to complete the calibration. The DIC will display CALIBRATION COMPLETE when the calibration is complete.

2006 Expedition overhead compass reads "N" when heading "E". Wonder how to reset it so it indicates the direction accurately.


Yes. Wish I could tell you which button for sure, but to reprogram the Compass you hold one of the buttons and drive in a circle one or two times to reacquire your position.

How do you reset the compass??


  1. Stop the vehicle and place it in "Park."


  2. Press and hold the "Set" button on the compass for about two seconds. The button is located directly below the compass to the right.


  3. Press the "E/M" button repeatedly until the correct zone is displayed. If you do not know your zone, you might have to contact your dealer for this information.


  4. Press and hold the "Set" button for about two seconds until the display flashes, indicating that the compass is reset.

2001 Toyota Prado (exported from Japan). Compass reset procedure.


Hi, don't know if you figured it out, but I just (literally 10 minutes ago) calibrated the compass on my 2001 LandCruiser Prado by doing the following:

- Press the up and down arrows together until the inclinometer starts to blink.
- Then press the "Mode" button to switch to compass. The compass should start to blink.
- Drive your car in a 360 degree circle until the compass stops blinking.
- And that's about it.

Even though this is an old question I wanted to post the answer because I've been looking at this issue for a year and haven't found the solution online.

Please note that this page http://www.tlocuk.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?p=2302&sid=327bc81ab3b0160e82d7863b3e6417f5 pointed me in the right direction although the instructions there caused the inclinometer to be re-calibrated in my car. I had to tinker around and I figured out that if I pressed "mode", it switched to compass calibration.

Regards,

I've been resetting pajero's compasses but try to get to an area where you can do 360 degrees turns (empty car parks, ) press the reset button and make 2 complete 360 turns slowly and normally this should set the compass bearing.
Let us know how you get on. Cheers.
