Could be a fuse, or it came unpluged behind it.

WHERE IS THE REMOTE COMPASS MODULE ON A 2008 JEEP COMMANDER


wow no symptoms stated just the boring where is it...
but great question, names car and year, clearly
we've posted the full fsm online here 100s of times.
here we go again.
down load it, then type , (after opening it)
control F, the type compass.
i wonder if a compass car has compass , omg.
i have 2010 and have same book.
did you scan the PCM yet, i bet not.
and its guess what, telling why it fails right now.
see page 8M-6 in book FSM.
the dtc shows car needs degaussing,, now.... see?
and if that error happens the compass goes blank, RTM?

8m-20
calibration, RTM
replacing first is "overthetop", why go there.
first are scans then tests.
or needs just a degaussing... (a tool)
page 27
"NOTE: In addition to the Universal Transmitter
operation the Electronic Overhead Module (EOM)
is responsible for some of the compass functions.
Anytime the EOM is replaced the compass variance
value must be set, (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/
OVERHEAD CONSOLE/ELECTRONIC VEHICLE
INFO CENTER - STANDARD PROCEDURE - COMPASS
VARIATION ADJUSTMENT)."
not only that the PCM can lose commmications with this OEM.
so not scanning all modern cars, is a road to doom.
why skip scanning the car first and checking fuses.?????

scan first
ask questions 2nd.
my motto.... and WIN

Compass stuck on NE position and reads wrong fuel mileage. where can i buy one or how would i fix it.


If the lights in the overhead console work then it is not a fuse, it is a bad console. These units are poorly designed and fail frequently. We offer a repair service with a lifetime guarantee. Check out www.autoclockrepair.com. Drop us a note if you have any questions, thanks!

The compass and outside temp on my 2006 Toyota Tacoma quit working. Is there a fuse for this unit and where would I find it?


Are your cruise control, dome, and tail lights also out? If so then it is a fuse. If not then the control unit has gone bad internally. You may be able to get it fixed under your warranty.
If it is not covered by your warranty, check out
www.autoclockrepair.com. We offer a very reasonable repair solution.

Is there a fuse for the overhead compass/temp dispaly for a 2006 Toyota Tacoma and where is it located?


The 10 amp IGI #2 fuse controls several other components including the dome light, cruise control, and brake lights. If these are working but the compass is dim, intermittent, or dead then the control module has gone bad. You can get a replacement from toyota but I believe it costs $500+.

Outside temp light and compass dont work. what can i do to fix it?


Do the map lights in the overhead console / Illuminated vanity lights work?

This is the same fuse, Cab fuse panel fuse #23 ( hot in run position ).

If the map lights & vanity mirrors on the visors work correctly, it is the solid state module in the overhead console that is the problem ( have seen this, more common on SuperDuty line ).\
