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!

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.

The temperature and compass are - silicongeek_10.jpg

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!

Outdoor temperature/compass gauge not working.


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!

My 2003 Ford Sport trac compass/temp no longer work. Is there a fuse and if so which one is it that should be replaced?


This is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. If the dome lights work but the compass unit does not then it is a faulty computer unit. I offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee, check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com
There is a bunch of useful info there. Drop me an email if you have questions, thanks!

Hello , I have 2003 Sport Trac. The overhead compass / panel does not work. Also the 12v. additional power source on lower counsil does not work. Can this be a fuse issue? If so, which one is it. Thank...


the fuse panel is usually labeled, it should read power port or power outlet. make sure there is nothing in the cigarrette lighter port or the power ports, children tend to place coins in them

Light to compass & temperature gauge


bad bulb or fuse, also check that you have a good ground behind that panel as the screws do sometimes come loose on SUV's (four wheeling, potholes, etc.)
