Question about 2000 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cabs

1 Answer

Compass, temperature, gas mileage not displaying

I have a 2000 F250 diesel truck. Just above the windshield in the headliner, is the unit that displays a compass, outside temperature, and gas mileage. A few days ago, it all went blank. I checked the owners manual but it didn't show that a fuse controlled any of that. Any ideas or do a need a while new unit?

I have a 2001 F250 Super Duty and it's doing the same thing. Blower motor will run when key is off. Speedometer does't work, overdrive light flashes


Had the same exact issues with my 2000 Diesel. Windshield seal was no good, water was getting to electronics. I replaced the windshield and all the problems stopped.

Good Luck

2004 f250 powerstroke console with compass, temp,


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!

The trip computer, mileage, and compass died on


I have the same thing happen to my '03 super duty F-350 6.0 and fixed it. Grab the entire console unit, lights and all and just pull straight down. Start with the side opposite the front windshield. It is a bit hard, but there are clips holding it. Pull the one plug off that is powering the console. On the back there is a large black plate with a black plug on it and a smaller black plate with a red plug on it. You will be working with the larger one. Pull off a white plug that is on the side of this larger black plate also remove the black plug on this one as well. Next unscrew the black plate and open it up by gently pulling on the clips. Be careful as there are a few resistors that might fall out. These are the problem. Once you open it up, you will see four resistors that all look the same. These come desoldered and cause this problem. Get a soldering iron and just hold it on one side of the resistor. If you look at it closely, you should see that one side of the resistor is no longer touching the circuit board. Do this to all the resistor sides that are not touching the circuit board. Hold the iron on this point for around 4 seconds or so. After removing the iron, check to see if the resistor stayed down. If it did, move on to the next one. DO NOT push on the resistor to see if it is good, just look to see if it is touching the board. Put it all back together and you are done. I did this to repair mine and it worked great.

I have 2000 ford f250 and the compass, temp, sensor screen on the headliner went blank. Is this just a fuse or is the whole thing bad.

Custom Rear view mirror


Hiya...ALL factory-installed rearview mirrors are installed with different wires due to options.
About 6 different rearview mirrors are installed with those options such as On-Star, light, compass, and those features which use different wires....THIS CANNOT be modified with different rearview mirror....**for example, the Equinox owner attempt to pull out a factory-installed base rearview mirror and put in different one that has compass/temperature built into the rearview mirror**

However, the wires are located inside the front headliner which requires removing the sunvisor (and possible removal of interior plastic trim part at the left/right ends of the windshield) prior to pull the headliner down, and a small metal philips or torx screw is used to secure the rearview mirror onto the bracket glued to the windshield.

The best solution is to leave the original factory-installed rearview mirror in place.
