It is really easy to do. If you have a sunglasses holder (or a compartment overhead) open it and remove the 2 screws in the compartment. That should be it, from there just gently pull the assembly away from the roof, there are 2-4 clips holding the assembly in place. From there remove the main wiring harness and you are good to go. I have removal instructions with pics at www.autoclockrepair.com

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 is possible to temporarily fix it yourself (search google for forums), however the repair doesn't last long due to previous oxidation of the components.

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!

My compass and temp. gauge had quit working in my 2004 f250, i think it is a bad resistor but i can't seem to get the consoul off and i dont want to tear it up. any hints on how to. i dont see any...


Check for screws in the sunglass holder and also right behind the computer display. Many of the ford overhead consoles are not held by screws, just locking tabs. If you do not see any screws then give the console a gentle tug from the front corner. I have some pictures on how to do so (as well as a repair solution) at my website www.autoclockrepair.com
Good luck!

It could be the temp sender unit located in the engine compartment. Is this the only part of the console that is bad (ie the compass still functions)? Have you tried unplugging the battery to reset everything?

Readout in overhead console not working


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!
