Compass not working on 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis


Electronic Compass The compass display and module are contained in the overhead console and are replaced as an assembly. For additional information, refer to Section 501-12 . The compass display can be turned off and on by pressing the MODE button in the overhead console. The vehicle heading is displayed as one of N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, or NW.
Inspection and Verification
NOTE: Press the MODE button to turn on the display.
  1. Verify the customer concern by operating the vehicle along roads of known direction to duplicate the customer concern with the compass.
  1. Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical or electrical damage.


Visual Inspection Chart Mechanical Electrical

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.

What is calibrate compass on 2004 Buick Rendezvous


Manual Compass Calibration If the compass appears erratic and the calibration symbol does not appear, you must manually put the compass into the calibration mode. To get into this mode, do the following: 1. Turn the ignition on and cycle the DIC to the compass/temperature mode. 2. Press and hold the SET button for longer than three seconds. ZONE # PRESS & HOLD SET TO CHANGE: This display mode will be displayed when you are manually calibrating the system. The current zone number for compass variance will be displayed in place of the # symbol. Use the SET button to select the zone number from the graphic shown to select the current area of the country that you are driving in. PRESS SET TO CALIBRATE COMPASS: After selecting your zone, press the MODE button and this will be displayed on the DIC. Press the SET button and complete three 360 degree turns in an area free from large metal objects. The following two messages will toggle in the display until you calibrate the compass: • DRIVE VEHICLE IN CIRCLE • CALIBRATING COMPASS When calibration is complete, the display will return to its normal mode. 3-61 info obtained from MANUAL OWL

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.

Our outside temperature display on our dash now says zone 9, not the outside temperature, on our 2002 Ford Explorer. How do we fix it to display the temperature again?


The zone nine is for the compass you need to calibrate the compass. and then you temp will work again. check the owners manual if you do not have one call the service department at a ford dealer they should be able to help you.

I have 2002 Yukpn Denali XL. There is a OC code that appears in the rear view. What is the cause of this and how can I fix it?


The "OC" indicates your compass is "Out of Calibration". Below is the proceedure to recalibrate your compass.

Compass Calibration
The compass may need calibration if:
 After five seconds, the display does not show a
compass heading (N for North, for example), there
may be a strong magnetic field interfering with the
compass. Such interference may be caused by a
magnetic antenna mount, magnetic note pad holder
or a similar magnetic item.
 The compass does not display the correct heading
and the compass zone variance is set correctly.
In order to calibrate, the letters CAL must be displayed
in the mirror compass windows. If CAL is not
displayed, push in the COMP button for approximately
eight seconds or until the letters CAL are displayed.
The compass can be calibrated in one of two ways:
 Drive the vehicle in circles at 5 mph (8 km/h) or less
until the display reads a direction, or
 drive the vehicle on your everyday routine and after
several turns the compass will become calibrated and
will display a direction.

Good luck.

Buick Rendezvous 2002 need codes?


the BCM needs to be programmed to operate the computer. a GM techII is now required to calibrate BCM to airbag, stereo, keyless entry, and control pcm data. This is required to make it all work. a gm service should have it done within an hour or less just call and ask them how much it would be to program new BCM. it might cost @$75 to $125 but it is needed, to allow the BCM to work properly.

Compass out of whack


You need to recalibrate the compass. The procedure is in your owners manual. Here are the basic steps.

First, you will need to verify that your compass zone is set to your current geographic location. Since I do not know where you are located, I cannot tell you the code. They are listed in the manual. (For example, So Cal is zone 5.)

Second, here is the compass calibration adjustment procedure:

Perform this adjustment in an open area free from steel structures and high voltage lines. For optimum calibration, turn off all electrical accessories (heater/air conditioning, wipers, etc.) and make sure all vehicle doors are shut.
1. Start the vehicle.
2. To enter the compass calibration mode, press and hold the button for greater than eight seconds. The display will then show CAL in the display window.
3. Drive the vehicle slowly (less than 3 mph) in circles until CAL indicator turns off. As many as 5 complete circles may be required.
4. The compass is now calibrated.
