There is usually an OFFSET needed to have the compass work correctly. Specific settings should be specified in the owners manual, and you should be able to do this, as you would need to do so as you traveled long distances....

How to do I get the compass and temperature gauge to work in the rear view mirror again. Directions are NW and SE all the time


Calibrate the compass built into the upper-right corner of the rearview mirror by holding the compass button (an "N" with two crossing lines) until your zone number appears. Determine your zone number by looking at the map in the owner's manual. Press the compass button until a "C" appears. Then drive in a circle three times at 5 mph or less in an uncongested area. The compass will automatically orient as a result of the circling.

How do you calibrate the compass on a 2002 Ford Windstar


Copied from alldatadiy.com for 2002 Ford Truck Windstar V6-3.8L.....


Compass Calibration

1. Start the vehicle and locate the compass module mounted on the base of the mirror.

NOTE: For optimum calibration, drive to an open, level location away from large metallic objects or structures. Switch off all non-essential electrical accessories (rear window defrost, heater, A/C, map lamps, wipers, etc.) and make sure all doors are shut.

2. Press the RESET button until RESET to CAL is displayed in the message center display.

NOTE: To exit the calibration adjustment mode before carrying out a compass adjustment, turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.

3. Slowly drive the vehicle in a circle no more than five times at no more than 5 km/h (3 mph) until CIRCLE slowly changes to CALIBRATION COMPLETED in the message center display.

Compass direction wrong


Compass Calibration
Before calibrating the compass, drive the vehicle to an area that is magnetically clean or free of large metallic objects. Verify there are no magnetized objects on the inside or outside of the vehicle close to the mirror.

Start the engine.
Press and hold the switch for the compass, which may be depicted as COMP, COMPASS, or On/Off (w/UE1) depending on the type of mirror on the vehicle, until the letter "C" or "CAL" is displayed.
Drive the vehicle in circles at a speed of less than 8 km/h (5 mph) until the "C" or "CAL" is replaced by a proper vehicle heading. The calibration procedure is now complete.
Compass Magnetic Variation Adjustment
Magnetic variation adjustments are required when the compass displays a constant error in heading. Variation is the difference between magnetic north and true north due to geographical location.

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.
