SOURCE: How do I remove the overhead console in my Ford

With the overhead console ( non rail system ), open the sun glass bin, and grab each corner in the back, and pull down.

The overhead is held on with 4 or 6 spring clips, and pulls straight down.

The bulbs are 1/4 twist sockets installed from the back of the overhead console.

SOURCE: changing overhead consol for non-working compass

I am looking into the fuse that controls this. Typically it controls several other components so if other components (for instance the radio, dome lights, gauge, etc) do not work then it is a fuse issue. More often than not, it is the computer module itself.
You can get a replacement from Ford but I believe it costs $500+.
I offer a repair service with a lifetime warranty. Check it out:

WHERE IS THE REMOTE COMPASS MODULE ON A 2008 JEEP COMMANDER


wow no symptoms stated just the boring where is it...
but great question, names car and year, clearly
we've posted the full fsm online here 100s of times.
here we go again.
down load it, then type , (after opening it)
control F, the type compass.
i wonder if a compass car has compass , omg.
i have 2010 and have same book.
did you scan the PCM yet, i bet not.
and its guess what, telling why it fails right now.
see page 8M-6 in book FSM.
the dtc shows car needs degaussing,, now.... see?
and if that error happens the compass goes blank, RTM?

8m-20
calibration, RTM
replacing first is "overthetop", why go there.
first are scans then tests.
or needs just a degaussing... (a tool)
page 27
"NOTE: In addition to the Universal Transmitter
operation the Electronic Overhead Module (EOM)
is responsible for some of the compass functions.
Anytime the EOM is replaced the compass variance
value must be set, (Refer to 8 - ELECTRICAL/
OVERHEAD CONSOLE/ELECTRONIC VEHICLE
INFO CENTER - STANDARD PROCEDURE - COMPASS
VARIATION ADJUSTMENT)."
not only that the PCM can lose commmications with this OEM.
so not scanning all modern cars, is a road to doom.
why skip scanning the car first and checking fuses.?????

scan first
ask questions 2nd.
my motto.... and WIN

Changing the interior map light


The bulbs is replaced from the back of the overhead console with 1/4 turn bulb holders.

the overhead console ( non rail version ) is held up with spring clips.

Open the rear compartment, and grab the rear corners and pull down 1 at a time. They are very hard to pull the 1st few times. Once you have the read released, there is another set of spring clips in the front, so be careful how far down you pull the rear, until the front is released.

Once you can see the back of the overhead console, you will see the 1/4 turn bulb holders for the map and interior lights.

How do i remove the top console where the compass is located in a 2003 ford sport trac


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
