overhead console

OK, I just purchased a console from a 95'zj and installed it on my 94'(mine quit working). Well everything works except the directions. When pointed North it says SW. I've tried pulling the battery cable. Any suggestions?

If you hold down both buttons and turn the ignition on it will perform a self test.

Manual states to use a stainless steel screw to mount it. And taking the vehicle in 3 complete turns will recalibrate it.


Mabye something has gotten magnetized near it, did you use a magnetic bit or something near it?

Dont have any magnetic satellite radio or magnetic cb antennas on the roof near it?

Its says make the turns in no less then 48 seconds.. Seems crazy to me

Supposely holding down the buttons will cause it to do a led segment test and run thru the compass stuff.. Ive never tried it
