Subscribed. I have been driving with mine like that for two years and would like it back. I have tried the recalibrate procedure and it didn't work. Let me know if you come up with anything.

Do you have a tuner? If so, return your truck to stock, and then reload the tune. Youll notice during the tune process, all your trucks info goes blank, until its finished uploading.

Check the plug connections on the compass itself, thats attached to your rear view mirror.

Try disconnecting the batteries for an hour.

There is actually a way to reset the compass. My dad had to do it with his '03... Not sure where he found the info, but I think it was in the owner's manual. Something to do with pressing the right button combo and then driving around in a circle until it resets. No joke...

I sent mine to a guy in Minnesota and he fixed it for $20.00. I found him through E-bay.
