Compass Recalibration

Hello...I hope someone has an fix for this. Since I bought my used 2008 F350 KR, the compass always displays a calibrating notice and tells me to circle slowly to calibrate. I have done this numerouse times but it seems to come back all the time. Sometimes the message lasts for 1 second, sometimes up to 10 seconds. Is there a way to stop this message from appearing? Am I doing the compass calibration incorrect? Thanks.

Never had any problems with the compass calibration, the process is very straightforward, you need to circle very slowly in open spaces, away from electric lines and tall buildings. I don't know is theres a way to get rig of the warning message but I'll check my owners manual to see if I find something.

Thread from the dead...

You ever get this resolved? I just bought an 09 that does the same thing... Sometimes the message flashes for a second, sometimes a few seconds, then I get "calibration complete" and I haven't done anything...

I had my fingers crossed opening this thread. Bought my 08 f350 Lariet about 5 months ago it has had a ( -- ) in the dispaly the whole time. I've tried a couple of times and no luck. I guess I should be happy I atleast don't get the notice to calibrate.
