Default 2002 F150 Compas and thermometer

Hello, my 2002 F150 overhead compas and outside thermometer display recently went out. Before going completely out, it came on once in a while. I haven't found any burnt fuses. The only other electrical anomoly is that the OD light on the shift *** comes on ocassionally and the OD is not disabled. Thanks.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread. But I have a question pertaining to the subject.

I have a 2010 f150 xl. It looks like there is a digital read out nested in the right hand corner of the radio display.

Is that what I see?
Can it be made functional?

Default compass display

My compass display recently went out. I to checked for fuses but found none. I began tearing the console off. Then taking it apart. I was able to pull out the circuit board for the compass and therm. It was pretty simple. I found a loose chip on the circuit board and i was able to solder it back on. Then plugged it back in to check and it worked. I put it all back together and resolved the problem.

I bought my truck with the compass/temp display already on the blink. I took it out and it looks to be fried in the lower right corner of the glass/led/display. Anyone know how/where another can be found?

I also found a lot of metal shavings, I assume, from the factory. I can't help but wonder if some of the shavings could have caused a short to occur while with the previous owner.

That "brown/gray" burn mark on the display is normal, my 02 has the same mark. On mine the compass went out and it was a loose chip that needed to be re-soldered. You have to look closely at the chips and nudge them very slightly to find the loose one. Theres another post here somewhere with pics describing the whole fix. Found the link:

I made a DIY guide for this a few weeks ago. Here's the link

If you click on "How to Submissions" it will be there, also.
