How can I remove the cover to the overhead compass / thermometer in my 2002 ford sport trac? The lights work but the compass and temp do not. I see all over that there are 2 diodes to check, but I can't get the cover off.

My 2003 Ford Sport trac compass/temp no longer work. Is there a fuse and if so which one is it that should be replaced?


This is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. If the dome lights work but the compass unit does not then it is a faulty computer unit. I offer a reasonable repair service with a lifetime guarantee, check it out: www.autoclockrepair.com
There is a bunch of useful info there. Drop me an email if you have questions, thanks!

How do I turn my overhead console back on? I think I accidently deactivated it,


Press the mode button. If it does not turn back on then you have a problem with the console. This is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. If the dome lights work but the compass unit does not then it is a faulty computer unit.

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

I believe that the mirrors and entry issues are not related to the overhead console. Compass/temp failure is a very common problem with many of the mid 2000 Ford truck and SUV overhead consoles. The console is very prone to internal failure. If the dome lights work but the compass unit does not then it is a faulty computer unit.
