If the compass appears erratic or inaccurate, and the variance has been properly set, you may wish to manually recalibrate the compass. To manually calibrate the compass:

1. Start the engine. Leave the shift lever in PARK in order to enter the EVIC Programming Menus.

2. Press and release the MENU button until “Personal Settings” displays in the EVIC.

3. Press and release the DOWN button until “Calibrate Compass Yes” displays in the EVIC.

4. Press and release the SELECT button and the “CAL” indicator will start flashing.

5. Drive the vehicle slowly (under 5 mph / 8 km/h), completing one or more circles (in an area free from large metal or metallic objects) until the “CAL” indicator turns off. The compass will now function normally.
