Calibrating The Compass In Your Overhead Console
How do you reset the compass light on a 2008 Lincoln MKX?
Start the vehicle. Press the RESET button until RESET FOR CAL/INFO TO EXIT is displayed in the message center display. Slowly drive the vehicle in a circle at no more than 5 km/h (3 mph) until SLOW CIRCLES TO CALIBRATE changes to CALIBRATION COMPLETED in the message center. The compass is now calibrated.
NOW PUSH BLACK BUTTON ON CONSOLE AND HOLD UNTIL COMPASS READS (VAR) AGAIN, KEEP HOLDING BUTTON UNTILL YOU SEE CALIBRATE. RELEASE BLACK BUTTON, DISPLAY WILL GO OFF AND COME BACK ON IN CAL. NOW DRIVE IN A CIRCLE FOUR OR FIVE TIMES. THE CALIBRATION MODE WILL GO OFF AND THE COMPASS SHOULD BE CALIBRATED AND READ PROPERLY.
