2005 Grand Cherokee Limited digital compass issue

Hey guys,
So this is my first post. My name is Joe and I'm the proud owner of a 5.7 GC 2005.
My issue is every time I restart the car the compass indicates "N-cal"
its getting a little annoying. any input would help.
thanks

That indicates your compass is in calibration mode. Usually, if you go into a parking lot and do a circle or two it will re-calibrate and the message should disappear.

If the message keeps appearing after the compass has been calibrated, you may be in an area with some weird magnetic disturbances going on (unlikely) or there is something else wrong.

Thanks for the reply. Yes I have done that and it does solve the issue but only until the next ignition cycle. Basically everytime I start it up its in "cal" mode

Re: 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited digital compass issue

Over on other forums, I've heard of other people having the same issue, but I did not see a solution ever posted.

Not sure what the best next step is. It may very well be the sensor itself, which I think is part of a module (PN#56050243AH, I believe). Likely a few hundred to buy a replacement...
