Compass in Jeep 2009 jk stucking on SW

My Jeep is only 2 months old. I installed an Alpine CDA-105 and took out the factory RES stereo. I did this on Friday night. I just noticed on my way home that my Compass is stuck on SW.

Does anyone have any clues to why? Is there something with the new stereo thats causing it? I know the compass is located right above the stereo.

I searched the forum, but I kept getting stuff about the Jeep Compass automobile lol.

There should be instructions in your manual for recalibrating it.

yes there are, but, it doesnt say anything about it being stuck. I was going to try to recalibrate it tomorrow, but I thought it was odd that it was "stuck" on SW

RJ!

Look on Page 214 of your Manual for "Compass Calibration". Are you driving under 5-mph in an area free of buildings, powerlines, railroad tracks, etc.? Do you see the "CAL" symbol flashing or staying on, on your instrument cluster? The Manual shows how to do an Automatic Calibration and a Manual Calibration.

Best of Luck!

Cheers!

BB

The planet is actually spinning in an irregular way and aligning the magnetic poles according to your actions.
You, sir, are causing global warming, mass migrations of lemming populations in Norway, and general unrest at Garmin, Inc.
