So a while back my compass wouldn't register but I was doing some radio work and had the compass module unplugged and I chalked it up to that. A month or so later my Average Fuel Economy quit working and the DTE was stuck at 255. I noticed this around the time that my local dealer fixed a recall so I thought maybe it was related. They checked it out and said it was a bad cluster.
Today they replaced it and got the same thing. They are blaming it on my aftermarket parts (I have a OEM interface and some stereo equipment in there). The funny part is this stuff has been in there long before the cluster problems started. That's typical of a dealer when they can't find the problem. This place was nice enough to warranty my two year old ripped top so I'm not complaining. I'll take what I can get.
Now the service writer said that there was a module behind the radio that feeds the cluster and the compass and maybe it was unplugged. I did have the radio out a while back so this is possible.
Is anyone aware of a module behind the radio? I'm going to take the dash apart this weekend but wanted to get a heads up before I go diving in.
