Best Answer

To set the compass, find a LARGE empty parking lot.

Drive counterclockwise around 10-12 mph; about the second revolution you'll see the compass go into "--" display; by the fifth or so you'll see it pick up the proper headings and you're done.

On the other hand, if it's like mine, there's a sensor somewhere that went out. I can drive in circles all day and no matter what, I'm still driving SW regardless of direction!

This worked on my 2000 Chrysler Town & Country. THANKS!!

Have a 1997 Chrysler sebring the compass just says ccd what does this mean and how can it be fixed?

This means that the compass is in the calibration mode. If you have a Chrysler Sebring owners manual, it will help you finish the calibration for the area you live in. When you look it up, go to the "Index" section of the manual and you will find it. If I remembered or have my manual on me as I type this, I would just write what to do. Just read through it and you will find the section to get you back to "normal" operation. Take care and good luck :)
