Hey guys, I was cleaning my windshield and noticed a little black box behind the mirror. There is a button on the front left hand corner. I pushed the button but didnt notice a change while driving at night. What is this box for? Is the government spying on me :shock:?

It has to do something (Not saying youre wrong). But why would they put a button there that does nothing?

There is a sophisticated procedure in the manual for recalibrating the compass. Not just a button.

I haven't noticed the button on my mirror bracket - will have to check it out.

It's a beacon signal to allow the government to spy on you, like you alluded to. :lol:

The box is the Compass Module. The button is not used in the Fusion. The compass is used in other Ford models and the button is used for calibration in those models. Calibration is done through the message center in the Fusion. Ignore the box behind the mirror...lol

I had to get a new compass recently because Portland Glass broke the plastic clip on it when they replaced my windshield. They blamed it on cheap Ford - I blamed it on a stupid tech.

But the compass had to be calibrated. That was fun - drive around in a circle three times, then pick your magnetic zone, then drive around in a circle three more times. By the way - I think everyone should do this because it gave me different (more accurate) readings than my old compass which I think was programmed for a different zone.
