    Default Compass Calibration Procedures ?

    The mirror compass on my new Z06 (2009 1LZ) is not calibrated and reads SW when I am heading N. It also shows CAL next to the direction.

    Does anyone have the procedure for calibrating the compass?

    I think the dealer overlooked this part when placed in service and I just don't want to take it back for such a small thing.

    Thanks in advance!

    Not sure what the steps are, but your owners manual would be a great place to start. I don't have my manual available right now, but I know there are instructions in the manuals because I have had to recalibrate mine and found the instructions in my manual. You should have received a manual when you purchased the Corvette.

    I'm afraid we don't yet have an owner's manual link for model year 2009 up yet, but I don't think the recalibration procedure has changed much during the entirety of the C6 production run. Here's a LINK to the 2008 owners manual (you'll need to be able to support a document in PDF format). The information on compass recalibration are on pages 2-39 and 2-40. Try those and see if that solves your problem.
