by Ford in your Owner's Guide;
Factors affecting compass accuracy
The compass reading can be affected when you
drive near a number of things — such as large
buildings, bridges, power lines, and powerful
Your compass can also be affected by magnetic
or metallic objects placed in or on the vehicle. If
the compass is giving inaccurate readings,
perform the following compass adjustments.
There are two possible adjustments to the
compass: Zone and Calibration.
1. Determine which zone of the country you
are in by referring to the following zone
2. Press and hold the “MODE” button until the
“VAR” indicator appears in the display
(approximately 4 seconds).
3. Release the “MODE” button. The display
will now show the current zone number that
is stored in the compass.
4. Press the “MODE” button repeatedly (or
press and hold in) until the desired zone
number appears in the display (once it
reaches 15, the next press of the button will
set it to 1).
5. Release the “MODE” button when the
desired zone number is displayed.
After approximately three seconds the display
will flash all segments and then return to normal
operation. Zone is now updated.
1. Find an open area that is free from steel
structures and high voltage lines. An open
parking lot is a good example.
2. Press and hold the “MODE” button until the
“CAL” indicator appears in the display
(approximately 8 seconds).
NOTE: You cannot perform calibration unless
the display reads “CAL.”
3. Release the “MODE” button.
4. Once the “CAL” indicator has appeared,
drive the vehicle slowly (less than 3 mph /
5 km/h) in 360° circles until the “CAL”
indicator turns off. This will happen within 2
to 3 complete circles."

#103 of 350 85 Bronco Noises
Jan 12, 2008 (2:16 am)
I have an 85 bronco XLT, inline 6, 4 speed, and it seems like once I drive it and get it warm, 5- 10 minutes, it starts making this sqealing sound almost like a belt is loose. It goes aways once I come off the clutch and am on the gas from about 1200 rpm 2200 rpm, anyone have any ideas to what it is?

Hard to guess at from here, some some suggestions;
ez stuff first
Could be just the belt(s);
can you get a helper to listen for location of the sound using a piece of graden hose or cardboard tube (gift wrap, etc.)? Be careful of fan! and hot radiator, etc.
Belt worn or stretched to maximum take-up length of system.
Tension force not sufficient.
next is the pulley
pulley has been marred in belt tracking area.
Pulley or tensioner are worn.
Pulley does not rotate smoothly or has a
sticky feel to it when spun
#105 of 350 need help on wiring code
Jan 15, 2008 (8:02 am)
my son bought as is not running for $400.00 1990 Bronco11 xlt, 2.9litre. he had to buy a new battery, fuel filter and a new fuel pump. with sending unit for fuel gage. $139. + the plug for the fuel pump relay was bad. this is the help we need to find out where the color coded wires go to a differant pig tail. which of course are a differant color. i did'nt write down the poistion of the wires. (not wise) anyway the wires on the Bronco is blk-yel / org-blu / brn-grn /red - org-lite blu. the other plugs colors are three in a row are blk-red-brn. on the other side across from the black wire is a yellow wire. we need this information to get this vehicle running we hope. his work site is 16 miles twice a day it's killing me on the gas i have to use. i'm on a fixed income. so if some one could take the time to do some research or knows some one that has this model find out the code's? on this Bronco the fuel relay is on the passinger side. Please help us (JERRY)

Hi Jerry, I found some wiring diagrams at the Automotive Repair Reference Center database online via my public library (you may be able to access something similar - check the Online Repair Manuals guide for links).
Meanwhile, I don't see a '90 2.9l, just a 2.3L, a 3.0L and a 4.0L engine. I'll email you a pdf file of the 3.0 L one that has a wiring diagram. Hopefully you can make heads or tails of it!

I have a 96 Bronco with the 5.8. At times the engine turns over very slow. Timing is good, starter is new, battery is new & and alternator good any ideas ?

check positive and negative cables & connectors at the battery -look at wire strands u\for corrosion here and all cited below; cable/connector may look good, but a lot of times, corrosion is within strands creeping up into connectors
NEG (ground cables) to the engine (pass side below intake manifold (ck ground "bar" (metal ) there for rust, corrosion and tightness) and then down to engine block/frame' also from "bar" to firewall wire
Pos (+) to the starter relay, to starter (sometimes they loosen/corrode). Check all the connectors too. Ck alternator wires to batty
