2012 Ford Escape with Sync; original audio system. The compass display now reads "--" all the time. In Setup, the compass zone is "--" and cannot be changed. Compass calibration thinks it has finished immediately and has no effect. What should I check? Does the compass have its own fuse? What else? Where is the sensor located?

I'm not sure it's a blown fuse because the compass went out for a day or so last week, then resumed working, and now has gone out again. Loose connection to the sensor?

Thanks!

Can anybody tell me where the compass sensor is so I know where to look for loose connections?

I have satellite radio. Nonetheless, I jiggled the wires to the rear-view mirror and it has resumed working. I can't prove that this is what fixed it -- more jiggling of the same wires does not have any effect on it.

according to my 2009 manual (which is similar to 2012) the compass is integrated into the rear view mirror. There is one electrical connector that feeds the mirror
