Default COMPASS CALIBRATION

I bought my 06 without an owners manual and I need to calibrate the compass to I don't have to see the blinking "cal" light anymore. I thought I could figure it out, but I can't. Can anybody help?

Look in the TECH section for information on how to get the owners manual.

You have an EVIC I assume? Push the left reset button in the cluster while in park and you can access all your vehicle settings, including compass calibration.

Cool thanks. I have played around with the personal settings menu and set everythign to me specifications but I still can't figure out how to get rid of the blinking "CAL" light. The compass reads correctly so thats good, I guess its just stuck in the calibration mode.
