Default info center issue

good morning,
i have a 99 expedition Eddie Bauer with info center in overhead console. the center has estimated mileage before next fill up and direction vehicle is traveling (ie:north ,south, east ,etc). the direction traveling indicator is showing the wrong direction,is there a way to reset it or do i need to replace a module? i have not disconnected the battery yet.
any help is greatly appreciated.

Try a compass calibration..

Calibration Adjustment..

For optimum calibration, turn off all non-essential electrical accessories (rear window defrost, heater/air conditioning, map lamps, wipers, etc.) and make sure all doors are shut.
Drive to an open, level area away from large metallic objects or structures and high voltage lines.

Insert an appropriate-diameter rod, preferably non-metallic, into the switch access hole underneath the compass module. Press gently for two to four seconds until 'CAL' and a direction are displayed.

Release the switch and drive slowly in a circle until 'CAL' disappears from the display (about two to three circles).
The compass is now calibrated.
