Default Chevy Venture 2001 digital compas display

Hi All,

I have a 2001 Chevy Venture van with a digital read out overhead. Its a compass, and miles remaining blue display. It seems to only work when the outside temperature is about 10 or colder.

Im sure is a loose connection in the power line to the unit, but I have no clue where that might be. I tried taking it apart to look and see if there is anything I can do with it. I saw noting in there obvious like a plug or harness.

Any advise?

Define "it seems to only work"? Are you saying the whole display turns off, or is the display only showing temp above 10 outside?

Oh, yeah, I should have known better!

Yes, the whole display turns off, buttons make no difference. Bumps, and even pounding on it dose not seem to help.

When it does come on, it works perfect. Seems to stay on and working till the end of that trip, then its dead again for most of the year. It seems to work about 3 times per year.

I wonder if the connection at the display and controller is getting loose or corroded. You would have to pull the whole overhead console down to get to the DIC to check.
