Hi and thank you for the question! My name is ***** ***** I'll do my best to help. Is the compass and temperature readings blank (black screen)? Or does it display a line that looks like "--"

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
It is blank
Expert:  TODD RUZICKA replied 5 days ago.

Ok, have you tried turning it on by pressing the power button? If so, can you see if the connector on the rear of the mirror (forward facing) side of the mirror is connected?

Customer: replied 5 days ago.
No we haven't tried that
Expert:  TODD RUZICKA replied 5 days ago.

Got it, try that and let me know the results. I'll look up the schematics in the mean time

Is there any way we can get back with you tomorrow we are currently traveling out of town?
Expert:  TODD RUZICKA replied 5 days ago.

Of course, I'll keep the case open.

The switch was off and it must have gotten hit when my husband was readjusting the rear view mirror. Thanks for your help.
