Hello, if there is a satellite fault, there could be a problem with the antenna for the satellite system. This also gives input for the compass.

There is a technical service bulletin for the SAT fault message which would require a dealer to reprogram the module for it as mentioned below:

TSB 11-3-3

03/07/11

AUDIO CONTROL MODULE (ACM) DISPLAYS
SATELLITE FAULT WITH DIAGNOSTIC TROUBLE
CODE (DTC) B1342 IN SATELLITE DIGITAL AUDIO
RECEIVER SYSTEM (SDARS) MODULE

FORD:
2008-2009 Fusion, Mustang, Taurus, Escape
2008-2010 Edge, Explorer Sport Trac,
Explorer, F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550
2008-2011 Expedition, Ranger
2010-2011 E-150, E-250, E-350, E-450

LINCOLN:
2008-2009 MKZ
2008-2010 MKX
2008-2011 Navigator

MERCURY:
2008-2009 Milan, Sable, Mariner
2008-2010 Mountaineer

ISSUE
Some 2008-2011 Expedition, Navigator, Ranger, 2010-2011 E-Series Econoline, 2008-2010 MKX Edge, Explorer, Explorer Sport Trac, Mountaineer, F-Super Duty, 2008-2009 Fusion, Milan, MKZ, Taurus, Escape, Mariner and Mustang vehicles (without navigation) may exhibit no satellite reception with SAT FAULT displayed in the ACM, and a DTC B1342 set in the SDARS module.

ACTION
Reprogram the SDARS module to the latest calibration using IDS release 71.04 and higher. This new calibration is not included in the VCM 2011.1 DVD. Calibration files may also be obtained at the website.

Which antenna is sat and gps? The rear antenna?

No thats the radio antenna. The satellite antenna is on the rear spoiler. I would have the reprogram done first by a dealer. They are the only ones that can do it, then they can check for codes and see if it needs an antenna as well.

Do you need more help with this concern? Anytime there is a reflash available, thats the first thing you go after.

Does the rear antenna also control gps and relate to the compass data error?
That's part of the system yes.

Hello, ive answered your questions. Do you need more help?

Hello, I have told you to go with the reflash first as outlined with the TSB. What else do you need to know.

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
