compass/temp mirror

was there a mirror with the compass and thermometer in f150s, expeditions, super dutys... you know, whatever.

i'd like to put one in my 2006 fx4, as i don't want to install an overhead consol.

I could have had one in mine. Factory accessory. It was like $700 so I decided not to get it.

.0 ROUTING THE TEMPERATURE HARNESS (inside the engine compartment)

9.1 Open the hood of the vehicle.
9.2 Locate the temperature sensor portion of your harness. It is the section with the green wires.
9.3 Locate a grommet in the firewall near the interior harness location and remove it.

NOTE: If a grommet is not available, drill a 9/16" hole in a safe and
convenient place to feed the 2-pin connector through. Take
care not to cause damage to objects in the passenger
compartment when drilling.

9.4 Locate the temperature probe harness and lay it out with the 2-pin connector
toward the firewall. Pass this connector through the hole or grommet access
to just inside the passenger compartment.

NOTE: It is important that the 2-pin connector be inside the vehicle to
prevent moisture from coming in contact with it.


9.5 Route the rest of the harness towards the front of the vehicle over the fender well to an area in front of the radiator.

NOTE: The preferred location for the temperature probe is in the center
of the grille or some place where it will be in free air in front,
or to the side, of the radiator. Down near the bumper may also
be used. Avoid locating it inside or in front of the wheel well,
engine compartment, or too close to the headlamps. Try to
keep the height no higher than the center of radiator, and
no lower than 8" above the pavement. Always try to keep the
temperature probe in the center of the vehicle; never locate
it outside of the frame rails.
