Default Compass

My compass which is built into my 1999 ranger rearview mirror stays on

sometimes just wondering how I could fix that and will it drain my battery if it stays on all night.

I suppose you could simply check for drain with it on.

Disconnect it....done. How much could a compass possibly draw??????
Go to ACE hardware and buy a compass for $3 and you will always be able to find your way home!
