    Hi All
    Having received excellent advice on doing a 'binnicle test' to get the instruments registering again, the temperature readings are now in Fahrenheit. Any guidance out there as to how to get back to celsius?
    Thanks

    To change the temp scale without resetting the trip odometer follow the instruction below:

    1.Press & hold the left button on the instrument cluster
    2.Insert the key & turn the ignition to POSITION 1 (not position 2)
    3.Turn ignition off THEN release the button

    The next time you turn the ignition on...the scale will be changed over. (hopefully)

    Hi Kevin
    Many, many thanks. Fahrenheit had become quite annoying. Now back to celsius.
    There was only your response to my query but numbers don't matter when the one response is the right one. Thanks again.
    Tim
