    How to change Celcius to Fahrenheit on 98 GTP

    I do not know how to change the Auto temp from C to F? Anyone know. I looked all over the owners manual and nothing is said anywhere. Did I miss it somewhere, can someone please help me?

    Multiply by 1.8 and then add 32.

    No idea. In my Park Ave I just push a button and Waa-Laa.

    On my Silverado it's in the DIC. I scroll through the menu until I get to "Units (Eng/Met)" Hit the arrow and the selection comes up. I hit the arrow again to get to the next unit. This is done through the steering wheel for me. I always run Farenheit. I'm from Canada, but from Windsor, so Celcius is meaningless to me until it gets down around 5C.

    If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find him, maybe you can hire Uzzy.

    Have you considered moving? To Europe?

    It's the fun and easy way to learn metric. Just embrace it.

    Mine changes everything. Miles on the odo gallons in the fuel readings, and temp reading on the climate control. Where are you trying to change it? On the rearview mirror? That must be different, because mine is always Farenheit no matter what I do in the DIC.
