Default How to change temperature display???

Hi All

I had a new battery installed in my 2000 Beetle. Now the outside temp display reads celsius. How do I change it back to fahrenheit??

Thanks in advance!

OH -- any advice on finding a service manual for less than $50??

For temperature from celsius to fahrenheit (or back):
Put the key in ignition and turn the car on (but don't start the car). Hold both the Hour and Minute buttons for at least 3 seconds.

For clock from military to regular (or back):
Put the key in ignition. (Do not turn on or start the car.) Hold both the Hour and Minute buttons for at least 3 seconds.

Good luck!!

I suggest that you re-remove the sunglass holder, and see what you screwed up in the cubby.

Don't bother changing it. The metric system is the future.
