I finally remembered to ask this question!!!!!

My batt went dead a month ago and after I recharged it I noticed that my damn Temp gauge reads in Celsius now.

How do I change it back to Farenheit?

:lol:

Disco, thanks for the link, but I still don't get it.

I went out and held down every sequence of buttons for more then 4 secs and still cant get the Cel to change to Farenheit.

Ive done it before, lol, just cant remember how.

To change it back to Farenheit. Multipy by 2 then subtract 10% of the result from itself. Add 32 and you have it. :)

For instance, if it said it was 10 then multipy by 2 gives you 20. Ten percent of that 20 is 2. Subtract that 2 from the 20 and you have 18. Add 32 and you have 50 which is what it would be in farenheit. :clap:

Or to make it more complicated, multipy your C by 9/5 and add 32. :dunno:

Do you want to convert Km's to Miles now?

Nope. But since I live in the USA I prefer to have my dumb thermy set back to Farenheits again.

I need to call the dealership.
It's been hot these days and I dont know how hot.

here ya go sharky - this is straight from the user guide (Page 63).

temperature conversion (F-C)

The temperature displays can be converted to or from Fahrenheight and Centigrade, as follows:

1. Press and hold the air recirculation button.

2. At the same time, press and hold the on/off button for 3 seconds.

3. A 'beep' will sound to indicate that the conversion has taken place.

If you don't have a Owner's Manual I would look for one on Ebay or your local Rover salvage yard, it comes in pretty handy. Also get your hands on a RAVE CD! It is the Rover bible... Contact member Jammer, he was offering them before. :drink1:

Thanks IB, I appreciate it.

BTW, what kind of paint did you use to repaint your grill? Looks tight.

Don't feel bad, I had a guy who worked for me. His mother bought him a new car every 2 years. He took it to the dealer for everything, including twice yearly to have the clock reset.

I heard it is by the front bumper. So if you are in traffic it reads hotte rbecause of the exhaust on the car rt in front of you.


IB, that doesnt look atin, looks so shiny black. I am going to copy you.

Was teh grill hard to remove?

Let me double check the can?? I know it was the Rust-Oleum brand.

It is very easy to remove - there's a few plastic screws along the top by the radiator and then 2 screws holding it to the headlight finishing trim along the lower sides.

It'll look nice painted - I like it all black.
