    My sister picked up her new 2005 Sonata tonight. Both the Climate control
    and the ambient temperature readouts are in Centigrade. Anyone know how to
    change this to Fahrenheit?

    Amazingly, the owners manual was not with the car. They promised it to her
    by Friday, but I figured someone here might know to change this.

    double the Celcius temp and add 30. not exact, but close enough..

  4. What he's asking for is directions for changing the display in the car,
    not a conversion formula.

    Press and hold the "Temp Down" button and the "Ambient" button for
    about 5 seconds.

    sounds like a good opportunity to learn some of the metric system to me
    .... leave it celcius and learn what temps are comfortable and help the
    USA get out of the stone age (only country that still use the english
    system in the world besides like lithuinia)

    err... the UK still uses it. Ireland still uses it to an extent. I’m
    sure there are others. Lithuania certainly does not. Nor does
    lithuinia :p

    But yeah, I agree. Stick with celsius, zeppo, and learn it. It’s so
    much more useful than farenheit.
