Default How to Change Temperature to Celsius?

I don't have a feeling of Fahrenheit temperature. Sometimes, my display shows Celcius, but after re-start, sometimes it displays Fahrenheit..

How do you set the temperature display? I looked the manual and did not find anything about the temperature.

My wife has the same problem with her FEH. The interior and exterior temperature displays switch to Farenheit but the info displays continue to show kilometers etc. Somehow, eventually it switches back to Celcius but we can`t figure out what`s triggering the changes.

Same problem here from time to time, instrument cluster stays on metric, but internal/external temp display goes to Fahrenheit.

If you press the instrument cluster setup a couple times to get to the metric/us setting, then reset to change to us then back to metric, it fixes the internal/external temp display.

Cheers,

Darren

Thanks. My wife says that didn`t work for her but she`ll try again. She just leaves it and it eventually fixes itself, but it is annoying.

Yes, I have the exact problem. I already set the Unit Display in Metric, but the display temperature sometimes changes into Fahrenheit. After 2 days, it would change back to Celsius, but from time to time it shift backforth.

I found it always happens when you shut off and restart the engine....

Yep, exactly the same problem here too with a 08 FEH ... after a turning on the engine the int/ext temps are in F. I can't for the life of me figure out what's doing it but it is very annoying.

Good Morning:

I have the same problem with my 08 Escape. The outside temperature changes from degrees C to F randomly. I just dropped spoke to the Ford Dealer here (Ottawa, Canada), and they say it is an internal computer glitch for which they have a firmware update to correct the problem.

1 C =1.8 F
These scales are coincident at -40. Thus: (F+40) * (5/9) = ( C+40)

Alternatively to get close and since 18F = 10C, every 10C can be approximated by 20F. 50F is 10C (exact), 70F (really 68) is 20C, 90F (really 86) is 30C and so on.

I have the same issues with my 08 FEH. Thanks for posting this.
Did the firmware upgrade fix the issue?

Yes, I believe the firmware update fixed the problem. My wife has not complained about hers switching since the update which was over a year ago.
