Asked by Feb 20, 2016 at 08:39 PM about the 2012 Kia Optima EX Turbo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2012 KIA Optima. LOVE THIS CAR!  Although somehow the
thermometer indicator in the dash has changed from "F" to "C".  How do I get
it back to "F"?

mess around with the settings on the dash until you get it right, trial and error.

It is the computer illuminated one, it is digital and have not found any way to 'change' it even through trial and error. It has been like this for 3 weeks.

uncertain of your configuration..but MODE....and Select usually does the job~

I will try. I was able to get the MPG back in line too... Just drives me a little sideways with the "C" and not the "F"... haha (It still drives like a dream. The "F" isn't mandatory to enjoy the car ;) ) THANK YOU
