I truly doubt you will be able to change the language in the onboard computer system. However, you might be able to exchange your computer system for another that's been reprogrammed in English. Just a thought. Although I don't know where you'd find one.

Its really simple, if you have PCM then go to your main screen, push SET, then choose English as the language. If you dont have PCM, then it also can be done via the left computer stalk, you'd need the exact sequence since you probably wont be able to read jap but I'm not near the car now so cant really give you that!!
