Auto Climate Control F to C display.

I have an 06 F-250 Lariat with the automatic climate control system.
When I bought the truck in Feb. 09, the temperature display read out in Celcius.
One day in the summer I started the truck and the display was blank!
I turned the truck off, restarted it and the display read out in Fahrenheit?!
I've looked in the manual and don't see anywhere were it tells you how to switch back to Celcius.
I'm guessing you have to depress several buttons in sequence to switch it back, or maybe the dealer has to do this via an ecu hookup.
Anyone know what's required?

Try this:

To switch your display between US and Metric you hold down the "auto" button and press the "defrost/floor" button.

Hey, thanks for the info. LOOSEWHEEL.

I tried doing this on the weekend several times, but the display is still reading in F!
Perhaps it's a 'stealership' fix.

Hi again LOOSEWHEEL,

Ah Ha, that little pic is helpful.

On the weekend, I pushed and held 'Auto', button #11, and then pushed the 'Defrost/floor', button #5. I tried a quick push of #5, and then tried holding both, but still no success.

However, I see just below the above schmatic it says to push the two buttons at the same time. So, I'll try that later today.

If that still does not work, then I'll try your second suggestion, from what I gather, I am to push buttons #2 and #3 at the same time and hold. Is that correct?

Again, thanks for your help on this.

You will need to hold both at the same time for 1 sec. Pushing one at a time will not access the secondary functions. Good luck.

Hey LOOSEWHEEL,

"You da Man"!!!!!

I went out this afternoon and pushed the 'Auto' button and the 'Defrost/floor' buttons, both at the same time, held them for about 1-2 seconds and................presto!!!

Now I've got my read back to Celcius!!

Thanks again for your help on this one. It's been driving me nuts having it reading out in Fahrenheit all this time.
