Angry

My wife was bored in traffic this weekend and started randomly pressing all the control buttons to the HVAC on my 99 328i. All of a sudden, the temp reading (interior) was in celcius. (reading 19.5° C rather than 66° F). I have no idea how she did it, but she did. Any idea on how to set this back?

BTW - I tried to do a search, but kept getting a query exception, so I appologize if this was answered somewhere else already).

Check out the E46 tricks and tips #10:

10. The two knobs on the center control panel are to reset the short trip mileage and the other one is for changing the time on the clock and changing the time from army time (24 hour time) to normal time. And you could also switch the temperature display both on the dash and on the climate control between Fahrenheit and Celsius.

...use button on blinker arm to get to temp display and then use the knob on right to change from C to F.

It was for the HVAC, not the dash control, but I figured it out by trying all the possible combos this morning:

To go from degrees C° to F° press the AUTO and the FRONT DEFROST buttons at the same time.
