I'm under the impression that is you press the F/C button, it will retain that setting until you press it again. It might default back to F if you disconnect the battery though.

Here'* a though... send a PM to sse1990. He lives in Canada and I'm sure he reads his display in Celcuis.

You can also find him at Ontario BC. The link to that forum in in the links section.

I've heard that US/Canadian cars will default to F/C on startup, not much you can do aside from swapping in a Canadian unit?

Have heard that there is a way to put the ECC into a diagnostic mode but was never able to get mine to do that. May be an input to tell it to use Celcius on startup (mine also reverts to F on each ignition cycle).

OFF and UP FAN with key on ? Tried that and nothing happened.
