Default Reset Digital Display to Miles and Fahrenheit

Hey guys,
I need some help. I now have a 2001 Oldsmobile Aurora and everything is going fine with the car except that one day the computer started to display kilometers, and celsius. I would run it by the dealer, but I'm stationed over in England right now. Can anyone help me out? Thanks.

Mmmm this should be in the owners manual, wish I knew the button to press. However until a coupld of GXP folks get here...give the book a try and let us know if you have any luck with that.

Thanks. I've looked at the book inside and out, but I've found nothing yet. I'll keep checking the posts for advice. Thanks for replying.

if it is at all like the GXP it should be in personalization programming or look for a button that says en/mt.

Default I Found It!

Well, I read the manual over and over and I found it! I guess I was looking for the wrong wording. It was listed in the first part of the DIC programming. It states pressing and holding the on/off button for a few seconds to reset from English to Metric mode. I'm a bonehead for missing that I guess. Thanks for your replies though in trying to help me out.
