You can switch the temperature mode between Fahrenheit to Celsius as follows:
While depressing the AUTO button, depress the OFF button for 3 seconds or more. The display will change from Fahrenheit to Celsius, or from Celsius to Fahrenheit."

Changing the external temperature gauge from Fahrenheit to Celsius

If your temperature reads in climate control reads in degrees Celsius "C" instead of Fahrenheit "F", follow these steps to change to Fahrenheit.

  • Turn the ignition on.
  • With the climate control turned on, push and hold the recirculation button in. While holding the button in, push and hold the off button in for 3 seconds or until you hear a beep.

The display should then change to "F". Follow these same steps to change your read-out to Celsius , if preferred.

How can i change the temperature display from celsius to fahrenheit in my 2009 dodge journey?

Click the top left button on the steering wheel (looks like a book page) toggle the display (display is right under the temp and gas gauge on the left of dash). Go to Units and change between U.S. And metric to toggle from farentheight to Celsius an visa versa. It also changes between miles and kilometers, gallons / kilograms, etc.

I hope that helps - it took me a minute to figure this out.

2003 kia sorento running cold but still has heat

Are you sure it's running cold? Maybe you just have a bad gauge lead or sender?

If you have a gauge you can check things out by grounding the lead going into the temp sensor on the motor. If you can't find it get a service/repair book from the parts store for reference.

If you ground the gauge and it goes full hot than the gauge is fine. Next you need to ohm the sensor and see if its reads a closed circuit on a warmed up motor. If not, your sensor needs replacement.

I hope this helps.
Good luck and be careful.

Change from celsius to fahrenheit

Don't listen to 'nitrousaura' (what a maroon, as Bugs would say).

Anyway, the way to change between Celsius and Fahrenheit is to hold down both the 'Temp down' and the 'Amb' buttons for 5 seconds. Be sure to do the 'Temp down,' not the 'Fan down' like I tried the first time and had to call Kia back. :) The two buttons are on opposite sides of the display.
