Speedometer reads in KPH, can this be changed?

Gentelmen

My girl just bought a used 05 CTS, she tells me that the speedometer dial is in KPH w/o MPH anywhere on the dial. I have a hunch there should be a way to reset this to MPH, am I right?

Go into setup menu in the DIC til you see unit measure! Then select unit measure and everything will be back to normal. One is for kph and celcius, Liter/100km, fuel liter used etc and the other one is for mph, farhenheits, mpg, fuel gallon used etc.

Speedometer reads 60 when doing 35


Pete, is there any chance your speedometer is in Kph and you think it is in Mph. 60 kph = approx. 37 mph.
If not, I would say you need to replace speedometer.

Need to replace speed dial to convert from mph to kph


I would have it done there. They can give the car a good German tuneup and get it Autobahn ready.

How do I change my Speedometer from MPH to KPH


If it's digital there's a button somewhere I'm sure. However if it's a printed read out, then the cluster has to be changed over...however it should also read both. This is a common issue for service men bringing vehicles back from Europe as did I in 1998. Hope this helps !

Speedometer isnt reading right....EX: if im going 40 the speedometer says im going 65


From the sounds of it the vehicle computer was switched from mph to kph. You should be able to change this back using the driver information center located above your stereo under your settings options. 40mph=64.4 kph. If you have your owners manual available may want to consult that how to completely change it back.

Speedometer Conversion


Multiply anything you see on the speedo by 6, and drop the 0

40km = 24mph
50km = 30mph
60km = 36 mph
70km = 42mph
80km = 48mph
yada...yada... 100km - 60
EX and cheap!

THE SPEEDOMETER OR THE ODOMETER? THE SPEEDO TELLS YOU HOW FAST YOU ARE GOING AND ODOMETER READS THE MILAGE OR KILOMETERS TRAVELED.
IF YOU MEAN THE ODOMETER THEN THE CAR IS PROBABLY FROM CANADA AND CAN NOT BE CHANGED. I'VE RUN INTO THIS BEING NEAR THE CANADIAN BORDER.
I AM NOT SHURE IF YOU CAN CHANGE OVER TO A NEW CLUSTER (INSTRUMENT PANEL) LEGALLY OR NOT. CALL YOUR LOCAL D.M.V. AND THEY CAN TELL YOU. THE MILAGE WOULD HAVE TO BE CONVERTED AND THEN THE MILAGE STORED IN THE ENGINE/TRANS. COMPUTER WOULD NOT MATCH THE ODOMETER READING. SORRY HOPE YOU CAN FIND A SOLUTION IF YOU NEED TO.
IF YOU MEAN THE SPEEDOMETER THE THERE IS A ENGLISH/METRIC BUTTON TO PUSH TO CHANGE THE DISPLAY. GOOD LUCK..
