Battery and Temperature Gauge

My battery died when I forgot to shut off my lights. I got a jump start. Since then, the temperature gauge only shows in Celsius. How do I reset it to Farenheit?

    This info is not in the manual. That was the first place I looked.

    The info is again NOT in the manual. The display under my stereo that tells me the outside temperature as well as what temperature my heat/ AC is, is what is stuck on Celsius. Again, Not in the manual...

Battery Light and Temperature Gauge


I would be looking at the drive belt missing or so bad that it has to be replaced . The battery light is from the alternator not charging --- the increase in temperature is from the water pump not working and the hard steering is from the power steering pump not working. All indications that the drive belt is missing or shot.

Car wont start without a jump all lights on dash are on it starts then dies right away on 97 olds achieva


Seems you may have more than one problem. A few questions you must answer first. If you have to jump it to start it,then your battery is dead are you have a draw draining the battery. Now if it dies right away look at your security light and see if it is on. Probably your security system is thinking someone stole the battery and shuts the fuel system down. Change the battery and Google the reset security system on 1997 Olds Achieva and you probably be set to go
