Question about 2005 Cadillac CTS

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.

if your cluster is mechanical, then it is not possible to change the settings. you can attempt to get a genuine cluster from Mercedes Benz by using your VIN and request for a cluster that displays KPH.
However, if your cluster is Digital, or uses an LCD display, then you will need a STAR DIagnosis tool, hook it up to the car, and perform something known as SCN Coding to the cluster. There you will have the option to change it from MPH to KPH

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.

Speedometer Problem


Did you try the instrument self test? With ignition switch in off, press the odometer reset button and while pressing it, switch ignition in run. Now all indicator lamps will come on and you can release the button. All indicators will run to full scale and should return to normal position.
The instrument cluster gets the speed information from the PCM (powertrain control module). The PCM gets the info from the ABS controller. I would pull the fuse from the ABS controller and see if it will change the speed indication. If it does, then the problem is with the ABS controller, if it doesn t, then most probably the instrument cluster is faulty.

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..
