Re: Speedometer reads in KPH, can this be changed?
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.

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
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.
most have a dial or button on the cluster , for mph and kph , if its a digital dash the owners manual should have it in appendix under speedometer , last resort call the dealer with youre vin number located on left hand corner of dashboard behind windshield
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.
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..
