As the title states guys... I just picked up a 04 GGP IS . I noticed two things..1) the outside temp reading is celsius rather then Farenheight.. I know i read the manual and canadian models have Celsius reading.. but when the dealer ran a carfax that the car was originally bought in Cali..i verified the VIN and everything... is there a way the dealer or maybe myself to change this?

2nd) I ve been readin some posts on here that our stock radios, 6 disc changer in particular that they tend to get CD stuck.which I encountered the after I bought it.. has anyone ever taken there stock stereo out and fixed it themselves... any advice on these 2 areas...thanks for the advice...

Welcome... I'm not sure about that. I'd think you'd have to get a new cluster if that's how you wanted it.

You can't change the temperature readings in IS300's. Your whole heater control panel is either in C or F. So you would need to buy an American heater control panel.

Hi there,

I bought an IS300 US-Model and imported it to Europe.
My topic is different, I'd like to have °C shown instead of °F.

Well some while ago I removed heater control unit and tried to find out
how to change temp display.
OK, nothing was the result....

As I installed back the temp unit and started up my car,
suddenly that mo***fu****er showed up °C for about 2 seconds,
and then changed back to °F.
But not just the °F symbol, also the number has chnaged,
f.e. it showed up 20°C and then changed to 58°F or anything.

So I think it must be some ECU issue or anything, the display can show
both options.



Same would be interesting for the milage.... I'd be interested more in KMs
than in miles. ;)


Any ideas??

happened to me once, too, for 2 seconds. so it should be able to be changed somehow through the ECU
