I have been finishing off a rebuild of a 90 td5 with a 300tdi Engine. I have put in a new clock, which now shows the correct mileage, but, the distance is now showing in Kilometers.

I have tried holding down the reset button whilst turning on the ignition, but to no joy.

Can someone tell me how to change the clock to show Miles NOT Kilometers?

I appreciate that we don't want to go down the 'how to change the odometer' route here, so if you need to PM me I would be greatfull

Many thanks

pressing & holding the button on the speedo face only changes it from total to trip & back & to reset the trip reading to zero.

I believe the speedo has to be changed, parts info shows different part numbers for MPH & KPH speedo's

Thanks for the reply, I'm going to have to send it back to the guy who upped the mileage for me, he will have to reprogramme it there.

Ta!

does your speedo read MPH around the outer scale & KPH in green around the inner scale, like this UK Td5 speedo below.

AFAIK the KPH version has the scales reversed KPH outer & MPH inner.

the only other info in the rectangular lcd panel is total or trip, on mine the word miles doesn't appear anywhere in that display.

Yes, the LCD Trip/ total display. The old Clock displayed circa 140,000, after having it re-adjusted, it says 225,000, the guy who did the adjustment said he may have forgot to put it back to miles, If I did the maths 225,000 KM is the same as 140,000 (ish) miles.

So I am guessing he didn't put it back to miles.

It was only because I have fitted everything back in place, I was trying to avoid taking the clock back out and waiting 4 days for the guy to fix it.

As I said, I think it's respectful not publishing details of how to 'clock' the display, (of which I am aware of the process)so I though someone may have pointed me in the direction of elecronicaly changing the scale.

Big thanks for the reply Western.

Regards :D
