Hello fellow explorer enthusiasts.

I have an issue where the car I bought was imported from Canada and I didn't find out until I got home. I am trying to switch from the US to Canada because KPH can't be disabled. I've gotten the FORscan program and have been trying to change things like units, and region, etc. None of it seems to be taking effect and it actually reverted everything back to Metric for Odometer, trip, etc. Any change under IPC does not seem to make any difference though under the APIM I changed the splash screen and it did take effect. Any help getting back to imperial and disabling KPH once and for all is appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum/
Have you tried checking the Owner's Manual? You can change Celsius to Fahrenheit. It seems like the Manual indicates you can change more than that.

language, measurement units, or to reset

Using the menu button on the right side of the steering wheel press the menu button. Look for the information setting and look for kilometer. Then either check or uncheck to get the display you want. I don't remember all the exact steps but it is there. Good luck.

Thanks, Peter. I did look in the manual, but it didn't look for units. Searched for Metric & kilometers. So now that fixed half the issue. Now I need to figure out how to disable KPH. Currently, I can only disable MPH. So I need to flip it to the US version where the option is to disble KPH.

It seems like once I changed anything on the IPC, it reset back to defaults, and nothing I change takes effect. I disconnect and reconnect FORscan and let it load without loading from a profile and my changes are there, but not showing on the screen.

Thanks, Dale. So there lays the main issue. That section shows to diable MPH only. on US cars the option shows KPH. I was hoping changing some of the country codes would change that.
