MPH to KM/H
Hello, just brought a 2006 SL500 in from the US and wanted to change Speedo. I have read on a few forums that this can be done without changing the cluster. Does anyone know how to perform this? without going to MB Canada.
" imported a Sl55 into Canada and had to change the instrument cluster for Kilometers. There is a light in the cluster that is not lit and is for KPH. However Mercedes insisted that the entire instrument cluster had to changed to get Kilometers. The cluster in Canada is 1968.00 plus installation.
Therefor according to Mercedes Benz of Canada you cannot just complete a programing change to have you speedo register in Kilometers."
"I have a 2003 in US.
Wanted to be able to switch to kph for visit to Canada.
Dealer was able to use their software tool to designate kph for one of my keys if I activated "Key dependent" in the "Convenience submenu" on the Multifunction display. On my recent trip I took along the proper key and started the trip with "Key dependent" off - mph. After crossing the border I pulled over and set "Key dependent" to on - kph. Speedometer, odometer, fuel milage, navigation system, etc - all switched over to metric measurements. Returning to US set "Key dependent" to off and was back to mph.
