Thumbs down outside temp reading

The outside temperature reading on my dash changed from fahrenheit to celcius. Is there a way for me to reset it back to F.? I have a 1997 528i.

What happens if you hold the temp selector button for like 5 - 10 seconds? I think that's how mine toggles between deg F and deg C

Post thanks for reply, but didn't work

I tried holding the button in for several seconds, but nothing happened. Also, I forgot to mention that the temperature numbers on the auto heat/ac numbers below the radio also are now reading in degree C instead of deg F.

Top left hand button on the computer console will toggle between Celcius and Farenheit.

Yes, but it does the conversion from Metric to your archaic system of Imperial.

Yeah the point of my post was, how do you not see the conversion button. Was it not labeled in his car? It's one of the first things you notice in the OBC.
