When I first turn on th car I sometimes get an instant reading of celsius then immediately swapps to Fahrenheit. I though I was crazy until a friend wittnessed it in front of his eyes too. It is very quick... less than a second. The dealer says impossible, that it is a separate board, but the dealer here in my estimation, usually wouldn't notice if I brought them a Buick ! (They still have no idea why my steering column won't telescope automatically every time) (Don't get me started on that!) :-)
Any clues?... is this an indicator of a bigger problem? Is is a non-issue and I am being my usual type A self? Thanks!
Maybe you are to close to Canada and confusing your thermometer .
The steering column may have a bad positioner sensor .
