2008 Escape XLT Eng/Metric

Post by TimK » Tue Aug 27, 2019 3:08 pm

I'm looking for a way to change a 2008 Escape XLT odometer and exterior temperature display from miles and Fahrenheit to metric. If I don't see the option given with Forscan configuration and programming so is it still possible to edit as built data to make the switch? I'm looking at data from similar vehicles that should have metric display and thought about some trial and error.

You can change the following w/o forscan using just the setup menu button on the cluster.

- Main ODO
- Trip A/B ODO
- Outside Air Temp
- Fuel Economy display
