    there should be a button on your dash. my 93 Fleetwood rwd has a button on it that can go from metric to english. but we have to different cars so it might be different. its a digital dash right? look around the display it is in there somewhere.

    If you don't have the button there's a wire somewhere that changes it. Do a search in this section and you'll find a post that says exactly how to do it.

    If you have the elctronic gauges, the E/M button is right on the instrument cluster. It's black with white print on it.
