    How can I change km to miles

    I just had a new battery installed in my '06 SRX and now it is showing KM's instead of miles. Can I change it back, and, if so, how?

    It is somewhere in the DIC controls on the left lower side of the dash you can toggle between KMH and MPH. Mine is currently 1750 miles away in my warm garage in AZ so I can't go look at it and desribe the specific process. Owners manual will also tell you how.
    Have fun,

    The owner's manul doesn't say anything about it, but I will look, as you said, on the lower left side of the dash. Thank you.

    It's in the DIC main menu-

    (English/Metric Units): Use this menu item to adjust the measurement units. You can choose between ENGLISH UNITS and METRIC UNITS. To switch between the two, press the TUNE/SEL knob. Once your choice is displayed, turn the knob to set your choice and continue scrolling through the main menu. The measurement units that you choose will be reflected on all the vehicle system displays, not just the DIC information. For example, the climate control panel will display degrees Celsius if you choose METRIC UNITS.

    Are you still having concerns, rlutjen? Glake is correct -- You can switch to and from metric units through the Driver Information Center. If you have the Base audio system, see DIC Main Menu on page 3-53 of your owners manual for more details. If you have the Navigation system, see “Setup Menu” in the Navigation System Manual.

    Re: How can I change km to miles

    I have the exact same question.. How do you switch back to English units once you are careless enough to somehow inadvertently switch the system to Metric Units? How can you switch units without knowing you have done so? You would think that right there tells you the system is pretty confusing. But the owner above was referred to this confusing blurb in our worthless owners manuals. We press the button and it gets to Setup, nothing about Units no matter how long or often you press the TUNE/SEL button:

    Frustrating!! Further on in the same section it tells you to "scroll" but doesn't say which button you use to do that or how. Why didn't Cadillac hire someone who knew how to write manuals to write something helpful? Can someone please give a brief step by step run down on how you actually switch between units, if you have the non NAV system? Thanks.

    You can scroll simply by pressing the up and down arrows. Once you have the correct selection, press the checkmark button.

    Re: How can I change km to miles

    Fine but how do you get to the UNITS section? Setup just brings up "Language" "Personalization" "Configure Display Keys".
    "To switch between the two, press the TUNE/SEL knob. Once your choice is displayed," What choice is the owners manual referring to? From the manual you would think that pressing the TUNE/SEL knob would eventually get you to something that said "UNITS" or "CHANGE UNITS". It never does. All the manual says is "Once your choice is displayed", never mentions what that choice may be? I was using the "scroll" example as another area of insufficient help. What text are you pressing the TUNE/SEL knob for?

    Press that button, then a blue button on the screen that says "English".

    Re: How can I change km to miles

    From page 3-53 of the owners manual:

    To access the main menu of the DIC, do the following:

    1. Press the TUNE/SEL knob once.

    2. Turn the TUNE/SEL knob clockwise or counterclockwise to scroll through the menu items.

    The instructions not found in the manual is:

    Stop when you come to the english/metric units(it may be a symbol that looks like a ruler) located between SEEK LOCAL/DISTANT and TCS.

    Do not go past and end up in SETUP.

    Then once you have found english/metric units then according to page 3-56 you can choose between ENGLISH UNITS and METRIC UNITS. To switch between the two, press the TUNE/SEL knob.

    Re: How can I change km to miles

    Thanks for the responses I will try those suggestions.. especially glake's. I have been trying this with the engine running.. instead of key just on that may make a difference? I still say that the manual is bad at explaining a basic procedure like this. Seems to have left out some steps.

    Thanks Everyone. That worked. I really appreciate the help.

    Does this set your speedometer needle to read in MPH? I'm bringing a SRX into the States to leave at my Arizona winter home and want everything to read Imperial from metric
