Hey man, did you try going to speedometer on the center cluster screen and holding the button combo that is "OK"?

That only works temporarily. As soon as I turn the car off it goes back. Plus, it's not just the digital speedo that's off. Temperature is off too.

With AlfaOBD you have to make most if not all numerical changes in metric such as TPMS, Odometer miles, and the like and then change them to imperial in the Uconnect menu(s).

Fort those looking to purchase AlfaOBD I recommend the android version as the license will work on any device you have a google account on. The PC version is licensed to the PC its installed on. UN-installing and re-installing on another PC is not an option.

You can learn lots in this huge thread. Especially on the 1st page.

With AlfaOBD I activated SRT Pages & Sport Mode, Fogs on with high beams, moved DRL's to turn signals, installed a reverse cam & activated it, installed an auto dimming tilt in reverse door mirror & activated it, added paddle shifters & activated them.

I use the OBDLink MX+ dongle.

Has anyone found a good way to mount the 8.4 display for this mod? Other than gorilla tape if so please post pics to the thread please. If it has already been mentioned in the thread and I missed it please let me know which page it is on.
Thank you.
I used two "long nuts" (M5, 20mm; SN-TEC Distanzmutter/Langmutter/Distanzbolzen 6-kant M5 x 20mm verzinkt (10 Stück): Amazon.de: Baumarkt) on the bottem attached with 2k glue (UHU 2-Komponentenkleber Plus Endfest, Glasklarer und höchst belastbarer 2K-Klebstoff in einer praktischen Doppelkammerspritze für einen Auftrag im korrekten Mischverhältnis, 25 g: Amazon.de: Bürobedarf & Schreibwaren).
And modified the upper mounting points and used the original screws.

Du you know a way to change to metric? I could not find a way. I changed my odometer yea but I to do it in mls although I have an canadian car in germany.
For driving I can change the speedometer temporarily to km/h but everything else is in mls and °F ... exspecially the temperture in °F is difficult for us!

Well, I've officially given up on this as I cannot seem to fix the issue with my cluster being stuck in us and not metric. It was cool but many issues just couldn't be resolved even with all the tools available.

Anyone want a Canadian cluster 2015 and up?

Like to share my 2011 so-far-success story. Honestly hardest part as getting screen mounted decently on new bezel. Only issue I ran into AlfaOBD did not want to correct engine hours. Will try after nights rest though.

Engine hours (a feature for the police pkg) or mileage? --If it is the mileage try this trick. When you set the mileage, enter the correct number, then repeatedly set the mileage in rapid succession at least 3 times, not even giving the continental logo time to go away. after the third time let the cluster finish booting. If that does not work, change the mileage slightly to a rounded number, then repeat this process.

Mileage was easy to change. Twas the engine hours that never did anything.

Usually you can only see "hours" if you have the car in police package mod with the normal clusters. They do that because the cars idle a lot. Placing the BCM in police package mode can potentially mess up some other things.

No progress on fixing the ACC/FCW Service required message? Just did my cluster swap and it beeps at me every few minutes, if there's no way to silence the beeps or get rid of the message entirely then ill have to swap back until hopefully, they figure out full ACC compatibility.

Bezel is the dash insert piece that surrounds the cluster and radio and houses the three vents. The 2015 Screens mount to the dash, where as 11-14 mount to the bezel so some work is required on your part to make it work. I uses zip ties, paper, and 4 pennies.

You will also need a Tazer so steering wheel buttons will function.

8.4 Uconnect if you do not have it already.
