Default Automatic Air Conditioner Control Unit

My automatic air conditioner control unit quit working earlier this week. I saw the procedure on replacing the capacitor on the circuit board to fix the problem. However, one of the wire leads from the old capacitor would not come off and when I tried to solder the new capacitor to the old wire, it did not work. So... I bought a new air conditioner control unit and installed it in the dash. Everything works great except the temperatures you set for the driver and passenger are in degrees Celsius. How do I change them to degrees Fahrenheit? Thanks for your help.

You should be able to switch it through the OBC.

Default Change DegC to DegF on Air Conditioning Control

Using the OBC change unit key changed the units of the outside temperature, but did not change the DegC display of the Air Conditioner Control Panel Temperature Setpoints.

You have to use a DIS machine to change it to F. I had to do it on my car when I bought her.
