Twist and hold the odometer/clock switch for 10 seconds (or so) and you will see the digital speedometer/odometer flip over to metric.

Key on, engine off. Turning the clock set button to the left for about 5 seconds should do it. Digital speedometer will switch back and forth from metric to Imperial measure.

My clock on my 00S is set at military time because the previous owner had the dealer set it like this since he was a retired Marine so is there a quick fix to turn it back to normal time?

Jay,
My WAG is that if a dealer set it as a 24 hour clock, a dealer would have to change it back.
Bring $$ or a spare kidney.
