its schizophrenic and possessed

I checked on my 04 with OBC to see if I could get those settings, but both change together
probably some settings are wrong in the DME. Probably need a PWIS or maybe a Durametric Pro to fix

also the dial shows 12 MPH and the display 0 MPH and tach 850 with the car off. definitely possessed

Hey no taking photos when driving. I wouldn't trust any of your dials until this is fixed.

There is an option to switch miles to km/h by turning the 0,0 reset button for 5 secs to the left...but that should actually switch all displays.
