Press and hold the reset on the wheel in the temp setting (at least that's how it is on the 2011 SX)

page 4/105 in the 2013 Canadian owners manual

Temperature conversion
You can switch the temperature mode
between Fahrenheit to Centigrade as follows:
While pressing the MODE, press the
DUAL button for 3 seconds or more.
The display will change from Fahrenheit
to Centigrade, or from Centigrade to
Fahrenheit.
If the battery has been discharged or disconnected,
the temperature mode display
will reset to Fahrenheit.

That is only for the heating system temp not outside tem in dash
sorry, your right, but try this: (this is from my Soul manual) in the computer for outside temperature, press the TRIP button for more than 1 second (or in my case its in the DISTANCE TO EMPTY mode) it will toggle from F to C or C to F.

For my 2012 SX, you have to press the reset button 5 times, then the trip 5 times, all within 10 seconds. The first time I tried this it didn't work. Then I tried again while holding down mode (I think?) and it worked. Lots of button pressing to do a simple change, and during the button pressing the display toggled a few times to try to keep up with my button pressing, but it was fine and the outside temp changed from C to F, as displayed in the console behind the steering wheel (not the climate control that is changed using a different technique).

Thanks that does work I have confirmed that . Unfortunately Kia has told me that for those cars sold in Canada there is no reset protocol to change distance driven from Metric (KLM) to Imperial (MPH) If anyone does know of a way please post .I would really appreciate that
