How To Change Climate Control Temperature Display from Celsius back to Fahrenheit??

Help!

My climate control temp display changed itself from F to C one day and I cannot change it back. The temp in the dashboard stays on F and will not change even while trying the steps below, but the climate control temp display doesn't change either.

Already tried all the following:
  1. hold the auto button and press the front defrost button at the same time
  2. push clock adjust knob in while dashboard displays temp
  3. hold down the trip reset button in ignition 2, turn off ignition, release button, turn back on
  4. with ignition in pos 2, press the button on turn signal stalk repeatedly til you get the temp displayed on cluster, then press the clock adjustmeny button to cycle temp between C and F
Anyone know how to fix this?? So annoying!

Tommy could my clock adjust button be broken? Like it twists to the left and right but maybe pushing it in part is broken??
I can even get into the test menu and access all 21 OBC functions.

I took it to a dealership today at lunch, a service adviser and shop foreman both tried doing what u told me, press right knob in, but apparently it's broken! u can adjust the clock by turning it but pushing it in doesn't do anything, it's not making contact.
Tommy is there a way to get this button? Do you ever get any broken gauge clusters that you throw out and replace? Can I buy the button from you?

just bought a 2001 325i (101000km's) mint as, drove it home and well chuffed. Wife nicked it already
Anyways the temp was in Fahrenheit, we use Celcius in NZ, found this page and went out to try it.
The trick is to get the temp displaying on the dashboard using the little button on the end of the indicator stick, then push the right side button on the dash... voila!

thanks guys you pointed me almost right to it
