Default 2008 S_80 question

Hello Everyone! Just recently got my new S80 V8 2008!

Seems like a great forum.

Does anyone know how to access the information on the dashboard of the car to change the language on the digital display...I live in montreal quebec, so they programmed it in French..... Can't be bothered going into the dealership....

Any thoughts?

There should be info in the owners manual. You should be able to press the reset button a number of times to get to the option to change the language.

I believe only the Dealer can do it.

My VADIS (1999 S80 T6) says:

"The language in the combined instrument panel can be changed. This is done by ordering new software to download for the driver information module (DIM) from the replacement parts catalogue. In the replacement parts catalogue there is software for reloading the driver information module (reloading driver information module) and software for changing to 15 different languages. Reloading reloads the same software that was installed before the control module was replaced."

So, I think you should go to the dealer to change the language. Good luck.

Thanks!

I will bring it in once the spring comes, when the snow goes away.[&o]
