What model? I'm guessing you don't have the 3 buttons on the dash on the right hand side about knee height...

ahhh i had to go to my truck and try it out and look at my manual to find out for sure...if you dont have the 3 buttons like mentioned above..you hold the trip button for atleast 8 seconds and then choose what zone you are located in...it doesnt seem to change F to C though...

it also says under the outside air temperature heading pg 82..."To turn the display off or change the display from English to Metric see your authorized dealer"...that sucks if theres no way other than going to the dealer...well good luck and sorry for the multiple posts!
