Default speed indicator on cruise flaw

Well...I've noticed this for some time now with the truck and I think that somebody mentioned it once before on the forum but there was never a follow up as to a fix (that I know of)...

Basically long story short, when setting the cruise control on my truck the EVIC is supposed to tell you the speed that the cruise control is locked on. Mine tells me it in MPH, which would be fine except that I'm Canadian and everything on the truck is in metric (for the EVIC). I can set it to KPH via the EVIC, and it will display in KPH, until the truck is shut off...then it defaults back to MPH. I brought the truck into the dealership to have the oil changed the other day and asked them to fix it at the same time. When I went to pick the truck back up later, I was told "the truck is ready for pickup, but we're not done with it". Turns out that the tech tried to fix it, he landed up talking with Chrysler Canada and was told that they're aware of the issue and are working for a fix.

Morale of the story....if you have a similar problem don't bother taking it to the dealership just yet...

I have the same issue, if you put the EVIC on speedometer, once the cruise is on, it will automatically change the readout to KM/H and it will stay that way until you turn your truck off. No a solution, but if you're going to be in the truck for more than a quick jaunt its a work around.

You would think trucks made for Canada would default to KPH.
