Gidday, just imported my Trafic into the UK, I’m having a problem changing the vehicle from km to mph.
I have followed the instructions in the handbook but unfortunately it hasn’t worked.
ignition off
press button 9 or 8 at end of stalk 7
and the start button 8
Any advice would be appreciated.

Cheers

Instructions will not work.
EU regs say that speedos in countries that use MPH must be able to show KPH and MPH.
But not the other way round.
So Renault only make it driver selectable on cars sold in MPH countries.

It is possible to enable with suitable diagnostic interface... There is a thread here somewhere that says how to with DT4all.

Alternative is to get an OBD external clock that can show MPH.
Ths sort of thing for instance...plenty of variants available so shop about

Thank you for all the information, it’s much appreciated.
if I use a OBD external clock would you still be able to register the vehicle?
I think DT4all looks like it may be the way forward.

Cheers

I believe it should though it may depend on the inspector.
The UK Construction and Use Regulations and MOT guidance only call for a speedo that reads in MPH. (and can show KPH)
This may be interpreted to be a permanent fixture so any clock would be best to be bolted in somehow.
If you can have a chat with the testing station, that may be a question to ask.

Obvious but brilliant advice. I wish these were around 25 yrs ago when I tried to import a car with only a km HUD display into UK.
