    What I'm asking is: How do I change/adjust the outside temperature
    display (found next to my mileage display)?
    A few years ago, when i bought my (Canadian; it appears this feature
    was unavailable on US models) CR-V, I checked Usenet to see what
    others thought of it.
    In these newsgroups, I also, discovered a way of adjusting this
    outside temperature indicator by turning the key to a certain "on"
    position and then pressing the mileage reset button.
    However, I have forgotten how to do this.

    Who cares why? He asked if anyone knew how to do it... Maybe it's just
    for shits and giggles?

    (I don't know how)

    I was thinking, ice cubes on the sensor to lower it, a hair dryer to
    raise it......

    He's talking about the outdoor temperature calibration for the dashboard

    The sensor is located around the front bumper.

    To adjust, you hold the odometer trip reset button for at least 10 seconds.
    The display will flash the increment to adjust for one second per increment.
    To set, you release the reset button.

    As some others may also say. RTFM. I found my instructions on pg 63 of my 05
    crv owners manual.

    Thank you very much for the info. but NOT the wise-ass comment about
    RTFM! I fail to see the humour in these answers to a very simple

    I HAVE read the f*cking manual, and it is, obviously, NOT in my 2002
    manual, or I wouldn't have posted the question, now would I?

    I wonder: Why do some people consider themselves to be the smartest
    person in any room they are in?

    And if you knew to whom you (and the other wiseacres in this thread,
    with comments such as "drive north", etc. ) are directing your pithy,
    juvenile, and smart-ass remarks, it would absolutely blow your mind!

    If you didn't see the page where it covers that question, you probably
    would have posted the question.
    Someone has to be the smartest person in the room. Why do you think they
    aren't the smartest in the room?
    Are you having a bad day?

    you don't think trying to adjust the temperature outside your car is
    funny? you must be missing a gene.

    sure you would - if your reading comprehension skills weren't much good.

    because some of them often are. but i doubt you've experienced such a

    somehow, based on your performance to date, i somehow doubt that. but
    i'm still interested to know who you think are you are - apart from what
    we already know - that you're some joker that doesn't understand usenet,
    who is driving a six-year old honda, who can't read an owner's manual,
    and who has the temerity to demand fawning servitude as a response to
    bad attitude.

    <-- meaningless drivel snipped -->

    I would've responded accordingly to your tirade, but I see that the group
    already did that. Thanks to all who did.
    Perhaps you should pursue some anger management counselling.
    We Canucks are supposed to be a more easy going bunch.

    Well, the RTFM comment is certainly warranted. You haven't been around
    these types of groups, obviously, or you would be amazed at the stupid
    questions asked that could be answered authoritatively by either
    reading the manual or - gasp! - picking up the phone and calling the
    local dealer's service department. If it's wrong, in your case, then
    so be it. You could certainly have added 'I don't see anything in my
    owner's manual' to your original post.

    As far as the 'wiseacre' comments, again, anyone on a group is open to
    such comments. That's what makes the Internet so much fun! Every
    Canadian I have met has had a wonderful sense of humo(u)r. Guess you
    are the exception that proves the rule.

    I suspect you don't have the guts to reveal who you are pretending to
    be, as noted in your last paragraph. That's another fun thing about
    the Internet, you can be whoever you want! So, please, blow our minds
    with your fantasy persona!

    I bet you get that a lot, in the rooms you're in, eh?

    JP Guest

    Ladies & Gentlemen,
    I (JP) sincerely apologize for my earlier comments.
    Not to make excuses, but I suppose either: a) I was caught off guard
    when reading the earlier responses to my query about the outside
    temperature gauge on my CR-V; or b) as one poster asked, "Are you
    having a bad day?" (Or, even possibly, the fact that I have often
    told that there are only two a**holes in this town and that I am both
    of them.)
    So, once again, I apologize and thank those who responded in kind to
    my question. I look forward to "chatting" with you in the future.

    Not really. You are much more important to you than you are to me.
    You could be the President, and I would still laugh at your inability
    to read a fucking manual...

    No bugger off, boy...

    Ummmm.... whatever.

    Are you Ted Kennedy? Or maybe you're really the Obamasiah??? OMG!

    Really, please impress us some more, and break this terrible suspense, by
    telling us who you really are. OK?

    To Joe:
    It's people like you who have made this thread a real "joy" (if you
    know what I mean).
    FYI, I HAVE read the (in your words:) "fucking manual" and did not
    find the information required in it. In other words, it is NOT
    I even went to my Honda dealer to get this info. and was told the same
    thing, Joe, that it's not in the 2002 manual. After the service clerk
    checked the Honda (Canada) Web site for this info. (their special Web
    site where mere laymen like I cannot access), she could not find it
    there either. She told me that the service manager, who might
    (should?) know what to do, was out at the moment. Because I had a
    more pressing engagement, I could not wait for him, and, thus, that is
    why I posted this question in Usenet in hopes of getting a simple
    answer instead of "witty" remarks like yours.

    So, Joe, thanks a million for "understanding", and I hope you're
    thoroughly pleased with your condescending remarks.
