A couple of questions:

(1) Does the cooling fan have a clutch?
The cooling fan on this car stays on all
the time.
(2) The car when driven from startup, the
first couple of shifts are "delayed"
upshifts...even when warm. The manual talks
about a brief warmup period, but this is
crazy. Normal operation?
(3) The climate control reads in Celcuis
(c) instead of Farenheight..possible to change?
(4)How do I get the alarm system working?
It came with car...but it does function
according according to the manual directions.
Any ideas?

The temp C vrs F can be programmed from the face of the controller. First the version code should be read: Ign on; Press Rest button for greater than 6 seconds, Press the Vent Icon button to set display to 020 - They display will give the version code. A 111 motor with C display will be version 05. You will have to reset to version 06. This can be done from the face with a much more extensive tap dance. If you would email me on Monday I could attach the sequence.
