    Default Gauges are wrong...HELP!

    Our battery had died and we had it jumped off and once we got going down the road it was saying that we were going 115 but we were actually like 35-40mph. Has anyone had this happen? If so what can I do to fix it???

    You can do nothing, to fix the center display.

    Default Metric

    Just a thought, did the system switch to metric (Kilometers per hour) when you jumped it off?

    Had that happened; they would have needed to be going over 70 mph, to read 115 kph...

    Default Agree..!!

    the computers resets to default which is kilometers and temp changes scales also. Clock will be off also and need to be reset. If jumping be sure the other vehicle has the engine off and ignition off as well.

    Right on Bob. I'm sure they'd know if they were going 70mph or 30mph as they stated. I've had the battery out of my 2011 RT and 2014 RT many times and it never reverts to metric. It comes back right where I had everything set -- suspension, radio settings, mph, etc.

    It is normal for the settings in the gauge cluster to be retained with the battery removed or goes below 10V. But what can happen in this situation can be unpredictable. It is my understanding that the settings are stored every time the cluster shuts down. So with power possibly being intermittent when the booster cables were connected. Odd things could happen. Check all the settings and set to your preference and see what happens.

    That's my thinking anyway.

    You might try disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and then reconnect it (sort of a reboot), if they are not working proper now it can't hurt.

    115 kph is about 93 mph.

    As Gypsy mentioned earlier, not quite!! 115 kph is 'about' 71.46 mph.
