If you can't get it to reset to English then take it to your dealer. Reflashing your performance tune isn't going to correct this

Lol. Mine has been into the dealer so many times that last week the cashier said I should have a room there. Getting it fixed is better than hating an issue

I can help you. I took a lot of German language classes. OR just retrace your steps to turn it back to English.

When you take it to the dealer, if they say "Ich habe eine gro▀e Liebe-Gurke!"

You are in trouble.

I can certainly understand the frustration that you are experiencing. On 4-39 in your owner's manual it states:

Language: select the Language menu and the following will be displayed: English, French, Spanish. Turn the MENU / SELECT knob toselect the language. Press theknob to confirm and go back to thelast menu.

I hope this information is helpful. If you are still experiencing an issue, it is best to get in touch with your local dealership.
