displaying the temperature

okay i just purchased my 09 LX-s coupe about 2 weeks ago and im tryin to figure out how to display the temperature on the odometer. i read the manual and all it say is to press and hold the reset button and it should show up but its not showing up on my odometer, its jsut reseting my mileage. so how do get the outside temp to show up on the odometer?

Think your right. Unless it was an add on, I believe the EX is the only model that comes with outside temp.

If you look around you'll also see indicators for VCM, front and rear fog lights and many more. Also if you look closely on the central display, you'll see USB, Bluetooth and XM. None of those are equipped.

It would be nice to have the temp available on all odometer settings. When you do find it, its on the setting least used. Go figure!

Honda really drop the ball on the out side temp. I guess they were trying to cut corners and save money.

I'm not sure about the current generation, but I remember you could purchase an outside temperature unit which could be installed. And yes, it is frustrating to see that your display has the capability to display things like Bluetooth, USB, temperature, etc. but it won't due to the trim level.

It could be done on the 7th gen but not the 8th gen. This was a topic here in the past.

OP has an LX and if I'm not mistaken, none of the LXs' ever had an outside temp. sensor as far as 7th and 8th gen models go. Idk about the 6th gen Accords. Only the trim levels with auto dual-zone climate control (EX-L) had it because the car uses that outdoor temp reading to automatically adjust the climate settings.

CHH has the outdoor temperature sensor add-on for the 7th gen LX & EX models, but they don't for the 8th gens. Maybe they'll come out with one if there's a high enough demand for it?
