If you try to clear codes for "permanent" faults on any car they will return immediately. This is because the fault condition is still present and it's sometimes the only way to find out what faults are still present and what are historic or intermittent faults.

Would you be able to change the display from km to mph with i909?

i haven't been thru the "Display" section, but i'm guessing that may be where the km or miles units are found--i'll put it on the list of stuff to check.

Did you check this out (i know it was a while ago) or do you have a link for the painful video?

i think the owner's manual has instructions on how to configure the display for km or mph. It was also posted on the forum by someone but i don't recall which thread, maybe JoeS recalls this? AFAIK, The scannr tool doesn't do this, it is done by the operator in the car.

In the 2012 (and newer) North American version of the i-MiEV, here's what the manual says:
It is possible to select the speedometer's display units -
1. Press the reset button to display the odometer
2. Keep the reset button pressed for two seconds or longer to change the display units from MPH to km/h or from km/h to MPH.

If I recall, this did not necessarily work on other models...

Edit: we have at least one thread for this - http://myimiev.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=4770&p=42086

tout, I see from your previous posts that you've been trying to make this change on a JDM car imported to the UK. Did you ever import it? Do let us know how it turns out.
