How to change Voltage units from kV to V or Current units from kA to A on the front panel?

Issue
Meter is displaying current kA and voltage in kV instead of Amps (A) and Volts (V) on the front panel

Product Line
ION 8800, 8600, 8500, 8400, 8300.
ION 7650, 7600, 7550, 7500
ION7400
PM8000

Environment
Front panel display 

Cause 
For Voltage:
If 'PT Primary' value is between 1<->1000: Front Panel shows Voltage values in V
If 'PT Primary' value is >1000: Front Panel shows Voltage values in kV

For Current:
If 'CT Primary' value is between 1<->1000: Front Panel shows Current values in A
If 'CT Primary' value is >1000: Front Panel shows Current values in kA

Resolution
Change primary and secondary values to smaller than 1000, but make sure to keep the same ratio.
For example, if the CT ratio is 4000:5, change it to 800:1
