Default 95 M3 clock issue

I’m running into a weird issue where i’m unable to set the clock in my 95 M3.

The OBD computer works for every button except for the set/res button. Has one else ran into this issue?

Try resetting your obc. Hold 1000 and 10 together to access the secret menu. Go to test 21. Reset.

Hope it’s not the actual button, as entering any of the hidden menu options, including reset, requires a press of the set/res button.

You’re a lifesaver man. I was able to do the rest and then put in the correct time/date.

There is no single code. It’s the sum of day+month at the moment you unlock it.

This is what I use when dealer lookup codes have errors (this has happened once).

If you don't have the radio card anymore, but know the code, just make a note in your cellphone. Of course you can also do this as a back-up of the card.

On most second hand radio's the code is usually written on the unit itself, since risk of theft of these old units is virtually non-existent
