I left the other hidden functions out of my writeup because they are mainly used for diagnostic purposus.

But if you're intrested, heres how to fully unlock the obc and access it completely:

This forum is fantastic, I didn't even know I had a BC button, it certainly makes retrieving information from the OBD much more ergonomic.

Isn't this backwards? The 1 should change the 4, the 10 should change the 3, the 100 should change the 2, the 1000 should change the 1, right?


Or it could be that I'm over tired and shouldn't be awake, much less throwing my around...

Default Re: Confused - OBC Buttons and Settings

I've tried setting my clock several times I can put the time in but then it's stuck with "input time" if I press anything else it zeros out the time how to I set it up rite

Sorry I know it's probably something simple but I'm new to BMW

How about when check control comes on to tell you low washer fluid and it's full or tail light failure and they are OK? Is there a reset for these? I keep getting these codes and they do not exist.

The system is actually pretty smart. You probably need to replace your washer fluid level sensor. And if you're running aftermarket taillights, the fake tail light failure is common. If you have Depos, there is a fix that involves clipping a splice in them or something. Search around.
