Unhappy

my clock doesn't work at all and reads at -22ş I took it out, upplugged it then plugged it back in but it still won't work right, also when I set the clock it won't change it stays at whatever time I set it at....

should I get a new piece or do I not know how to work it?

The computer which is the clock/temp/memo is probably no good. You are having the same problems that I'm having. You could goto a junk yard and get another computer but it may not be worth the cost.

ok before you try all that and buy a new one, the sensor for the temp usually goes back and reads a bogese temp. so replace that. and then your light in the clock is probably just burned out. replace that too

The sensor for the temp is in the front of the car, in the intake that cools the front brakes. It can easily get broken off in a small accident and never replaced. It looks like a tiny plastic stick with a pair of wires going to it. I bought the replacement part from a dealer, and rigged the wires back together - soon enough I had the proper ambient temp.

Past ownership: 1987 325is, 1988 325i, 1995 325is, 1996 325i Convertible, 1994 325is.

Current ownership (wife's): 2006 X3 3.0i

Future ownership: 3-series of some sort
