Climate Control starts too soon

I just got a 97 328i in a trade (I had a cargo truck). It's my first BMW. (I've been driving a 93 Q45 since 96.)

Problem 1: Where's the cheapest place to buy a new Mass Air Flow Sensor? One of the resistive elements is broken.

Problem 2: It's winter here. The climate control kicks on before the coolant is sufficiantly warm. Is there a solution for this? (I did RTFM :-)

Problem 3: I cannot set the date and time in the On Board Computer. Everything else on it seems to be OK.

Not to sure ref the maf, the climate control is a common failure & can be a DIY if you can use a soldier iron, check out the link

Richard's Web Site

Or there is many places were you can return post your unit for about
$60 plus

I can give you a couple of addresses if you like but there in the UK, maybe try ebay or google

Good luck mate & let me know

Cheers Martin

It's not a failure per se - everything seems to work. It just turns itself on too soon.
