Hello,

I just bought a 325i 2002 and haven't gotten the manual yet. I'm having trouble figuring out how to set the clock!

Can anyone here help me?

Storme, I tried what you said and it doesn't seem to work. Instead it changes the temperature display from Fahrenheit to Celsius.

I'm at a loss....does anyone know if there's an online manual or somewhere I can find this info? Or does anyone know what I should do?

Thanks

I think you have the computer set to show you the temp instead of the time. Push the button on the blinker stick thing till you see the time, then turn that knob. That should do it.

With my '05 325, you need to hit the clock button on the radio first so that it is displaying the time and then have the clock display showing on the computer then you can change the time using the right hand rubber stick under the tach. That should change the time for you. Pressing it will change from 12 hr to 24 hr display.

That still didn't work....I'm at a loss ghead

The rubber stick under the tach only changed the temperature display from F to C and vice versa. I pressed the clock button on the radio first too. UGH!!!

Anyone else take a crack at it? It's a 2002 325i.

Or does anyone know if there's a place online where I can look at an electronic version of the manual? Or do you guys have a manual? Maybe someone can scan the clock page for a 325i (2002)? I'm really going nuts here! Thanks for the help, all!

When you start the car what is showing on the dash display? Is it the time or the temp?

When I start the car, the dash shows the number of miles and the temperature. There is no time. I assume that the time should be displayed where the radio is, but instead it is shown in all dashes like: --:--

start the car. press the turn signal button in to change from miles/temp to time. You may have to press it a couple of times. When you have the clock displayed, turn the knob (the right hand one on the cluster) towards the passenger window. This will change the time.

Thats what I was trying to say earlier! In order to change the time you have to push that button on the blinker till you see the time on the dash (where you see the temp now) then you can change it with the knob!

Nope...Tried that. The knob doesn't turn on my car. I tried. I also tried holding the knob down for a long time to see if that would work. Nothing. used

Curt, I didn't see your reply until after posting this so I'll try again.

Ok, I'm back. I FINALLY found that button and got the display on the dash to change from temp to clock. Then I pushed the stick thing under the tach. Didn't do anything. Then I tried turning the stick thing. Didn't do anything....The engine doesn't need to be on to set the clock does it?

Thsi is turning into a full time job..lol. I like to help though!

If you have it set to the time...your closer at least. If you turn the knob on the right (under the speedometer) it should change the clock in increments of 1 minute...if you hold it then it should change rapidly. Pushing it in should turn it from AM/PM to 24 hour clock (Military Time). And just for fun...try turning the other knob and see if that deos anything...Im pretty sure its the right one though. Let me know if you get it eventually...if that deosnt work...im stumped. Good Luck!!

Yeah, it is the one on the right. You have to twist it towards the passenger door. Clockwise. You will get it now. jkloese explained it well.
