3-Series (E46, E90)Chat relating to the BMW 3-Series from 1999 to Current. Models include: BMW 316i, BMW 318i, BMW 318Ci, BMW 320i, BMW 323i, BMW 325i, BMW 330i, BMW 328 Ci, BMW 328i, BMW 325i/xi, BMW 330Ci, BMW 320d, BMW 330d, BMW 335d.
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 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!

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!!
