520D 58 Plate E60 - Change Gear indicator on Dash

Hi All,

One of my keys for my car displays the change Gear indicator when you are driving to tell you when to change to save fuel consumption, and my other key does not...

Does anyone know how to switch this on and off per key as I can't find it anywhere??

Best regards

Tim

Are both keys identical?

You may have to have the key reprogrammed. The dealership can do it but it will cost a fair bit. their should be places in your area that can do this.

its odd that one key is doing it and not the other. Look into having them reprogrammed if you wanna fix it
