I own a 2000 BMW Z3 2.8 with 44,000 miles on it. Today, I drove my car , which had ½ tank of gas for 20 minutes, parked it for 25 minutes and when I started it the following occurred:
A - The fuel gauge needle falls to empty, but the low fuel light does not come on.
B – The water temperature gauge needle falls to cold and the red overheat light comes on.
C – The Brake Pad warning light comes on.
I immediately stopped at a gas station, filled the tank and checked the cooling system for leaks or signs of overheating. I found nothing wrong.
When I restarted the car, everything returned to normal, except the odometer switched from reading in miles to reading in kilometers.
Do you have a clue as to what could cause such wacky behavior?
and how can I change it back to miles not KM
