Hi

I have recently bought a MY/03 325ci sport coupe with SMG :D

I can't reset my trip meter by holding in the left button on the clocks or by using the computer :(

I have searched the board and have only found other posts asking the same thing but with no replies.

Any [sensible] advice for a noobie?

instrument cluster board damage is all i can think of... to reset the odometer, all it should take is a forefinger push for at least 2-5seconds, and you're done.

If there is no response, then, you possibiliites are:
1) the contacts of the reset button are corroded;
2) the program on your instrument panel is corrupted;
3) you are not pushing the right button; or,
4) (if you are not the original owner) it's possible that the odometer has been previously tampered with...

Many thanks darkhorse, I wondered if because I have the onboard computer tv thing there was a way to reset on there.

I have an e34 5 Series and couldnt reset my trip meter. The left button just wouldn't register. I discovered that the button is a little 'tapered' rubber sleeve that slides over a plastic pin. Inside the sleeve should be a little rubber bump stop to stop in sliding too deep over the pin, and in my case this wasn't functioning as it should. it meant the taper on the rubber sleeve was hitting the hole through the front of the cluster plastic and didn't allow it to push deep enough to actually engage the reset button. Pulling off the sleeve showed the reset button worked, so I found a replacement at a wreckers and problem solved!
