BMW's E36 is a compact sedan that was produced throughout the 1990s. BMW equipped it with an on-board computer capable of making many calculations. It can display outside temperature, average speed, estimated cruising range, average fuel consumption, distance to destination, speed limit warning and a timer. It also allows the driver to enter a four-digit immobilisation code to prevent vehicle theft. Calculations based on time use the information from the digital clock, which is manually set.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Press the "CLOCK" key until the left side of the digital display shows "Enter time."

  2. 2

    Enter the time directly using the "1," "10," "100" and "1,000" key buttons.

  3. 3

    Press the "SET/RES" key to lock in the new time for the on-board computer.
