Question BC Button

I have been searching on how to use this feature, but i cannot get it to work. My book, and online owners book say similar ways of programming the BC button on the stalk, but to no avail. Does anyone know how to use it? I cannot get anything to show up so it can be programmed.

Is your OBC next to your radio functioning, i.e. showing time, MPG, range, etc.?
Also, do you have the phone in your center console? Check out this thread if you do: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum...ontrol-display

no, most E34 don't have the phone. only started getting common on the E38/E39

is the plug still connected under the dash? the BC button has its own connecter seperate to the rest of the indicator stalk functions, because not all E34 have an OBC

I'm not sure about outside of the US, but many e34's came with the phone stateside. All 3 of mine have it.

ahh may be different in the US yeah. i have only seen one E34 with a car phone and that was an M5

but all E34 are prewired for it. infact, every E34 (except 520i and 518i) ever is prewired for every possibly option. e.g., if your 530i doesnt have an OBC, you can plug in an OBC and temp sensors and door chime etc to the appropriate places, and you dont need to pull the dash etc to make it work etc.
