Wow, that dashboard looks like what I used to do to the Casio watches I had when I was a kid - press all buttons at the same time and the results are similar :D

rear fogs

i'm pretty sure it's deleted here in canada as well. i certainly don't have it and haven't seen any show room cars with the dual fog light buttons.

in fact i don't even have cruise control but the indicator light is there. :)

oil light changes colour

an interesting thing to note. the oil light indicator(beside the highbeam) turns from orange to red once the dials have reached their full sweep.

kinda neat to see that the oil light has two colours. orange for low on oil..and red for ur killing the engine now.

steps to dashlight up...

junglee said:
ChrisTO,
can you post the steps to making the dash light up...
NO cruise...what kind of mystery BMW are you driving?
Here are the steps in detail..

1) drive car to very highspeed (at undisclosed/mystery location) ignoring rev limiter and in fact chipping car to bypass rev limiter.
2) open all doors in hopes of getting airborne. after all BMW was an airplane engine manufacturer at one point.
3) at terminal velocity snap the photo of the dashboard.
3a) post photo on bimmerfest.com
4) hope that BMW will cover any engine damage caused by this stunt.
5) post on bimmerfest.com<insert favorite bmw board here if not bimmerfest.com> and ask fellow members if steps 1 and 2 caused any permanent engine damage.
6) being one not to believe in advice from Internet forums, spend many sleepless nights thinking of the potential engine damage that may have occurred.
7) in a state of insomnia, sell the car to a local dealership
8) junglee buys a used bimmer and brags about the great deal, not knowing that his 'new' used bimmer went through steps 1 and 2.
9) junglee posts dumb a$$ question about myster BMW on bimmerfest.com and discovers that his great bimmer deal not such a great deal afterall.
10) repeat above.

here are the real steps

before this thread gets out of control..(use at your own risk).

and junglee...if i see you and your hokey novelty plates in the streets of TO...u'll know what hostility means. :)

1. Car off
2. Press and hold the mileage reset button
3. Switch to KL R or ignition switch #2
4a. Do nothing and the display will automatically go into sub tests of main menu
0.1. The top part f the display will show "TEST 0.1"
Sub-Test:
12345 1.0 is the VIN
4812 1.1 is the Body #
834762 6_1.2 is the part # for the cluster
010203 1.3 is the coding/diagnosis/bus index
3495 1.4 is the manufacturing date (calander week/year)
04_600 1.5 is the hardware/software # of cluster (HW:04, SW:6.00)
415_06 3_1.6 injection status, number of cylinders, engine factor.

4b. Press and release the reset button immediately (<1 second) to advance to the
next main test menu. Scrolling through the numbered test functions is achieved by
pressing the instrument cluster button. The button is either momentarily pressed
(tapped) < 1 second or pressed and held for > 1 second.

This signals the BC to display the sub-tests of the displayed main test menu or
continue on to the next main test menu.

Go directly to Test 19 to unlock the test features.
TEST 19 Lock/Unlock
Sub-tests: L-On L-OFF
Display changes from "L-ON" to "L-OFF" every second. To unlock test functions
press the cluster button immediately when it changes to "L-OFF". Tests are
automatically locked when exiting test functions.

TEST 2 - Cluster System Test - Acticates the gauge drivers, indicators and LEDs to
confirm function.

TEST 03 - SI Data
Sub-tests:
1500 3.0 = liters
0 3.1 = Periodic inspection days (not applicable in US)

TEST 04 - Momentary Consumption
Sub-tests:
0267 4.0 = 26.7 liters/1000km
0073 4.1 = 7.3 liters per hour

TEST 5 - Distance Gone Consumption
Sub-Tests:
0195 5.0 = 19.5 liters/100km
226 5.1 = momentary distance to go (226km)

TEST 6 - Fuel Level sensor inputs in liters
Sub-Tests:
237415 6.0 = Fuel level averaged
*LH sensor input = 23.7 liters
*RH sensor input = 41.5 liters
0652 6.1 - total tank level averaged = 65.2 liters
0667 1_6.2 = indicated value and tank phase
* 1 = both sensors are ok
* 2 = one sensor fault
* 3 = implausible input

TEST 7 - Temperature and Speed
Sub-tests;
032 7.0 = coolent temp input 32C
245 7.1 = outside temp input 24.5C
5283 7.2 = engine speed 5,283RPM
058 7.3 = vehicle speed 58km/h

TEST 8 - Input value in HEX form
Sub-Test;
XXX 8.0 thru 8.3 = Hex code, instrument cluster inputs.

TEST 9 - Battery Voltage
Sub-Test;
125 9.0 = 12.5v

TEST 10 - Country Coding
Sub-Test;
02 10.0 US 02

TEST 11 - Cluster Code
Sub-test:
000003 11.0 = cluster code

TEST 12 - Not used

TEST 13 - Gong Test
Sub-test;
GONG 13.0 = activate gone by pressing button (gond response is delayed)

TEST 14 Fault memory (not for diagnosis)

TEST 15 thru 18 - Not used

TEST 19 - Lock unlock function

TEST 20 - Avgerage fuel consumption - correction factor.

The factor follows previous systems, with adjustment range of 750 to 1250. The
adjustment method is new for the base cluster. If adjsutment is necessary, enter
into test 20 using the cluster button.

The correction factor number is changed by using the sub-test for the "ones, tens
and hundreds of the factor number. The digits will automatically scroll through 0-9
within each group (ones, tens, hundreds)

Sub-tests;
XXX9 20.0 = press the button when the correct "ones" position is attained.
XX5X 20.1 = Press the button when the correct "tens" position is attained.
12XX 20.2 = Press the button when the correct "hundreds" position is attained.

TEST 21 - Software reset
Sub-test;
Reset 21.0 = reset software.

NOTE: Using the test function of 7.2 will give you a digital tachometer! Becareful
when using this function and driving on the road. The display is low and will divert
attention from the road!

Thanks for posting this info.
I've been looking for a way to adjust my average consumption indicator for a long time, and needless to say, I jumped at it when I saw this post.
Unfortunately, I wasn't able to go into the subtests for 20.
The display shows "test 20.0", but pushing the button doesn't advance it to 20.1 or 20.2. Furthermore, the digits don't automatically scroll in 20.0. They display "--------".
Yes, I know how to get into subtest menus. It works for the other tests. Just test 20 doesn't go into submenus.
Anyone tried this yet?
