yah, i started fiddling with those 2 buttons as I was driving and it flashed "RESET" which scared the heck outta me. I just stopped and restarted the car and it seemed to forget the button I pushed.....I think.

I will do it your way now.

I've tried this, and it hasn't worked. Tried it in positions 0, 1, 2, and 3. I press button 2 for ages, and nothing happens.

should work, mine's an 07 and it works as stated.

Button 2 is your oil check button. Turn ignition switch on but don't start the car. Press 2, hours will start to flash. etc, etc.

Make sure it's displaying the clock before you do it?

I was going to point out that in mine you have to have the time on the radio aswell to change it, but was beaten to it. :thumbsup:

on a slightly different note does anyone know if you can get the time to display if you fit an aftermarket HU.
