2001 BMW 330Ci Q&A

2001 BMW 330Ci Question: Time anyone?

How do you set the time on the radio. Any ideas why my miles per gallon is droping? 22.8 last time I checked. -
Answer 1
Firs, is the time correct on the instrument panel? How do you keep up with the maintenance? Is there any warning light on, like check engine? How many miles in the car? Zee -
Comment 1
No,, I had to replace the radio so it is blank. and yes the check engine light is on, I have a reset tool, it only has 58,xxx on it. -
Comment 2
I'd do a computer diagnostic to see what code(s) are in the DME, that might be the cause of the high oil consumption. Zee -
Comment 3
not consuming oil, its just the service engine soon light -
Comment 4
I'm sorry, I meant fuel consumption. If you get a computer diagnostic and post the DTC we might be able to help you with the higher fuel consumption. Zee -
Comment 5
Can I do that with the code reader? how can I do that without taking it to a dealer? -

Answer 3
use the turn signal and go to time, Then twisted the right hand stud on the dash to left or right. It looks like an odometer reset. -
