    Mornin A20 RYM, it dont work at all, it wont rest the trip distance and i cant get into the OBC because its not working. The first time i filled up i the when i got it i wanted to reset the trip distance, like i always used to do on my old car and didnt work, key in postion 1 or beyoned and depress to reset trip distance nothing! i even tried the OBC by holding the button(10 or so sec) and turning the key nothing.

    It may be a cluster problem then, has the button never worked since you have owned the car?

    i`ve had the car for nearly 2 weeks, and it not worked, it must have been reset just before i got it because it read only 12mls.
    there are a few things wrong with the car, but i knew that when i got. the only elecy probs are trip reset and the outside temp sensor is missing, the rest is just body work.

    There are two switches that stick out of the plastic clear instrument cluster, push the one in on the left for a few seconds( petrol gauge side) and that should work! i was thron by the position of the reset too, my first bmw
