Using the OBC button on your indicator stalk, scroll through until your dash displays the clocl. On your instrument cluster you have two little knobs. Twist the one on the right clockwise and the clock will go forward, twist anti-clockwise, and it'll go backwards.

That's it! And if you push the knob you'll go into military time. Also, if you push the obc button until you get the temp and push the right instrument cluster button you'll change the temp from F to C.

Having a manual would be perfect and reading it even better. Anyway ended up purchasing one of those Hayes Workshop Manuals. Great book and not to hard on the pocket either

Bump for "whaaaat the hell?"

I used to have several functions available with the click of the button on the end of the turn indicator; it would cycle through outdoor temperature, fuel efficiency, kms to the tank being empty, and time. Since my battery died (and came back to life), the clock has been reset, and the only thing showing up now is outdoor temperature. I can't even get to my clock in which to change it! I've seen tonnes of articles and videos about the secret ODB functions; but they're all in the top line of the dash and only really for testing. How do I get my four regular driving functions back?

Thanks,
Sim

Alright, while driving today, I tried the button and it worked as expected! And now it doesn't work. I've never had issues with it before, and now it seems gone altogether.
