Mine's the same too... I think you need to have the OBC stalk and have the dealer enabled this feature before you can access the all the hidden functions....

I tested it yesterday and was a little while getting the hang of it but it worked after like 2minutes trying and re-trying and I must say the instrument cluster when the needels go up and down is awsome

Does this apply to US cars too?

ignition position 2 is 2nd click, right before crank?
counter reset button is the one on the blinker?

anybody tried this?

just press the left side button in the dash (trip meter/counter) when car is off. ORRR when you first put in the key and turn it, it'll show up

your car should automatically turn all interior lights off after the door has been open for a set amount of time to save the battery.. so no worries, just leave the door open instead of opening and closing it, and after a little while, they will all shut off.

OH oops my bad...
uhhhhhh for the Brake Fluid...just pop your hood, and visually inspect your little brake fluid reservoir there're max/min lines

edit: I dun think we have the brake fluid counter.......unless it's a sensor thing ON the dash, not in the LCD display, but actually one of the lights that light up...lol sooo maybe that other guy had low fluid, annnd the car sensed needing a top-off =P and he thought that when he turned his key, there was a counter? iono...whatever lol...either way, it's just too simple to pop your hood every once in a while to top off fluids =]

31. Turn the radio off then on again. Donít touch any button except the 'm' button - the button you use to tune the radio frequency manually. Press and hold the 'm' button for TEN seconds or until the display changes. It will then show the serial number of the unit. Normally when you press 'm', the display will reflect that by replacing 'ST' (stereo tuning) with 'm'. When holding the 'm' button for this procedure, the display should not do this - you will continue to see 'ST' for the ten seconds. Now if the display has changed, you are in a configure mode on the radio. If you press the '>' or '<' button you change modes. ....
These two are ones I wanna do. But I cant get it work either of them.
I dont even know if brake fluid due can be displayed.

And I cant get into Audio setting by pressing 'm' button.

Are those something not available on US-spec models?
