Re-Setting the Clock

I recently installed a new battery in my '03 330xi. All my settings were saved and restored without any problem.
My problem is that everytime I turn the car off and re-start, the clock goes back to --:-- and my tripometer also goes back to 0.
I have disconected and re-conected the battery and tried setting the clock with key in different possitons but nothing works.
Any suggestions?

Setting the Clock

I posted this in response to a post on the difficult controls of this car and thanks to a fellow forum member for improving my instructions, here is my post with that addition in bold.

"I looked at the manual and tried every way I knew how to get the clock to set. The manual for the car directed me to the clock manual and the clock manual directed me to the car manual.

There are two clocks in this car (at least in my car) and the master clock is in the center of the instrument cluster. Set that clock and the radio clock is set.

Ignition off, key in position 1. You set the master clock by using the program stalk. Press that stalk in until the time (or if the clock has lost power --/--) shows up in the center of the instrument cluster then adjust the time using the button/knob sticking out of the cluster by turning it clockwise or counter clockwise as appropriate to get it to read the proper time (if memory serves me correctly it is the right button/knob: someone please correct me if I recall incorrectly, as it was two weeks ago I did this). Once the master time (the program time in the center cluster) is set, it is displayed only when you cycle through the program functions of the trip computer--however, the slave- radio clock-- which is on all the time-- is automatically set."

I'm new too- Welcome
