Hello guys,


Yesterday, I was cleaning my car interior when I noticed a very nice option in my car that I didn’t know about it before in E36s. But because I was cleaning and very busy with it, I couldn’t check it until today. This morning, I sit behind my wheel and tried it and it was really fantastic. Did you want to know what I’ve found? Did I have you attention? LOOOL! ok, cut the crap, I will let you know what I’ve found.


Have you ever noticed that the turn signal stick behind your wheel has an arrow drawn on it with a BC text on it? If not, then I think you should sit behind your car wheel and try to see it. If you see that, then press the turn signal stick and you’ll notice that it’s clicking. What do you think this click do? It controls the OBD (On Board Computer). Every time you click on it, it will move to the next option and display it on the screen of your OBD. If you didn’t understand the procedure, I prepared some photos for you.







Hmmm… nice find isn’t it. I hope you liked it as much as I did. OK bye for now and I
will be BACK.


Wait for more from BMW E36 Blog.


best regards,

Tony Sticks.

    Man… that’s what your user manual is for! I recommend reading page 83. You’ll find out that you can also program the sequence of the data (and whish data) will appear on the OBD.

    Unfortunately, the manual I received with my car is in German. When I need something from it, I will have to translate it using Google, LOOOL!

    You know, your comment made me think of posting the BMW E36 manual on the website (in english) ? what do you think? but I should find it online first 😉
