Default Anyone know how to check engine temp on these things?

I understand that some combination of button pushing will access some info including things like oil pressure and engine temp.

Can someone please explain in layman's terms how to access the engine temps while driving using the BC controls?

Press and hold SETTINGS until you hear beep. Push BC repeatedly until you get the T-value which is your engine temperature. In case of advanced display, it's written in plain english.

Im not sure if oil pressure is in there or not but here is how to get the test screens.

1) Make sure you are on the main screen (Doesnt matter if its on audio of BC)
2) Hold down the setting button until you hear the audio chime (somewhere between 5-10 sec)
3) Then press the BC button to cylce through the test screens and eventually back out (or just hit the main once you have seen the page you needed)

I believe the oil temp is on the 4th page (hit the BC button 5 times, or maybe its the 3rd page and it the button 4 times)

Dang Opel Blitz beat me
