Look, it's easy. Push the button on cornering light stick until you see a clock on your board computer, then set it up with right button on instrument table, under rpm gauge (I guess that's the one you supposed didn't do a thing) - by rotating it just one notch (that's as far as it goes) to the clockwise or counterclockwise direction. I hope you understand, I know my English is not the best, but I see your is even worse and, so I don't care :)

1. Turn key to the 1st ignition switch

2. Press the button on the left steering wheel stick inward towards the wheel (it's a button on the tip of the high beam stick that presses ---> ways).

3. Press it until you reach the clock setting (you'll cycle through temperature and mileage I believe)

4. Once at the clock you'll need to reach behind the wheel and turn the right push-knob on your gauge cluster (the one that show miles driven, etc.)

right = + minutes
left = - minutes

It takes awhile so hold it for a few secs until it starts to pick up.

Done :thumbsup:

When I did mine I had to twist it a bit harder than I felt comfortable doing. When you rotate it enough mine made a small click sound.

you don't hold it in, you just press it. keep pressing it until the clock appears in the screen
