Question OBC Block Heater control help

I activated the block heater timer function on the 13-button OBC and cannot figure out how to get back to normal Timer function. I have the owner's manual, but I guess my reading comprehension isn't up to par with ze germans. Any help?

Please let me know how to activate the OBC block heater.
I've owned e30's for 17 years and still can't figure it out!

I sense you are being sarcastic.

If you hit 1000 and 1 while the Timer is activated it switches to Block heater program function. You can set the block heater to come on at a specific time. Of course, not many US cars were equipped with said heater. 13 button OBC has the function just the same.

Never heard of that. If I hit 1000 and 1 it displays my fuel in liters.

Huh, I never knew that. 1000 and 1 always gave me fuel in liters, but I never tried it out while I was under the Timer feature.

Very cool!

That's what I think happened. I was trying to check temp and got stuck like this. It's been a few months. Ill just pull the battery, but I was hoping someone knew about this.
