I own a 2000 BMW Z3 2.8 with 44,000 miles on it. I drove my car , which had tank of gas for 20 minutes, parked it for 25 minutes and when I started it the following occurred:
A - The fuel gauge needle falls to empty, but the low fuel light does not come on.
B The water temperature gauge needle falls to cold and the red overheat light comes on.
C The Brake Pad warning light comes on.
I immediately stopped at a gas station, filled the tank and checked the cooling system for leaks or signs of overheating. I found nothing wrong.

When I restarted the car, everything returned to normal, except the now the odometer switched from reading in miles to reading in kilometers.

Do you have a clue as to what could cause such wacky behavior and how can I get my odometer to read miles again?
