Resetting clock on 2002 Suzuki Vitara

My battery was recently disconnected and upon reconnecting my clock is set to the wrong time.  I for the life of me cannot figure how to get the time reset. Please help!
It has been suggested to use the "display" button.  My car does not have a display button.

Hold the arrows on the bottom right hand side until you hear a beep. The one on the left is for the hours and the right is the minutes. I tried every button combination for a month until i figured out it was triggered by holding. Hope this helps.

a quick tip for you. disconnect the battery negative terminal just before 12:00 O'clock noon. Then right at noon reconnect the cable. Most radio's default set to 12:00 noon. Now you clock is set.

I can change the time on radio clock but it just stays on that time

I had this problem after a main dealer repair that required the battery to be disconnected for a couple of hours. I put i right by leaving the battery disconnected for 12 hours until all the memory including radio presets had cleared. After reconnecting it returned to normal. I t may take yours longer or less time but the radio presets clearing seems to indicate it will restore the clock.

2003 sierra gauges not working plus dash plus drains my battery any suggestions ?

Try this simple trick. Shut off every thing in your vehicle, radio, ac, lights, windshield wipers etc.Turn off the vehicle put it in park. Disconnect your battery , wait 5 minutes. Then Without turning any thing on leaving the vehicle in park reconnect the battery start the vehicle and let it Idle for approx 10 minutes. This allows your computer to reset all of your gauges. By assuring that everything is off your computer can concentrate on resetting everything correctly without missing a step . This will set your Idle and all of your Gauges. Whenever your battery is disconnected for what ever reason this step should be followed immediately upon reconnect.

Beyond the flippant reply of "get it serviced" try the folliwing:

Replaced battery on 98 Porsche Boxster and now odometer is wrong

I had the same problem and was about to take the car to the dealership tomorrow, but I decided to try disconnecting the battery and see if it would reset itself. When I reconnected the battery the odometer mileage went back to where it was before I changed the battery. It worked!

Maybe it will work for you. Good luck!

Rad fans run with engine off drain the battery 2001 Dodge Caravan

I have never heard of any tech telling a customer that thier PCM was nearing the end of life. Your problem most likely exists in the PDC( power ditribution center) the underhood fuse/relay box. There are layers of internal wires and connectors which can short etc. also, the pcm could cause this issues, but would set a code when doing so. Another thing to check is to see if the fan wiring harness is shorted to another component. It is impossible to diagnose your vehicle over the net, I recommend you take your van to a reputable dealer who's techs are trained to deal with these wiring issues.
