One would probably need to know the MAKE ( IE Ford , Gm , Chrysler , Etc. ) ; MODEL , ( Focus , Impala , Caravan , Etc. ) ; model YEAR ; ( 2010n ) ; and POSSIBLY which radio the clock is in , ( Radio with 6 CD changer , Etc. ) .
If you have the owner's manuals , they would tell you how to change the clock . If not , go to the dealer , and ask if they will teach you for free .
does cigarette lighter work you most likely have a blown fuse in the memory of clock it is part of the stereo but has 2 fuses that function it, power and memory. If its in the radio/clock all presets on radio usually go out to, look for blown fuse.
It should be in your owners manual. Depending on which radio you have, you either turn the radio off, push the clock button, then advance the time with the seek or tune button - or - push the clock button and put the time in using the number buttons then push the clock button again to store the setting.
setting stations on Fords are easy,put it on the station you want to program and push the channel button in and hold for about 2 seconds then it should flash,now the channel is set..now for the clock,with the key on and radio turned off,press the clock button,then press the seek or scan forward or reverse to adjust the time,then hit the clock button again to make sure it sets.
It really depends on the type and model of your radio. Below is the generic clock set proceedure for the most popular radio at that time.
Hope this works for you.
To set the clock, just:
Press the SET button. The word SET will light up in the VF display.
Within 5 seconds, press and hold the SEEK button until the correct hour
appears on the display.
Then, press and hold the SCAN button until the correct minute appears
After you set the time, the word SET will remain in the VF display for a
on the display.
Try this, put the key in the ignition and let it be on the first
turn right marked "ACC" or you can turn off the stereo and you will notice that
only the Digital Clock screen will show. Turn the Volume/Audio/Sel knob and press
on the "DISP" button simultaneously for about 4 seconds then release the "DISP"
button. The digital clock will start blinking, and then use the Tune/Seek
arrows pointing up and down to change the time. If the hour digit is blinking change
the hour and after you have changed it press "DISP" then the minute digit will
start to blink change it using the arrows, when you are done press "DISP" again
or leave the clock for between 4 to 8 seconds the clock will start working
If it's the original radio, you have to hold the "set" button and press some of the other buttons to change the hour and minutes. Sorry, can't remember which ones exactly but the "set" button for sure.
