    Your radio will have 12vdc power at all times at one wire in the harness, this is for the memory, so you don't lose time & stations (pre-set)

    There will be another power wire that only feeds 12vdc when key in "on" or "accessories" positions. Have you tried pulling radio out & making sure you have clean, tight connectors/connections at rear of radio?

There should be a "H" and "M" on the radio panel. Adjacent should be very small circles (same black color). Use a pen to push these "circles" in to adjust the time.

Radio does not work when its cold outside until truck is warm 1996 dodge dakota . if i need to replace radio w/ cassett player, how do i do it.

Very strange, if you are positive that the radio unit is problematic, it might be a cold soldering, defective capacitor which works on higher temp or similar. For replacing, in the simplest case, get access to the back of the present unit. Write down the wires and according to the manual for the new unit, connect them. Fix the new unit in place.

Not sure but you may have a radio that needs a code input. the radio thinks it was taken out and a code needs to be put back in at the proper time. if you bought the truck new it should be in oners manual. if not you have to get it from a dealer. you may have to pay for it.
