    For the past day my radio didnt come on at all. I probably started the durango 10 times during this period. Then yesterday when I went to leave work, started the vehicle, the radio works again. My clock didnt lose time or my preset stations all were still there. Will see what happens today when I leave for work if it works or not. One thing I have noticed is that if it doesnt come on right away when I start the vehicle it wont come on while I'm driving and the radio doesn quit when I'm driving. any more suggestions??

You will need to pull the radio and verify the connections at the back are tight and fully locked into the radio connector cavity. If all looks ok then you may have a defective radio or the connector may have a bad pin in it.

SOURCE: Radio/Cassette/CD combo in 2000 Durango just

You might have to pull deck out from dash enough to make sure all 12+ connections to stereo have power as required. There is more than 1 power connection.
You should have a red with blue stripe wire that has constant +12v, as well as a red,with white stripe wire, that only has power with key on, or in accessory position. (switched) . Double check all accessory fuses and radio fuses as well before.

SOURCE: clock not available

I took the truck back for warranty work and this was the dealer's explanation: This is a known, but rare, glitch in the radio. It is not widespread enough for Dodge to issue a bulletin, but there is a write-up in the computer system that Dodge technicians access that covers this. The "repair" is to disconnect the battery for 5 minutes and/or remove the IOD (Ignition Off Draw fuse(s)). The radio then "resets" itself. If the problem persists, they have to replace a component of the radio system.

SOURCE: time clock change on dodge ram navigation radio

Press "NAV" to go to the main navigation menu.

Scroll down and select "System Settings"

Scroll down and select "Clock Setting"

Make sure "Show GPS Clock" is selected with a red check in the box.

I had to switch "Daylight Savings" from "ON" to "OFF" in order to bring the time back an hour. I assume that I'll just have to switch it back to "ON" in the Spring in order to move the time forward and hour.

You can buy adaptor plugs that allow a simple hook up at most car stereo places.  However, when you increase the power going to the speakers you also have to replace the speakers to handle the higher power or you'll toast them.

1990 Buick Reatta Radio turns on but no sound no seeking no scanning no antenna?

There are two fuses
one feeds power to the radio at all times to keep the clock correct.
The other fuse is for power when you turn it on, that one might be blown.

Ever since I took out my battery and put it back in the radio hasn't work. None of the buttons work except the volume when a cd is in but nothing else works. It's a pioneer radio deh p7500mp.

Looks like it's the same thing that happens when I remove the power cord from my home hi-fi system... when I reconnect it it goes crazy on display mode till I reset the clock. In your case, the obvious difference is that it may have lost the clock time and memory presets.. see if retiming the clock and reprograming the tunner presets does the trick.. also check the memory fuse...usually the one on a pink wire.

No Voltage to Yellow radio wiring for vehicle. Next Step?

I'm pretty sure the yellow wire supplies 12 volts to keep the clock time correct when the radio is powered down. The radio main power is usually red (+)and black (-).
I think you are giving the color of the fuse, not the wire, since 20 amps would be for the main radio power and a much smaller fuse would serve to energize only the clock in the radio.
Either way "Bravo" on your accomplishment.

Hi I had to disconnect the power to the passenger sliding door. ever since i did the clock in the radio goes to 12:oclock every time the ignition is turned off i do not want to re connect the sliding Door...

Hi, It seems that when you pulled power from your sliding door(I'm Assuming fuse?) to your radio they were connected.
The best bet if your radio is stock is to look up the users manual and find out which wire comming from the radio is the one used for Time/song memory while your car isnt runnning.

Radio/clock will not work. fuse 10 amp is good

There is usually 2 power sources to that stereo, one for when key on & one constant for radio memory & clock, you know that right? Check for that& Make sure it has good ground also. Use another ground source from back of stereo to metal just to be sure, if no luck, probably time for new stereo.
