Question about 1998 Pontiac Grand Prix
"Not working" covers a lot of ground. Is it dead? is the display incorrect? Do the controls not work? I would spend some time making sure the clock is defective before progressing.
Assuming it is electric (no '98 car should be mechanical, should it?) check the fuse first. It is probably fine, but it is the easiest check you can make. If the fuse is good and the wiring seems intact (mouse hasn't eaten through a wire, etc. - don't laugh, it happens), then the clock itself is probably bad. I would find a replacement in a junk yard that allowed me to take my own parts out. In getting the replacement clock out you will learn how to install it in your vehicle. You could also check your library for a service manual for clues.
Verify your replacement clock works before tearing your dash apart to replace your defective unit. I must say, dashboard work is some of my least favorite repairs. Anyway, install the new one, put your car back together, hide the parts that didn't fit putting it all back, and you should be good to go. Your dealer could also replace the clock I would think, but the $$ might make me think I could live with the problem.
