First things first, if you havent already done so, check the owners manual. If you lost it or dont have one, i suggest 1 of these 2 procedures:

1.) Next to the radio, there should be 2 little holes. They are actually buttons. One of these has hours or "h" above it, while the other is labelled minutes or "m". Use a pen to press those little buttons to set the correct time.


2.) Use the knobs to tune the radio (AM/FM and volume) to set the time. This is how it works:

-Press and hold the Time button
-The "hours" on the display should flash
-Turn the radio tuning knob to set the correct time
-Press and hold the tuning knob
-The "minutes" on the display should flash
-Set the correct time

Then you should either wait for it to stop flashing or press the time button to set it.

How do u disconnect the emergency brake on a 1987 dodge dakota 4x4

It depends on where the cable is stuck.
You can disconnect it at the connection points, you have a front, center, and two rear cables. But if the cable is stuck at one of the brake drums, disconnecting it at the front or center connector won't free up the brake shoes.

Gauges won't work on a 1987 dodge dakota

Most cars have a voltage regulator behind the dashboard that supplies a stable voltage for the gauges. Have a look, if you follow the wires from the gauges you will probably find one wire from each gauge going to a small regulator box. If you cant get a new one an electronic technician can build one for you.

    How do I set the clock? Lost the owners manual! 2005 Dodge Dakota SLT 4x4

    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.
