Question about 1998 Mercury Sable

1 Answer

I was waiting to turn left when my radio did something weird and the clock set back to 12:00. As if it had a power outage. Went into a store briefly. When I tried to drive it again, it wouldn't shift into the next gear. Stopped the car again. Restarted after a few minutes and it drove fine, no troubles. Is this an electrical problem?

Depends on the radio.
General idea is this:

push other button HOUR MIN up down seek scan ff rew (one button will control hour other button will control minute)
turn radio power back on. clock should remain set.

I change the time on the clock but when I turn the motor off and restart, the time goes back to the original time. How do I get it to keep the time after I change it?


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.

Installing stereo in chevy s10 pickup now my gauges aren't workign


Did you disconnect the stereo wires you'd hooked up and see if everything went back to normal? It's easy to connect some custom equipment to the wrong wire. Depending on the stereo you installed, there would probably be 3 wires that are battery positive at any time, and at least one ground wire. There's a wire that's "hot" all the time that provides power to keep the station memory and clock, etc., set. Then the wire that actually powers the radio when you turn it on. The other wire would be hot FROM the radio when oyu turn the radio on, and it's meant for cars that have an electric antenna so the antenna raises automatically when you turn the radio on. If you connect either one of those wires to the wrong wiring harness wire, you can have power to something at an inappropriate time. The best thing to do (without cutting the harness wires) is to use the proper power leads in the factory wiring harness. Otherwise, if you look at your truck fuse-box diagram, you should see that one fuse is marked like "constant battery". I think that will be the fuse towards the front of the truck in the very bottom row of fuses. The wire for your station memory/clock can go to that fuse. The fuse towards the BACK of the truck in that same row is "radio/ignition". THAT fuse only sends power when you turn the ignition switch on or to accessories. Use it for the radio power. If you don't have an electric antenna, don't bother with that wire. To wire straight to a fuse, you need to determine which leg of the fuse power comes in on, then strip about half an inch from the wire and wrap it around the leg of the fuse that goes in the OTHER side. That way your system is protected by the fuses. If/when all that is done, you may have blown a fuse or relay in the big box under the hood on yop of the left fender-well. Let me know if you need help still, but as this problem is 4+ months old, I imagine you fixed it already. bushman_dread@msn.com

How do i set the clock in my 1991 gmc seirra 1500


If it is the factory Delco/GM radio, should work something like this.

Turn the truck on (does'nt have to be running just accesories on), turn the radio power off (turn volume knob all the way left till off, or power button off depending on the radio). I believe there are two buttons on the front next to each other, seek/scan maybe? Press and hold to change the time. One does hours, one does minutes.

My radio display and clock went out on my 2005 Grand Am


Do you have a CD sitting in the radio? If so, find the radio fuse and pull it out for 20 secs and turn the car to the on position and wait 20 secs. Turn the car off again and put the fuse back in. Wait 10 secs and turn the car back to the on position and hopefully the radio will power back on.... some Radios get really picky if a CD has been sitting inside for too long...it worked with a Volkswagen so I don't know if it'll work with a GM... worth a shot
