SOURCE: 91 mercury topaz cant set the clock on the radio

Did you read your owners manual? Not sure what kind of radio it has, but most of the ford radios from this era work like this: Hold down the clock button then ussually if you push seek down it will advance the hours, and if you push seek up it will advance the minutes.

How do I set the clock on my 2003 dodge dakota


  • Turn the Dakota's ignition on. Find the "Time" button on the top part of the radio control panel.

How do I set my clock?


If you have the Owner's Manual there will be specific instructions incorporated in it. Most North American Market vehicles are set in similar manners. Usually the Radio MUST BE TURNED OFF to set the Clock. There are usually two buttons one for the Hour and one for the minutes. With the Radio OFF push the Hour button and hold it until the correct hour is displayed. Then Press and hold the Minute button until the correct minute is displayed. Release the buttons immediately when the correct value is displayed. If this information is not sufficient, please contact you local BMW Dealers service department.

Trying to set time after battery died, not shown in manuel correctly


Usually on older AC-Delco/Remy Radio, press the "set" button and it will take you back to the radio station frequency, then push the left knob inward, then it will take you back to the time again. Before the "set" mode ceases, use the seek and scan buttons to change the minute and hour for the time, until you get to the time you want.


Other models will have the "set" button being a small almost hidden button, you can use a paper clip pin end to depress. Which will initiate the "set" mode, then you can push in the left or right knobs and the time mode will come on. Then using seek rocker switch or the seek and scan buttons the time minutes and hours will start to change.


The last type is where you have to either hold down the set button then use the seek and scan buttons or you have to hold down the set button for about 4 seconds then the clock will go into a blinking or set display mode, for which you can use either the knobs or the seek and scan buttons to produce minute and hour change display on your clock.



Try these methods. I know on older GM vehicles with AC Delco/Remy type radios/stereos, usually there is a "set" button for setting your favorite radio stations to instant numbered buttons, usually up to four or five of them. This same "set" button can be used to set the time. But when you hit the "set" button it will take you to the radio station frequency, not the time. That is when you press in the left knob or sometimes the right knob, and the time display will come on, while it is still in the set mode. Then you can press on the seek and scan buttons, one of them will change your minutes the other one will change your hours, for your clock display time. When you reach the correct time you desire, then hit the "set" button again, which will turn off the set mode. Your clock should start working normally, starting from the time you've set

There are three buttons, let's call them 1, 2, and 3, from left to right.


Clock

With the clock in the time readout mode, keep
button (2) depressed for 4 seconds -12 AM, PM
or 24.00 flashing. After pushing button (1), either
a 12-hour (AM + PM) or a 24-hour setting
program can be selected. If you only want to
change the display mode, push button (3). The
clock then returns to its normal timekeeping
function.

B. Hours
Push button (2) a second time - hour display
flashes. Set hour by pushing button (1). After
pushing button (3)*, the clock returns to the time
readout mode with new hour setting.

C. Minutes
Push button (2) once more - minute display
flashes. Set minute by pushing button (1). Upon
pushing button (3)*, the clock is started -
accurate to within 1 second.

Stop watch function
The stop watch can only be set in motion if the
clock is in its normal timekeeping mode and not
during setting operations.
A. Push button (3) - 00:00 display appears;
B. Push button (1) - stop watch is on;
C. Push button (1) a second time - watch stops.
(Additional times can be added by pushing button
(1) again - stop watch keeps running. Push button
(1) once more to stop timing.)

If button (3) is pushed during operation A and

(push button (2)). icon_biggrin.gif
