How do I set the alarm on my Nelsonic NLC690 alarm clock radio to 94.9 the bull?

Set the radio so you can hear 94.9. Set the Alarm Time, set wake by radio as opposed to alarm.

General info on that type here


And a basic more modern one like yours. You can get yours from Walmart, so you could go in and ask for a photocopy of the instructions.

On the RF Hi Lo switch do you have power? Is the switch ok? That switch regulates the TX power and if it is open, you have none.

How do I set the alarm?

On what exactly? If you're talking about a general standard clock radio, there will be an alarm button, which you hold down whilst pressing the hour and minute button to set the time. For "setting" the alarm, generally there's a switch on the side.

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 bought an 2 ch. amp and a sub for this car. I'm nearly finished the hook up but only one is stumping me. Where is the remote turn-on wire or what color is it?

remote is generally blue out of the deck however if it is stock radio wire the amp remote to the accessory circuit on the back of sterio this will turn on the amp when your radio comes on instead of the radio turning on the amp there should be a memory wire that is hot all the time and a accessory wire that turns on the radio when the key is on

JVC KD-R312 CD player keeps resetting itself whenever the ignition is turned off. The radio stations are ok, but mybass, treble, loudness etc always resets itself. Is annoying because i ahve to go through...

You are losing the permenant 12VDC on the Radio. This is the thick yellow wire from the radio loom, it has to be connected all the time to 12VDC.

If you have 2 wires that are the same color and one of them has a black stripe down it, those are speaker wires. I.E. if you have 2 greens , one with a black stripe, that goes to one speaker. You'll have to play with them to know which is which. I have moved the radio settings to front right speaker, then kept changing the wires from the car out until the car's front right is on, take note of the speakers that come on in the car while you are trying to find the right one so when you are ready to hook it up you know where to go. Yellow goes to constant power, even when the car is off, and key out, thats why you don't have to reset the clock every time you start it up. Red generally goes to power when the key is in the on position. Blue is for remote operation, like turning an amp on or off, so it doesn't run while the radio isn't on. I don't recall any others off hand that are critical, but do consider this, if you have a newer vehicle with factory radio, it might need a conversion module in order for it to work. Generally you can tell if the radio has a volume adjustment for speed, e.g- it gets louder as you go faster and softer when you come to a stop, you will need one. You could hard wire it in without the module but the radio plays a role in the horn and chime operation, if you dont get the module you will pay for it, me. Also, if you get it all wired in and nothing is going on, plug in the antenna, that serves as the series ground, hope this helped.

Don't know why this was classified under Radio Scanners, it sounds like it's an automobile question.

2-high will be best on gas by far as the engine no longer has to drive a transfer case to get torque to the other 2 wheels.

4-high will be next in line and should only be used on slippery surfaces (ie: snow, dirt roads)

4-low will probably only get you up to 30 mph since it has an entirely different gear ratio. Most people hardly ever use 4-low except when pulling stumps in the back yard.

For general use, stick with 2-high. Best fuel economy and performance.
