Yes it is compatible. The only difference could be in the "clock position", that is if the wiring plug is not in the same position as your current alternator. If that is a problem, the bolts can be removed and the case halves rotated into the correct position. If you must separate the case halves, you will have to push the brushes back into their holder and insert a thin rod(a heavy paper clip will do) to keep them retracted in order to put the halves back together again. Don't forget to pull the paper clip out after reassembly.
I am not familiar with Mondeos, but usually analog clock works all the time.... no matter if ignition is on and off..... ignition usually just turn on and off backlight of clock.... so I would check for fuse or some loose connection leading to clock..... check if you have power for that clock with ampermeter
most clocks have the : blinking to show that the clock is working and not in set mode. clocks work of a crystal in the system so that the frequency is set . some clocks have a external device to make small adjustments to clock accuracy. If this is a clock in a vehicle have the voltage to the clock checked as any variation to 12.5 volts will affect the operation of the clock. Any dirty, corroded, loose connections will create a resistance to the current and lower the voltage.
You may need an adapter to allow the unit to be compatible with your vehicle. Go to a local audio installation center and ask for info regarding this problem. They should be able to assist you. More of the newer audio units aren't really designed for older model vehicles so retro fit wiring and adapters are usually needed.
It sounds pretty obvious that it is losing battery power. That is about the only thing that will cause your clock to reset itself. I would be taking a HARD look at the battery cables and connections. By this I mean to do some actual circuit testing like performing voltage drop tests.
Also, since your vehicle is an OBD compatible vehicle (which means it is capable of self-diagnosis), it would also be a really good idea to perform a FULL computer network scan to see if there are any clues there.
By "FULL" I mean scan ALL the modules and check the data - NOT just hook up a generic code reader and try to pull codes. If the PCM is losing power you will not get any generic OBD fault codes from a code reader. However one of the other modules will most likely report communications faults with the PCM. Cheap generic OBD code readers cannot perform these functions.
If it is not the fuse then it is most likely an internal issue with the clock itself. These clocks (and many other models) commonly burn out internally. I offer a very cost effective repair solution. Check it out! www.autoclockrepair.com

I hope you used an adapter to plug into the factory wires .... and if all your connections are correct ... I would verify that you have a good ground (touch a wire from a good clean bare metal directly to the radio's metal case) .... and check fuses .... Radio and clock fuses .... certain expeditions have amplifiers and subwoofers built into them and may not be compatible with your radio .... need more info
I offer a repair service for the clock itself; far cheaper than buying a new clock. Check it out at www.autoclockrepair.com I'll look into how to remove the clock itself and post if I find the solution.
