Hello.

I recently replaced the light bulbs for the A/C indicators (below my CD
player). This involved removing the panel cover, the radio, and the A/C
controls. I managed to do this OK, but when I put everything back together,
the clock stopped working.

I took everything back apart and checked for any loose wires that I may have
inadvertantly knocked loose while replacing the bulbs, but I didn't see any.
All other devices on that circuit seem to work perfectly, but I checked the
fuses anyway. Both fuses associated with the clock (the panel fuse and the
one under the hood) were fine - I tested them with a multimeter. I even
tried disconnecting the battery for a few minutes, hoping that the clock
would reset after reconnecting it.

I'm at a loss here - it's not the fuse, and there don't seem to be any loose
connections. I know the clock worked before. Does anyone have any
suggestions?

Thanks,

John

Either it was just the clock's time to go, and you kinda 'nudged' it a
little, or a wire snapped internally, either in the insulation or, more
likely, at the ckt board inside the clock. Time to go junkyard diving, see
if you can find one you verify works and try it. Shouldn't be more than
$12...

Does your Cigarette lighter / DC plug work? Once my clock and the DC
plug stoped working. I replaced the fuse for the Cigarette lighter /
DC plug and the clock started working again.

Hello.

I have not actually checked the lighter or DC plug, because I don't have a
lighter (I bought the car used and it didn't come with one - since I never
need a lighter, I haven't bothered to replace it). I know other things on
that same circuit work (I checked the manual to find what circuit the clock
is on, and noticed several other things on that circuit were all working). I
physically checked both fuses with a meter - they were fine.
