I am having difficulty setting the radio clock in a 2005…

I am having difficulty setting...
I am having difficulty setting the radio clock in a 2005 Acura EL (1.7L). My understanding is the 'Repeat' button must be held down simultaneously with the '4' and '5' buttons respectively in order to set the 'hours' and 'minutes'.
Is this done with the ignition 'ON' and radio 'OFF'?
At times I notice the clock display is flashing. Is this when I do the clock adjustment?
Thank you.

sorry for the delay

Press and hold the CLOCK button.

Change the hours by pressing the H (Preset 4) button until the numbers advance to the desired time.

Change the minutes by pressing the M (Preset 5) button until the numbers advance to the desired time.

What Customers are Saying:

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Thank you very much for saving my daughter and her family a lot of money on her Honda. You are definitely on my list for future help. Thanks, again.

FredUSA

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK
