Thanks Eric,
What is the procedure for doing that
Expert:  Gary replied 12 months ago.

Hi Greg,

Should be straight forward without a schematic if you have a digital volt meter.

Generally 4 wires for a clock: battery, accessory feed, parklight dimming circuit and ground.

Place negative lead of meter to ground, looking for 12v, probe each wire with key off will find the battery wire. Probe the other wires until you find the one that goes live when you turn the key on. Keep that lead on that wire and look gor the ground wire with the negative lead. You should read the same 12v from the accessory wire to body ground , as you read from the accessory wire to the ground wire.

Hope this helps.
