Customer reply replied 9 years ago
yes it dose have a cd player

Ok. Under the lower knob, there is 2 small buttons. The left is the hour and the right is the min. Use those buttons to change the time. You need to hold the hour for a moment to start the change.

I well just pay you and take it in to the deale and pay them to set the time for me! thanks for trying to help me!
According to the manual, those lower right buttons will change the time. Did you try with the radio on? After this I am out if ideas. All the other radios have dedicated buttons on the lower left side to change the time. Let me know. If not, I will opt out and hopefully another expert can figure this out. Please let me know,.

please do not refund my monny you tryed to help I well just take the va to the dealer and mayby thay can show me how to do it! just keep the monny you tryed!

John

Very well John. I will leave you with this. Below is a bit from the repair section of the manual rather than the owners section. If you have any other questions, please ask as I owe you and answer.

Press and hold the UP or DOWN arrow button until an audible beep indicates the time set mode has been entered. Once the beep is heard, the time can be set by tapping the up button to increment the hour and the down arrow to increment the minute.
