Default Setting the clock?

Of all things on this Bonne, one thing has me confused... how the heck do you set the clock in the radio?!?! LOL... Of all the VCR'*, cars, and computers I've worked on, this is the only clock I can't figure out!

My Bonne has the premium sound system, with the tape deck and 5 band equalizer (and an amp that doesn't seem to work...), along with the steering wheel controls.. can anyone help me out?

'set' 'seek' for the hour & 'scan' for the minutes, or the other way around, ..., whatever, something like that.

I've tried that many times, and it doesn't work... I can't figure this one out... I've tried almost every button combo to try to set it..

Did you make sure the radio is turned off? It has to be turned off. Then push set, and use seek and scan.

It should work by pressing the set button when the power is 'off'. You should see the word 'set' appear in the corner of the display. It only gives you a moment, or it will turn off if you do not hit the seek or scan keys.

If that doesn't work, wait until noon and pull the + battery cable.

I like part 2 of this plan!
