Setting Clock and Temperature

I read the manual and it says to set the clock you press CLK and then SET but it doesnt tell me how to change the hour up or down. I figured this out before but im not sure now and I need to change t as the battery was removed. Also the temperature wont change from F to C. Again the manual says to hold AMB for 2 seconds and it does nothing no matter how long I hold it.

Any help appreciated

Hold 'Clock' - clock display starts to cycle thru options, 'set' to adjust.

Touch 'Amb', temp appears, hold and temp cycles *F/*C.

Ignition on, radio off.

Radio was not off. that might be why it didnt work for the temp.
When im doing the clock, I hold Clock and it says 12 hr --- 24 hr. I press set and then the hour space flashes but nothing will make it go up or down. The set button does nothing and the clock button moves the flashing area to the minute space

The clock button chages what you changing hour/min it does not change the time up or down
also with regards to the temp. It is always showing I dont need to press AMB to see it like Stealthtl implied. ??

If the Clock button scrolls through the settings then it is the Set button that advances the settings.

If you keep pushing and pushing and it's not responding, then it's probably not working properly or it's broken.

I've disconnected my battery ~15 times in the past 3 weeks. Reset my clock without fail every time. Hold Clock to get it in the set 12/24, tap Set to move to 12hr, tap clock to move to the hour, tap set to get to the right hour, tap clock to move to the minute, tap set to get it to the right minute, tap clock to back out of it.

Try this to set the clock.

I couldn't get mine to change for a whole year. I decided to just keep trying and I discovered that you press "clk" until it blinks and then press "set" as far in as you can, push long and hard;-)! This is what finally got mine to moving! Hope it works!
