    Hey fellas,

    wondering if you have ever run into this or know anything about it

    Every time (recently, since my battery died and got it jumped) I turn my truck on, the clock has reset itself back to 1:00, like the battery was dead, even though it wasn't. My gauge says the battery has over 13V....

    You guys know what the problem might be?

    Cheers

    Sounds to me like the constant power to the clock is being interupted when the key is off.

    If you can figure out how to get to the clock power "without too much trouble" it would be easy to check.

    so i found the clock section, but I don't really know what that means...

    I don't understand how to read the blueprints

    where is the actual connections and relays and fuses for the clock in the truck?

    Check all your fuses. When you jumped it, it might have blown somehow. GL

    No, if you blow a fuse, the clock wouldn't work at all.

    I still would atleast check the fuses, it will take you all of 5 min. We had a Chevy conversion van that would reset the radio everytime we turned it off. Come to find out it was a fuse. GL

    It may be early signs of an alternator crapping out...

    Here's another tip....don't let the lobster sit too long on your counter-top or 2 things will happen. 1) Someone will come by and eat it. 2) It will go bad and therefore you won't be able to enjoy it.

    Not sure if people care or not, but if anyone ever searches and needs an answer...

    I took off my battery terminals, cleaned and tightened them, took a peek at all my fuses (none were popped)
    Problem solved. Little perplexed, but it looked like, with a soft/weak connection of battery, the clocked wanted to reset every time

    I realize this is an OLD thread...but it came up when I searched "Clock Reset 1:00". It DID turn out to be the dome light fuse that looked okay at first glance. When I checked very carefully...it was blown. Replaced it and the dome lights work and the clock memory holds.
