Hi. Ive had my 89 dakota for about 3 months now and I still can not figure out how to set my clock. The owners manual was not with the truck when i bought it. Ive tried just about everything. Does anyone know how to set it?
Thanks
Joy

Don't know for sure aboput 99, but on my 2001, with the infinity Cd, etc., the face plate has two little indented buttons, H, and M, You push a ballpoint pen, or something such as that on each button to set it. As I said though, don't know about the 99's, if it's the same or not.

Wouldn't that be too easy? :)
I know that on some vehicles I've had to hold the set button in and then when it starts blinking use one of the knobs to adjust the hours and minutes.

Thanks everyone for your help.
Spt: thanks for taking the time to write all of that out. It was the Chrysler Infinity one that i needed...The damn thing still took me 10 minutes to set even with directions but i guess you just have to be smarter than the clock lol
Ok thanks again

No problem, I know what you mean I hate setting having to set my clock. Would it have been so hard to put a set clock button in?

seriously... just a little button that controls the clock would be great. but they like to make me look stupid i guess. :)
I just got to thinking today though that i could have pulled off a battery cable at 12:00 and put it back on then my clock would be set... but that never crossed my mind until about an hour ago. oh well
Do they sell owners manuals for my truck still or am i up sh!t creek when i have another problem?

Hey Joy, I do not think they still sell the manuals. You could try contacting some wreckers in your area they sometime have old manuals. I check this site often so if need some info from the manual, post it and I will get back to you. A Haynes repair manual is handy to.
