ok, im not 100% sure but from top of my head i think u hold down the 'clock' button until it starts flashing and then u press those numbered buttons
1
10
100
1000
each to change a different digit, xx:xx! 23.04, each one of those would change one of these!

hope this somehow helped lol

I have the same problem, except i don't have the aftermarket alarm, I try to hold the set button down, but after a while it just shows a bunch of random figures on the screen, i have an 7-button and I can't change the clock or the date, any thoughts? also, can i switch it to an 11-button? will it work?

push and hold "clock" until it says "input time". to switch between am/pm hit the "1000" key until you are at the right hour. use the 1, 10, and 100 keys to enter in the right time, the hit "set". clock should be set.

yeah hold down clock, not set to begin with, that confused me when I first got my car and had to disconnect the battery.

Yes the key is to hold the "clock" button until something happends. Then push the "100" button once, then the "set/res" button. When fall comes, do the same 'cept push "100" 23 times. Enjoy!!

With a 7-button OBC, you hold down the date/hr (or something like that) button for 5 seconds until the : starts flashing, and then use the min/hr buttons to adjust the minutes and hours. If it has been reset, you start with the date, so you set the month/day first. Press the Set button to set the date or clock. Pressing the C/F button while changing the clock will change the time format from 24hr to am/pm. Hope that helps.

yeah that helped alot. thanks man. i have the 7 button obc, so its a little different, which i could switch to the 11. i really just want to have the system check on my car, so i can know everythings operating fine.

i didn't mean to say aftermarket alarm either, i meant to say aftermarket stereo.
