How to set clock on radio

I know this is a dumb question. But my husband and I have messed around with the radio trying to figure out how to set the clock on our Durango's radio. The instruction manual states to use the "time" button, but our radio doesn't have a "time" button on it. The picture shown in the owner's manual isn't the one we have in the Durango. We bought it used, it's an '05 Dodge Durango, Limited, without the Sirius radio, but does have navigation. It is the original radio, just not the one shown in the book. Anyone have any help? Thanks so much!

Welcome to DT!

The Nav unit should set the time automatically!
You need to go into the settings menu to say GPS time or manual set time.
I have mine set to GPS...

Here's a pic of my radio

Not sure if it matters, but we never did get the Nav. CD with the Durango. I tried to click into the Nav part, and pressed "set" but it wouldn't let me do anything.

Thank you~M

i know with the radio ram man and myself have you turn the knob on the right to get to the right time and push to go to the hr or mins and then time again to set it... you try calling dealer to see if they can help you over the phone. dang what a dumb question to ask but hey never hurts to try them!

I have the same one but with the Nav DVD, The clock is set by pressing NAV - then enter when prompted - CLOCK SETTING.


Or just unplug the head unit for an hour or so and plug it back in at exactly 12:00 AM

Ebay has NAV DVDs for sale.

That is a problem! Make sure you get a OEM NAV DVD!
