Hi All,

Wonder if anyone can help..

When we initially get in our Cmax and turn the radion on, the time is wrong..

After a short while it corrects itself, probably by using the RDS data system.

But it does not 'save' the correct time as next time we use the car, the same happens again, wrong time which soon corrects itself..

The radio is a standard Ford fit, which has a single CD.

I have tried looking through the menu's but can't find anything.

Anyone know how to correct it ?

Thanks

Press and hold the menu button, the press menu repeatedly until you get clk-auto or clk-man. Make sure it's set to clk-man then press menu again and clk-set should come up. Use the seek buttons to adjust.
Hope that makes sence.

Can't help, I'm afraid but FWIW we had exactly the same problem with our 08 Focus. Seemed worse in cold weather. Reported it to dealers on service but they were unable to replicate the fault so we just had to live with it.

Hi Andy

We have the exact same fault and have tried everything to fix it but have now given up on it [img]smileys/smiley7.gif[/img]

I will keep an eye on this thread though just in case something new turns up

I think Spud may have the answer, mine must be set at manual as I always have to correct it manually but that's no great deal. I didn't know you could set it to automatic but seeing what you guys are having problems with I will leave it on manual.

Had the same problem with my clock . Changed the RDS setting to off and set clock manually but still the clock would reset to zero. Found in the end if the radio is turned on without the ignition turned on the clock would always reset. Set the time again with the RDS off clock and not putting the radio on before starting the engine the clock has not reset now for 3 months

Interesting, I wonder if its the dip in voltage as the starter draws a large current from the battery on starting the engine? You would think there should be some sort of battery or capacitor to stop this happening.
