How to Change the Clock in a Honda Civic


The Honda Civic has a long and storied history dating back to 1972. With so many models, it would be difficult to describe changing the clock for each. The seventh and eighth generation of the Honda Civic have radio-integrated clocks, as do most other modern vehicles. Because this clock is built into your radio, the clock can be set using the radio controls. You may need to change your clock for daylight saving time, or if your battery has been replaced (this often resets the radio).

Setting the Clock in the Seventh-Generation Civic (2001 to 2005)

Step 1

Insert your key and turn it to ignition position one (accessory mode).

Step 2

Press and hold the button labeled “Scan/Rpt.” While holding the button, press and hold “Preset 4” to advance the hour display. Release both buttons when the correct hour appears.
