Dial Clock

Of all things to ask a question about, I'm embarrased by this one. I should be asking about an upcoming regear/axle swap/soa, but no, I'm asking about the dang clock.

Be that as it may, my clock doesn't work. Never has (since I bought it 1500 miles ago or so). Anything I can do? Does the clock just have a cheap AA clock motor on the back, or is it connected to the main battery? If its connected to the battery I can't think of a reason it wouldn't be running since my charge is fine.

When I say it doesn't work, I mean nothing at all, Jeep on or off. No movement of second hand on up. Its a small thing, but I'd like it to work.

That's a chronic problem for Jeepers, is having a Dial Clock that actually works. Fortunately there is a guy in CA at <a href="http://www.autoclock.com" target="_blank">www.autoclock.com</a> that will rebuild any auto clock with a quartz movement! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="wink.gif" />

No batteries, it's wired in. I had the same problem, bought the Jeep and no clock. After getting out the magnifying glass and tracing the wiring diagrams in both the Haynes and Chiltons repair books I finally figured out the wiring and got it working. It's a real pain to follow the diagrams, but with a little patience and time you can trace the problem to it's source. What really made it hard was the a**h*le who owned it before me owned a pair or wire cutters and didn't know how to install a stereo.

Just my $.02. You can double check the fuses. In my '90 YJ I found the fuse that is labeled "clock" and it was blown in an inconspicuous way. I really had to look but less than a buck later and I'm not late as much as I was before! I do have a 4 cylinder though, so you can figure that I'm still never on time.
