by Megan Mattingly-Arthur

Manufactured by Chrysler, the Dodge Grand Caravan is the long-wheelbase model of the original Dodge Caravan. As of 2010, the Dodge Grand Caravan has been in continuous production since 1987. In addition to many other features, all Dodge Grand Caravan models feature a digital clock on the minivan's dashboard audio panel. The 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan features two small depressed buttons that are used to set the clock.

Insert your key into the ignition of your 2000 Dodge Grand Caravan minivan and turn the ignition switch to the "Accessory" position.

Examine the dashboard audio systems panel in your minivan and find the clock-setting buttons. Look for two small holes to the right of the digital display; these holes will be labeled "H" and "M."

Insert a pointed object, such as a toothpick or ballpoint pen, into the small hole labeled "H." Use the pointed object to press the depressed "H" button until the correct hour is displayed.

Insert your pointed object into the hole labeled "M." Press the depressed "M" button with the tip of your pointed object until the correct minute is displayed.
