How to Set the Clock on a 2001 Honda Civic

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

Setting the clock in your car can be a hassle. Complicating matters is the fact that each manufacturer seems to have a different clock setting procedure. If you need to adjust the clock in your Civic because of daylight savings time or because the battery was disconnected, you can do so with the touch of a few buttons. The 2001 Civic clock came with either a cassette player or a CD player; the clock setting procedure is the same with both radios.

Step 1

Start your engine, or turn your key to Accessory mode (notch two on your ignition) to turn your radio on.

Step 2

Press and hold the Clock button ("Scan/Rpt"). While holding the button, press Preset four to change the hour. Release the Clock button when the correct hour appears.

Step 3

Press and hold Clock again. While holding the button, press Preset five to change the minute. Release the button when the correct minute appears.
