How to Set the Clock on a 2003 Civic

by Megan Mattingly-Arthur

Setting the clock in a 2003 Honda Civic without an instruction manual can seem like an impossible task. The absence of clearly marked clock-setting buttons makes searching for the correct button combination feel a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack. Luckily, once you know which buttons on the dashboard audio panel are used in the clock-setting process, setting the clock to the correct time takes just seconds.

Turn the ignition in your Honda Civic so that the digital clock displays on the dashboard audio panel.

Press and hold the "Scan/Rpt" button while setting the hours and minutes place digits on your vehicle clock.

Press and hold the fourth radio preset button adjust the clock's hours place digits. Release the button when the appropriate number value is displayed.

Press and hold the fifth radio preset button to set the minutes place digits on your Honda Civic vehicle clock. Release the button when the minutes place digits reflect the current time.

Release the "Scan/Rpt" button to complete the clock-setting process.

Tip

  • Try releasing the radio preset buttons a couple of numbers early. This helps you avoid going past the desired number value.

Warning

  • The time cannot be set unless the digital clock is displayed on the dashboard audio panel.
