How to Set the Clock in a 2004 GMC

by Leonardo R. Grabkowski

All 2004 GMC vehicles, including the Sierra, Sonoma, Safari, Envoy and Canyon, come with a digital clock. On all models, this clock is built into the GMC's radio. Because GMC trucks, vans and SUVs use similar audio equipment, the process of setting the clock in a 2004 GMC is similar between vehicles. Some Safari models may not have a "Set" button. For these models, revert to the "All Other" clock-setting instructions.

Setting the Clock on the 2004 GMC Safari

Tap the "Set" button on the radio. Push and hold the "Left Seek" button within five seconds. As you're holding the button, the hour changes.

Let go of the "Left Seek" button when the hour displays correctly.

Push and hold the "Right Seek" button. This changes the minute. Release it when the minute shows the correct time.

Setting the Clock on the 2004 GMC Sierra

Push and hold the "HR" or "H" button, depending on which radio your Sierra has, for two seconds. This brings you to the clock setting mode.

Tap the "HR" or "H" button to adjust the hour.

Push and hold the "MN" or "M" button, depending on which radio your Sierra has, for two seconds.

Tap the "MN" or "M" button to adjust the minute display.

Setting the Clock in All Other 2004 GMC Vehicles

Push and hold the "HR" or "H" button, depending on which radio your GMC has. As you hold the button, the hour changes.

Release the "HR" or "H" button when the hour shows the correct time.

Push and hold "MN" or "M" to set the minute.
