I would check the wires for the clock where they enter the connectors and look for one that has pulled free from the connector block. So tug on those wires looking for a loose one. Then check pins on the male connector for the unlikely chance that a pin has folded over or is missing.

You lost the 12 volts at pin 8 R-W wire.

The clock should display time even with no key in ignition.

Well, couldn't find anything wrong with the connector so, I bypassed the problem by cutting to white/red wire and supplying it with the 12v source from the radio...

To DarthSid,

May I ask you an other favour?
Can you tell me wich wire on the climate control has the vehicule speed pulse?
My new head unit tells me it must be connected for accurate navigation calculation...

Thanks!

SCYUL, please refer to the attachments. The SPD sensor color code wire is White/Red (W-R) on PIN # 4 from the Multi-Display. There is also a junction block and wire harness connector at the bottom of the diagram with the same W-R wires. Refer to file Clock_SC430_SPD1

For the second diagram (Navigation ECU) the W-R wire is located on PIN # 5.

Refer to file Clock_SC430_SPD2


Please let me know if this helps.
