04 FXT clock illuminated?

Post by ElZorro » Mon Jan 16, 2012 7:40 pm

Ok, 04/05 FXT owners, can you confirm that the clock on the dash (below the little hatch) is illuminated? I think mine was, and I know its not now. Looking through my Haynes the only reference I find is the 'clock' entry in the wiring harness but it appears to be a single connector with no indication of bulb.

Thanks!

Is this an LED clock at the top, center of the dash (like in the Imprezas)? If so, I had mine go out randomly. It seemed to keep the time, mostly, but sometimes it would not illuminate. I think I had a thread somewhere around here about it. Basically, a resistor on the circuit board has a weak connection and over time becomes cracked. You should be able to take it out and put a dab of solder on it. If this is the same issue, that is.

Sorry I'm so late, yes, the little digital clock on the console does appear to be illuminated on mine and can be seen at night.
I couldn't tell you about the wiring however.

I'm surprised Jason didn't remember this thread.
Maybe his days of meeting young men in the parking lot where he can pop it out for a quickie are behind him?
