So I can't figure it out and I have looked in the manual. How do you set the clock in a 99 PS 250V. Its the analog clock. There is a clock switch but it doesnt seem to do anything. Maybe my switch is broken?

Let me know if you know how to do it.

Put Mickey's short arm and hand on the Hour and the long arm and hand on the Minute and wind his tail real tight! :eek:

:wavey: Just joking, you got me?

or, disconnect the battery until the time is right, and then connect the batt again....naw that will never work.....

I have a clock button on my dash to the right of the steering column, right next to the speedo adjustment buttons. Hold it down and clock should rotate.

Take the clock out and put you a depth finder in its place. Would much rather know how deep the water is than what time it was. Your radio should have a clock on it. Besides, a watch is cheaper than than a new prop!! :D

Why do you need a clock? Anytime your in the boat, it is always MasterCraft time!

Put a keg of Miller under the dash, remove the clock and run a hose from the keg thru the hole to the drivers seat, then it's always MillerCraft Time!

I have these buttons on my clock too, but when I hold down the "clock" button...nothing happens. Any ideas? I'll admit that I like the idea of replacing the clock with a keg tap....but I'm not sure this will go over well with the wife :-)

Thanks,

Kent

Come on Shepherd, I expected you to know! How hard can this be to set an analog clock......I would like to help but my boat doesn't have an analog clock...



Same problem here. My clock button doesn't do anything either. My clock is always an hour ahead (NC time). I haven't tried to diagnose it yet though, I just subtract an hour... :cool:

Just kidding, I hate these problems that should be simple, but instead no one can figure it out! The problem on this thread should be obvious to anyone! Sounds like a design problem

Just too lazy to figure it out. All I know is that the "clock" button does nothing.
I guess I could just break the glass and do it by hand :rant:

Just bust the glass out and put it to the correct time!
Problem solved:rolleyes:

well..on mine I pulled the switch out and found thr wires to be loose. Once I shook the wires a bit....I could set the clock. Check th backside of the switch and just push it out from the back if you need to inspect the connections.

best of luck

Mine is doing the same thing. I am going to check the connections today!

FYI - I pulled out the switches from the dash for the clock and reseated the wiring connections...now everything works fine. The wires are pretty loose back there, and seem to shake loose over time.

are you fellas sure you are holding the clock button up or down long enough? It does take a second or so to get started iirc

My clock will not set either. I have held the button down numerous times for lengthy periods and it doesn't move.

I did the same thing this afternoon, since this post reminded me to check out the clock and sure enough a little jiggle and wala it now is set to the proper time.
