every time I shut off the tahoe radio clock go's to 1:00

MY 96 tahoe has a clock in the radio. Every time I shut the truck off the time goes to the default setting of 1:00. The programmed radio stations stay however. Can any help or have the similar problems?

If it keeps the radio presets, it could be a problem with the radio. OR a loose battery connection, Also check the battery volts to see if it is low or not.

My '99 Dodge will remember the radio presets if I disconnect the battery, but the clock is lost. It may be a bad connection to the always hot circuit. You might see what other circuits are always hot and see if they stop working with the key off.

Sounds like a blown fuse.

I agree, the fuse is always the first thing to check. Since I'm not familiar with your particular vehicle, I can tell you that I had the same problem in an older GM. Turned out to be the circuit to the cigarette lighter (that apparently maintained the radio's memory also). Missed it at first then I checked all the fuses.

Good starting point. A radio has two power feeds to it. One that is always hot to keep memory intact and another to power the radio when it is on. If the constant referance voltage is lost, radio will turn on okay to play and set clock but time will be lost when it is turned off. ----------------- TheSnoMan.com
