I just set mine during lunch.

There should be a button to the right of the LED screen with a tiny clock on it. Press this button and then the hour should begin to flash. Use the channel adjustment knob to change the hour, then push the clock button again and the minutes will flash. Do the same here.

If you are lucky, your local radio stations may be broadcasting the time for you. If you are REALLY lucky, they might be broadcasting the CORRECT time (I've yet to find a station that is more accurate than 5 minutes in metro Detroit). To use this feature, tune into an FM station that broadcasts RDS (station identification, etc.), press the clock button once and the hour starts to flash. Then press and hold the clock button for 3 seconds or so. The display will either show UPDATED or NO UPDATE. If you get NO UPDATE, wait 5 minutes or so and try again. If NO UPDATE continues, try another station.

I realize now that the OP has a 2005, and I have a 2008. So, the button could be anything as far as I know. On mine (US) it is a clock symbol. But, then again, my owner's manual says the ENTER button should read "ENTER," while on mine it is a return arrow symbol. Go figure....

If all else fails, pull out that owner's manual. That's what I had to do. :)

My radio is a 2008. I ordered it. There are two part numbers for the radios (all years).
One is Candian and the other is US. The only difference is the text versus symbols
on the radio. It also only affects a couple of the buttons.

Canadian part number has symbols. US has it spelled out.
This is my 2008 after install.


But my 05 radio was the same except no Aux plug and no chrome accents on the knobs.
I have since swapped out the knobs so my radio is an 08 with 05 nonchrome knobs. lol

But it isnt a toss up. You hvae the sybol'd radio or you dont. Either way they are the same.
