i have a 90 loyale with an in dash electronic clock that is on but doesn't keep correct time. does anyone know where i might be able to pick one up and would it be difficult to change out? keep in mind i am not what you would call mechanically inclined. thanks.
Check out the "similar threads" listed at the bottom of this page. Basically, the resistors in the clock circuit board get crispy. They can and have been repaired by some people, but I've so far failed to find the right resistor for mine.
Removal and reinstallation is fairly simple.
1. Using a trim removal tool or thin flat blade screwdriver, gently pry the clock at the outside edge of its black border. The whole clock will pop out - sort of.
2. The wire behind the clock is four inches long, and can be disconnected at that point. To disconnect, open your glove box, pinch the glove box retainer inward toward the middle to cause the box to drop all the way down and out of your way. Stick a flashlite beam up in there, and you'll see the white connector for the clock. Disconnect, and the clock is out.
3. Go to junkyard, find old subie, remove clock, and see if the junkyard will take it back if it doesn't work. Or sell it to you real cheap.
Install and see if it works. If it doesn't, feel free to send it to me. I still need a resistor out of it.
