2002 Forester Clock- same problem as everyone else... goes on/off, now it won't work. Did they ever do a recall on this?

My 99 forester clock went out too.

It's a very simple fix with a soldering iron. No need to go out an buy anything.

I'm assuming your's is the same. If you remove the clock (use a small screwdriver - there are two tabs that you need to undo), then unplug it.

Remove the clock from the plastic front (I actually broke one of the tabs doing this so be careful). On the back of the electronics, you will see several small rectangular pieces with numbers on them. Look for the one that has 510. Part of it is partially under the display and seems difficult to reach. This is a resister and it has lost it's connection to the board.

Just resolder to the board it it'll take care of it!
