Clock no worky

Post by tbeiler » Wed Jun 11, 2014 8:06 pm

86 Aspy with quartz clock, unfortunately the clock doesn't work. The backlight comes on when the ignition switch is on, but no LED's showing. I checked the fuses in the LH pocket, both the 3 amp and the 10 amp and both are good. Anyone know how to remove the clock portion, the radio portion is easily removed. I would like to get it repaired if possible, has anyone ever had to do this. Thanks in advance. :idea:

Not positive but I think the back light is separate from the clock.It should have its own power and ignition.....Ill look at a schematic ASAP.

Remove radio, remove speakers, remove instrument cluster enclosure, unplug the clock that will come off with the enclosure, should be a a pair of retainers that hold the clock in. This is just from memory and it has been a while since I did one, but the only part I am not sure of is how the clock mounts to the enclosure.

P.S. What I am calling the enclosure is the black plastic part that goes around the instrument cluster.
