Make it display date, then press "set" for several seconds until it responds (either a beep or flashing numbers). Use "+" or "-" to adjust.jparrish said:I have a Saab 9 3. We changed the battery and afterward the date reset. I was able to set the time, but I can't figure out how to set the date. Any help would be great! Thanks!
I have a 1999 model and I don't have a set button, it looks like this guy's photo:what year is your car?
on my 2001 there is a screen that has the temperature and date. on that screen i hold set for a few seconds, there's a beeb, and the year begins to blink. using the buttons with a + or - sign (depending if you need to go up or down, it's almost always up on year) adjust the year, then hit set once, the month blinks, choose the month, hit set the day blinks, set the day. hit set again and you should be done.
I dunno if it's the original manual, but it also refers to a set button that's not there (maybe it's on the old stereo unit somewhere?). I dare say jparrish is experiencing the same problem. One could set the date, but it would involve holding down the + button until it fast-forwards through every hour from Dec 31.If you still have all the original owners manuals, everything you're looking for will be in there as well.
