How do you set the clock in a 1998 Dodge Neon We just purchased the car and it didn't come with a book?
Answer . The first thing you need to do is purchase an owners manual, which you will need to know the maintenance schedule. Salvage yard, dealer, Ebay, and many on-line sites are sources. Someone else may be able to tell you how to set the clock.
Bad starter can cause electrical failure . If the starter has a direct ground short, it is possible that many electrical accessories/electrical components will act like they have hardly any power or not come on at all.\nFastest way to find out, by jumping the two big screws on the selinoid. (You …do this by placing a screwdriver across the two bolts) The vehicle will do nothing and the starter will have some sparking to it, only if the starter or celiniod is bad. If it is good, it will attempt to start. ( Full Answer )

Why does my stove keep flipping the breaker When I turn the breaker back on the stove burners will not get hot and the oven will not work when i turn on a burner the clock will come on. what do I do?
Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service. It sounds like the wiring is either short, damaged, or crossed. The breaker flipping off is to protect an overload of power....similar to a built in surge protector. It sounds like one half of the two pole breaker that fee…ds the stove is tripping on an overload. The reason that the burners do not get hot is because they are 240 volt elements. The clock circuit voltage is fed from the other half of the two pole breaker that is still working. In the back splash of the stove there should be a removable plate that has fuses behind it. Remove, the usually two screws that hold the plate on, and look for a fuse that has blown. These fuses protect the individual burners from short circuiting. If there are no fused blown replace the cover. Next thing to check is the connection of the range feeder to the breaker. You might want to get an electrician to do this. What he will look for is a bad connection from the feeder to the breaker. If this connection is OK then he will check the connections at the stove receptacle and where the cord connects to the stove. If you decide to go the electrician route, tell the electrician the size and make of the breaker (probably a 40 amp) and the size of your electrical panel in amperage. This way they can bring the correct breaker with them and you will not be charged extra time for them to go and find one. As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed. Before you do any work yourself, on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized. IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOB SAFELY AND COMPETENTLY REFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS. ( Full Answer )

Clock speed is the term that refers to the number of changes in voltage in one second. For instance, 1 GHz means that the actually voltage across the component in question has a power supply that switches from 0 volts to 5 volts, and back to 0 volts, 1 giga (10^9) times every second. Clock cycle… simply refers to a single transition from 0 volts to 5 volts and back. Clock cycles refer to the central processing unit's processing speed. It's measured in hertz -- current processors have clock speeds in the gigahertz range. ( Full Answer )
It is unknown exactly where a clock comes from. The first clockswere called sundials and they have been used since ancient times.
Your Clock Radio Dial in 1997 Pontiac Sunfire wont stay on have to hit it then it comes on how to you fix this problem?
Hitting it is not going to fix it - that will only make matters worse. A possible problem is a loose connection inside the radio or in the dash. Remove the radio and check all its wiring and the connecting wiring that leads to the radio. You'll need an Ohmeter.

Why did the generator you hooked up to your house from the pole mess up your microwave and the clock on your stove and also the controls to your oven and also your CD player will not even come on?
It would be necessary to see the wiring diagram and know how the breakers in the house are set up. This sort of hookup is normally done by a licensed electrician, and in some areas is illegal for anyone else. We do not have sufficient information to answer the question, and any guesses could be dang…erous. ( Full Answer )

They have to see what is causing this problem. And they will try to fix it.
That is a bit hard to answer, depending upon one's definition of the word "clock." In reality, the clock is the oldest instrument known to Man. The first clocks were calendars scratched into hard ground, as well as the sundial, both of which were developed as early as the Ice Age, variations of whic…h have been found in as many lands as there were people. You also have the invention of numerous types of candle clocks, incense-like clocks, and as many types of hour glasses as one can possibly imagine, cropping up in various form and function throughout the entire world. Of course, one cannot forget the magnificent water clocks that told time throughout the Middle Ages. And there were also the huge weight-driven clocks of Italy, regulated by the verge-and-foliot escapement, first constructed in the early 14th Century. If what what you want to know, though, is when the traditional first clocks appeared that are truly akin to those used today, this may best be answered by knowing that the first minute hand was created for a mechanical clock by Swiss scientist and inventor, Jost Burgi. Burgi's invention was a direct response to the call from Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe, who stressed the need to his friend of having the most accurate measurements possible for tracking the skies. This occurred in the year 1577. ( Full Answer )

Clock come from old words such a clocca or cloche meaning bell. Most people were unable to read when clocks were introduced, bells were added so that people would know the time even if they could not read or see the clock. Out in the fields for instance.
The ancient civilizations of Egypt, Sumer, India, and China defined the hour as either one twelfth of the time between sunrise and sunset or one twenty-fourth of a full day. The clocks of the early Egyptians showed 24 hours, but after the 14th century many clocks were made to register only 12 hour…s, with two 12 hour periods making up one day. Over two thousand years ago the Babylonians found it convenient to use a sexagesimal (base-60) system to divide the time of an hour into smaller units for their astronomical calculations. The first fractional sexagesimal place is now call a minute , one-sixtieth of an hour, and a second is one-sixtieth of a minute. This system was gradually adopted throughout the civilized world. Instead of minutes, however, many people still refer to a part of an hour as 'a quarter of an hour', 'half past the hour', or 'just before the hour', etc. ( Full Answer )

If the radio works, but the display does not, you're probably hosed. I've read here that the the radios can be repaired, but I doubt if it's worth the expense. When I bought my '96, I had the same problem. In addition, the covering/markings on the buttons were worn and torn. I bought a replaceme…nt radio from an Ebay seller for about $45, if memory serves. It was from a Grand Prix, but was the same as as the one in my car. With luck, you can replace the factory cassette model with a CD model. Just be sure that the radio is unlocked, or that you have the security code. If you don't, you'll be in for another headache. ( Full Answer )

I would like my bedroom tv to come on automatically in the morning instead of an alarm clock Is there a way to make this happen?
Most TV's today have this feature. Since I can not know what brand you have I am going to suggest you look in two areas to find this setting. If you go into settings on your remote you should find a timer setting. Go into that and set the timer for the time you want to get up. The other spot where y…ou may find this is in the tools menu. Again you would go into the timer and set the time for the TV to come on. Once set it works well. I use to have my TV do this. ( Full Answer )

Because clocks go from 1 to 12 and then start over. We work on base10, so we start counting over at 1 sooner. So from 8 to 12 is 4hours. Then from 12 to 6 is 6 hours. 4 hours + 6 hours is 10 hours.The 2 on the clock is 14 on a 24 hour clock, and that is 6 hoursafter 8.
