You seem to misunderstand,the clock in my 2008 is visible,even though the radio is off.I have owned many vehicles and have never before had to turn a radio on to change the time on the clock.
Correct, on my '97 Ranger, the Scan/Seek buttons were used to change the time. If the radio was ON, you'd be changing stations, etc. instead of the time.
I just changed my '09's clock a week ago as we fell back one hour here and frankly I don't even remember if it was ON or OFF for sure. I "do" know that pressing the clock button brings up "enter time' on the screen.
