Can't change clock

When I hit the clock button to change the time on my 2011 F150 the numbers disapear instead of flashing to set the time. Anyone have this problem or any ideas?

Your owners manual says to press and hold the button until the display flashes.
Then use the seek buttons to change the digit.
If you have the navigation system there are different instruction in the manual supplement.

That is too funny! I found the F150 clock is the easiest to set out of any Ford I have ever owned. Push clock button and enter numbers!

Just make sure you put it in park before trying to revise the time. I tried while driving. Didn't work until I put the truck in park.

I changed mine while driving as well. Not fast though, yeah, still probably the wrong thing to do ....

Thank you, that worked!

When I first set the clock it was the easiest clock I had ever set but for some reason it didn't work as the manual said this last time. The numbers did not flash when I held the clock button, they disapeared and you couldn't use the station up/down buttons. Figured it was something else simple.
