Default clock disappeared?

while i was driving today, i needed to check the time, and the numbers have vanished. im assuming that its a shortage of some sort. im not too familiar with the knowledge of the electrical components of my car. has anyone heard or seen this problem? if so, any recommendations on how to fix it?

Assuming the clock is the only thing not working and all fuses are ok, the clock itself may be shot. There have been posts regarding bad solder connections on the circuit board inside the clock module but you need some electronic skills to fix that. If you can't do it yourself try posting in your local forum to find someone nearby who can look at it for you and possibly fix it. Also check the classifieds, there are sometimes OEM clocks for sale. They go for around $20-25.

It will take you about 1 minute to replace the clock- remove pod by pulling up and towards you, unplug clock, remove clock from pod and replace w/new one, reinstall.
Sitting here I cannot guarantee that a new clock will solve your problem, as I said previously it depends on whether the problem is inside the clock itself or not. But as long as everything else in the car is working, it most probably is.

Mine too, but my cd player is being lame too. So I think my car wants me to get a new deck (built in clock ) and a shift light for where the clock is.
