Default Setting radio presets

Just swapped out my '95 dakota radio with a factory original replacement but don't remember the steps to set the radio stations. Can someone tell me these steps?

I never had the OE stereo in my truck, cause it had an aftermarket head unit when I got it, which I upgraded to a nicer one, but I would assume it's just like any other car radio I've ever used. Just tune in to the station you want and hold down the numbered button you want it preset to.

Yeah, 95_318SLT is right. Stock radio just go to the station you want and hold the button down for the preset to register it. You can put two presets per number. Hit it once when you want the first station and twice for the second.

Tune to station.

Press "SET" button once for the first set, a second time for the second set.

Press the button you wish to preset it to.

For instance, tune in 99.3 FM, press SET, press SET, press 1.

This put Ruston, LA's KPCH on the second push of button 1.
