Default set clock in a 93' ?

1993 dodge w-150. Embarrased to ask but how in the heck do you set the stock chrysler clock with the am/fm radio/cassette? There are no select, set, clock, or hour-minute buttons anywhere on the face. Have tried multiple button combinations and no luck. Thanks in advance.

disconnect power and re hook it up at 12 O-clock.

JK. there should be 2 very tiny buttons right of the tape deck about the size of paper clips. one has H and the other has M above them and they should be what you have to use to set the time.

Ha. I wish it were that easy, but as I said in my original post there are no hour- minute buttons anywhere on the face.

On my 96 there is two little holes to the right of the tape slot.
The top one is the hour, bottom one minutes.
A ball point pen works fine.

I have a factory manual on Chrysler Sound Systems. Everyone of the listed original equipment am/fm/cassette radios has a set button and all but one have select buttons. Are you sure it is the original radio? If you can show a picture of the face or list the buttons that are there instead of the ones that aren't there we might be able to help further.

Picture not wanting to load, in the mean time here are the userrs button options:

Volume ****, Treble, Bass, Balance, Seek, Scan, pesets 1,2,3,4,5,6 Am/Fm button, Tune Knob , Eject, and NR. THERE ARE NO HOUR MINUTE BUTTONS anywhere lol. Ive owned every generation ram out there so ive seen other setups such as the hour-minute buttons or the SEL-SET buttons which are easy to figure out but this damn radio in the 93' i cannot figure out haha.

Hope this helps I will try to figure out why my pics wont load when i get more time.
