How long did u have it before you took it out? Just curious as we have just got our GQ and i test drove quite a few and a mate has one and no clocks worked in any of them. You might have a fortune wrapped up in the shed.

I had a 1990 Maverick from new til 1995. Clock worked fine all the time and the truck had 177,000klm on the clock.
Then I bought a 1993 RX Patrol and had it for 5 years....no worries with the clock and it had 280,000 on the clock.

Is that the clock with the time or the clock with the ks which clock does what may be asking to much from the clock doing time and ks.

All the best

Simple solution - the PCBs tended to have cracked solder on them - resolder it and it will work fine

My old GQ's clock used to reset itself when used on corrugations or rougher sections of track.

I took it apart, sanded down the contacts that you use to reset the time (from memory there are two on the face?) with some emery paper. Only needed to take off a bit and it worked fine from then until I sold it 8 years later!

If its totalled.. who needs to know the time when you're in the bush??

cheers

1989 Ford Maverick, the clock (that tells the time of day) works as good now as it did 15 years ago. Spot on!

The speedo is OK too, although not digital.

"Ghost" describes mine exactly. Question. How doe one get the clock out to solder the connections - from the back? - I have put this operation off in the past, but for the moment I feel inspired following the posts above! Advice please.
