: 97 Grand CD/Radio time setting on VIC question.

Like the topic says, I have a 97 GCL. Today the LED for the Time/Station indicator started going out on me.

Question: If I drop in another stereo with a wiring harness to mate it up, can you still reset the clock on the VIC after doing this? The reason I ask is because I've always had to set the clock on the stereo to change the time on the VIC.

I assume then that it's like my 98......if you lose the stereo you lose the correct time on the VIC....is that important since the new stereo will probably have that option???

Yes you can set the time on the VIC without the RAZ radio. The VIC whatever module will recognize it is no longer slaved to the radio. It was only the premium sound system that did that. Others you needed to set both radio and VIC. I have had both factory radios and now a Pioneer.
I still miss the steering wheel controls.
