Welcome to the forum tondoc,

there are several different clocks fitted to the early C3 models, but from what I have seen they all have buttons near the display to press. One cycles through the options, the other makes the changes.

See the two buttons, either side of the display.

same for the larger screen.


There is also an uncommon plain old sad looking clock.

It has 2 buttons on the front for setting the time.

Can you post a photo or a link to a photo? Having no buttons makes an adjustment seriously hard.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all the evidence and pretend you never tried :lol:

You should be able to change the time on the 2 line display screen through the 'menu' button on your radio if the original radio is fitted.

Hi all,

I have recently installed a Pioneer aftermarket radio with steering controls etc on my 2003 C3 Desire.

Everything is working fine apart from the time on the original display in the car. Holding the left button down will refresh the time however it never moves from whatever time this was pressed. Any suggestions as this is starting to get really annoying.

Thanks

If the problem stared at the same time your new radio was installed you may find the radio has been installed incorrectly. The test would be to remove the new radio and install the original to test.

If your original radio controlled the clock settings and your new one doesn't then you may have omitted to install the additional interface.

This CTSCT003.2AA connects2 adaptor for the C3 is designed to interface an aftermarket stereo with the Citroen clock controller. (The same adaptor fits many different Citroen models).
