Just one year removed from a complete overhaul, the 2004 Accord came standard with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and an AM-FM-CD audio system. Buyers could opt for a navigation system in the EX trim level for an extra $2,000. There are different processes for resetting the clock on a navigation-equipped Accord and one without navigation, but both are fairly simple.
Setting the Clock Without Navigation
Press and hold the “Sound” button on the radio until you hear a beep and the time on the radio starts blinking. Press and hold the preset button “4” until you reach the desired hour, then release the button. Press and hold the preset button “5” until you reach the desired minute setting, then release the button. Press and release the “Sound” button to confirm your entry.
Setting the Clock With Navigation
Press the “Set-up” button on the GPS screen. Press “4” in the “Set-up Screen” menu, then press the “Time Zone/Clock” button. Toggle the “Auto Daylight Savings Time” and “Auto Time Zone by GPS” options to “Off” to allow you to manually adjust the time without the GPS resetting it. Press the “+” or “-“ buttons next to the “Hour” and “Minute” on the bottom of the screen to adjust the time to the time you desire.
