Re: EB fairmont clock

Yes you have to set your EB back to the 80's. And who said Ford don't use out dated components????

I think the year is 1982, could be 1985..

There is no update for the clock

Re: EB fairmont clock

I just recently installed my trip computer in my EA and i had to set my clock back to 1986 to get the correct dates. This might help.

Re: EB fairmont clock

They thought the old EB's would stop running when the millennium bug :fly: clock struck 12, but they was wrong!!

for 2003 set the clock to 1986 then on Jan 1 2004 set it to 1998 until Mar 1 then go to 1999. 2005 set it to 1994. If you still have it in 2006 set it to 1989.
Do you need dates following this???
Cheers - Eric
