Most automotive clocks are built into a car's radio. However, in the Mazda5, the clock is a separate unit. The clock shares its panel with the ambient temperature display screen, which is a few inches above the radio. This is a helpful set-up as it allows you to keep the factory clock even if you install an aftermarket radio. Setting the Mazda5's clock only takes you a couple of minutes.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Turn the Mazda5's ignition on. The engine does not have to be running.

  2. 2

    Examine the control panel beneath the clock display. You'll see three buttons: "H," "M" and ":00."

  3. 3

    Hold down "H" to adjust the clock's hour. The digit will slowly advance. Release "H" when the hour is correct.

  4. 4

    Hold down "M" to adjust the clock's minute. Release the button.

Tips and warnings

  • To toggle between the 12-hour clock and the 24-hour clock, push and hold the "H" and "M" buttons simultaneously for a few seconds.
