Setting the clock: 12/24-hour format?

Asked by Nov 08, 2010 at 07:53 PM about the 2009 Mazda MAZDA3

Question type: General

I can set my clock to the correct hour, no problem - but I can't for the life of me figure out how to switch between 12 and 24-hour format. I KNOW it has a 24-hr format, because that's what it was in when I bought the car. However, since the last time I had it worked on (I assume they disconnected the battery at some point, since I had to reset the clock), it's been in 12-hr format, and there are no instructions in the manual to switch it. Does anybody know how to do this?

You've got to hold CLOCK button first, then when you have 12 -> 24 hours blinking on your screen you can push SET button. It shall work if I remember well what I've got to do on my own Mazda 3 2005.

the tune knob is what you push untill you get to that option don't hold just push it a couple of times then when you get to the 12/24 turn the knob. 2009 mazda3

Great! I'll give that a try tomorrow - the other instructions I've followed haven't worked. Mine's a 2009, and I guess the other instructions were for older models.
