My clock has been difficult to reset (won't always respond to the twist and rotate) and now will not reset at all. Anyone have any tricks to get it to reset?

just keep on trying, let it go a bit in and don't pull it out all the way... mine does the same and I fiddle around until I get it

Agreed. It can be very tricky and you have to get it juuuust right.

This is what I do. Pull knob out, rotate right or left, then while holding right or left push knob in towards dash slightly until you feel resistance. That always works for me in both my ML's.

All those tricks did not work. So, at high noon, I pulled the instrument cluster fuse, which apparently just does the lighting. Pulling the negative battery pole didn't work either. Does anyone know which or if the clock is on a fuse?

Mine is also a hit or miss affair.......i have to pull on the knob towards me quite firmly and then a hard twist left or right (hrs/mins)

I got lucky sitting at a stop light after my attempt to pull the fuse. I tried Mike's ML's technique of pushing slightly until it "engages" and bam, it left me reset the hour.

Thanks guys.
