I have an 03 Silverado Hd 2500 with factory radio.I set the time and it works fine till I cut the key off and then it goes back to 12:00.Any ideas. Thx.

Mine does the same sometimes, but there's no pattern. Sometimes it reset after sitting a week, sometimes after an hour.

Is there a fuse blown somewhere maybe that keeps power to the clock.You would think i'd lose the station presets as well.

Those factory radios are junk, go aftermarket and be done with it.

I agree.I have to replace my antenna completely because a buzzard hit the wip and broke it off down to the stem.I was holding off till I can do both.i hear that is a chore in itself

There's a thread about hiding your antenna on here somewhere, a search should turn it up.

I would have gone aftermarket, but radio and adapters would be $400, and stock radio does all it needs to.

That truck only has the 1 power feed and 1 ground, the class 2 data line is what tells it to turn on and off
