if u noticed the clock dimmmmssss when u turn on the headlights and comes back to clear view when lights are off I have never had my clock completyl go out goodluck on the problem!
my clock died a while back, i just went to the boneyard and got one, the lady didnt even charge me for it.
My clock would just stay off completely when I turned the car on so I would give it a whack on the dashboard and it would come back, but after few weeks it just went out for good. The clock is supposed to dim when you turn your lights on, that is how it works with all cars that I have been in.

I thought my clock had a cold weather problem, too, as it would come back on when the cab warmed up. Soon it quit all together ...
I did some searching, and some guy claimed there is a resistor and/or diode that comes loose.
This afternoon, as my girlfriend slept the afternoon away (bless her heart, she's next to me now, shooting me looks of ice-cold daggers), I tore into the problem.
I broke a few of the small plastic tabs holding it all in (damn plastic %@&#!) , but it all went back in just fine (black tape works nice).
Anyways, I took the clock body apart down to the circuit board/LED assembly. I had to desolder the two LED ground mounts on the bottom and swing the LED up & out of the way, and lo-and-behold, the 510 ohm resistor/diode (not sure what it is; it's small, rectangular, with 510 printed on it) on the right had a solder broken loose. A little gentle heat and a touch of solder, then resoldering the LED back into place, put it all back together, and, woo-hoo!, it works again, all for the price of $0 u.s.
Now I can sit back and be proud all evening ...
wow i thought i was just me having my clock died as well. i did do the bang on the dash self fix move but now its dead for sure.

My clock was dead when i bought it. It does work nice as a cell holder but when it gets out of the body shop i think that i will try the teardown and rebuild approach
my clock just died too @ 75,xxx miles. I never realized how much I looked at it now that it doesn't work.. and I can't justify spending $50+ bucks on buying a new one.
I like the idea of a clock recall someone posted earlier. If someone starts the petition, I'll be the first one to sign it
