    Find one in a junkyard pull it out then snip off a decent amount of lead after the connector. Strip the wires back, find a battery in the junkyard and see if it powers up and the functions work.

    Shouldn't matter. I think it's been covered on here before. I'm hitting my local u pull it this coming weekend for various junk for my build with no name. If I see a clock I'll snag it for ya

    when did they take out the clock pod? I took mine out to put my radar display there so I can part with mine.

    Thanks, I can't take credit for the charcoal 96 gt tho. Traded a friend my 93 lx drag roller for it. The clock lists for $4 on Harry's u pull it price list. That and the shipping is all is want for it. Here's their website if ya wanna check em out. Wegotused.com I'm in no way affiliated with Harry's. It's just one of the yards that keeps an online inventory by location. Their online inventory is soft tho. Last trip I made to pennsburg the site listed 8 mustangs. They had about 20 94-04 cars

    Clock pod was removed in 98 as far as I know.

    You might have a short. I put in like 5 clocks over the life of my car and they all died sooner or later. I think it's a problem with some 94 95, stangs. The original one I pulled out had a burn mark on the actual clock connector
