Understanding the different buttons
If you have a Pioneer car stereo, then you will want to familiarize yourself with the different buttons on the unit. This will help you when it comes time to set the clock.
There are a few different buttons on Pioneer car stereos, and each one has a specific function.
The OK button or VOLUME button is the biggest button, and it is used to confirm any changes that you have made. The Exit or BAND key takes you back to the main screen, and you can scroll through options by volume button or lever in some models. The Main Screen is activated when you press the SRC button.

Step 1: Go to the main screen
To set the clock on a Pioneer car stereo, you first need to go to the main screen. This can be done by pressing the SRC button. The “SRC” button is usually located in the top left-hand corner of your car stereo screen. Once you have pressed this button, the main screen will appear.
Step 2: Finding the Clock settings
Once you are on the main screen, you will want to scroll through the two options until you find “system.”
