Well, after about 70K miles on my 2001 GT 5-speed, the clock began working intermitently. Now, at about 70,500 miles, it rarely works. Usually, if it is going to work properly it will do so after starting the car, but it sometimes comes on after driving a while (but not much anymore).
Can anyone shed some light on what the problem might be? Loose wiring? Bad clock? I'd try to fix it myself than shell out major money to the Hyundai dealer.

may be due to loose wiring.

hi everybody....i m also having some problem with the digital clock of my car....hope u people will hep ed me out....
All of the sudden the digital clock in the 2002 elantra just changed to 3 hours off. For this to happen, something had to power down, but what? Also, the buttons to reset the time won't work now either. Anybody have a clue and an idea on how to fix this?

Mine 2002 Elantra 1.8 also have the same clock problem, now most of the time not working. I had checked the wiring, no problem at all, checked the wiring when I change the air-cond thermostat.

However, dashboard light ok so far, my car ran 100k km so far.

Yes guys this is a common problem with the clock in these cars.
Unfortunately they will require replacement.
The problems are within the clocks themselves.

I too was having problems with the wife's digital clock and asked the dealership what the replacement cost was. I was told it would be $300 Cdn. I told the wife to ignore that clock and use the one on the removable radio/cd player

My clock also went dead after 3 years of driving. I think it is the problem with the clock itself and it costs $100 odd Sing dollars to replace it. So just forgo it and use your Stereo clock to display the time.

Dashboard clock on my 2002 Elantra GT began failing after 2 years, the delar determined it was an "open circuit" problem and replaced the clock free under warranty.

Seems like clocks on cars (any car) have always been a problem. Any old cars I have driven have never had working clocks. My 01' Elantra does the same thing -- sometimes works, sometimes doesn't. I don't worry about it too much. It works most of the time, but we just had a daylight savings time change here in the US and when I reset it, it stopped working for a day. Now it seems to be working again (most of the time).
