I was fiddling around with the radio today, and when you hold down 3 and 6 together and then let go of 6 and press 5, it illuminates all of the radio (where the clock is supposed to be as well). If you in turn press any of the other 5 buttons (1 makes your radio do a long self-test), it goes through some other menu options. I was wondering if anyone can figure out how to enable the digital clock, so I can have both kinds to choose from.

The holding of 3 and 6 alone does a speaker self-test after 3 seconds. I would think this would be handy when installing new speakers too.

I found out about this from an earlier post about how to determine the version of a radio.

Thanks, I hope we can get an answer for this, because I bet it's just a stupid little button click that can turn on the digital clock for people who just can't seem to figure out an analog clock (or aren't in the mood to think about it.)

Somewhere on one of the posts I saw a comment that the radio is programmed electronically from the rear. We need a full programming manual to see what features can be enabled without disabling other features. I agree with you - the radio has many capabilities we don't get turned on depending on the options and model you get.

They failed to program my SEL radio. It had a clock display, and I could set the time and all that.

However, having failed to program the radio also ment my steering buttons did not work. The radio would also change stations on its own when I operated different car controls. I DID NOT ask them to leave the radio on when they fixed it (all they did was blug into the OBD port under the steering wheel). So I can't tell you if THEY can do it or not.

Emphasis on THEY as there might be simply a "Fusion SEL" button on his reprogrammer, and although you might be able to manually turn on all sorts of things if you had your own programming tool, the repair shop radio reprogrammer might not be so flexible.
