Default XTS5000 Clock Display

Having a problem with keeping the clock displayed on my XTS5000. It seems when I remove the battery the clock blanks out. Is there an on-board battery that may need to be replaced. My XTS 2500 does not seems to have this problem.

Turn the radio off before you remove the discharged battery. Replace the discharged battery with a charged battery immediately.

Hidden behind the encryption module on the controller board you should find a type MS621 battery that holds the RTC's time and date data.

you need an xts5000 housing removal tool. 6685833D01 is the part number. Yes you could use a small flat head however those tend to bend the housing down at the bottom of the radio.

the battery slips into a little plastic holder with contacts.

What if you have replaced that battery already and the problem continues? Could something else be causing it?

I found a video that may help you out.

Snarlingrabiddog on youtube has a video on the replacement.

It is a bad clock battery, they are rechargeable and have a finite life.

If you are very gentle you can get the case apart with a screwdriver. But if ordering the battery from Moto, get a gasket and the tool while your at it. I recommend you lube the gasket if reusing the gasket, and clean the gasket surfaces when putting it back together. Also helps hold the gasket in place and makes it much easier to get radio back together. And will help it seal better if not replacing gasket. New gaskets come prelubed.

Side note, just incase FFPM571 jumps in here or any one else.
If you don't feel comfortable using a screw driver, than by all means get the tool.
I have opened tons of these radio's with and without the tool and have not broken a case, (keyword) YET. Knock on wood.
I have had other techs still break the case even with the tool. Be gentle whatever u use,
