Only pull the one for "Multimedia". It's a 15A fuse.
I pulled the fuse (fortunately, I'd read the owner's manual and knew there was a fuse puller under the hood -- those things are tiny). I let it sit for a few minutes, so the electrons had a chance to run out , put the fuse back, and voila, the clock was there again. The GPS hadn't lost the satellite info, either.

Thanks very much for your help!

P.S. Man, this car has a lot of fuses... I was glad for the chart on the cover (and in the manual).
