Slow Clock

It's highly probable I'm losing my mind but has anyone experienced a slow digital clock? I keep setting it ahead and within a few weeks it's running behind again. Ive seen Chrysler do some dumb stuff but this would take the cake if they managed to have a slow digital clock!

My stock and aftermarket JVC radio both did/do that.

Need advice or parts without all the bs. Call Marcus at River City Offroad

Nice...i don't drive my jeep everyday, so the first thing i do when i get in is reset the clock. At least it's easy to do.

I think this thing is finally coming together. Still Needed: drive shafts, frame mount rails...then done son! For a while...

Fucking conspiracy I tell ya. Why can't the ass clowns get with someone who can actually, Oh I don't know make watches that tell the correct time and have them design the clock in the jeep.

Yeah mine takes a while to get noticeably behind and by then I've forgotten that the problem exists and wind up being 5-10 minutes late to everything. Then I adjust it and the vicious cycle begins once again. I'm telling you it's some sort of sick sociological experiment!

Yep, it's the wife's dd and it drives her nuts. She sets it a couple minutes ahead and waits for it to catch up then repeats the cycle.

Inquiring minds want to know how you adjusted yours to only lose a minute a month. Mine loses 5 minutes in a month.

Think about what kind of EPIC engineering fail you have to achieve to result in a quartz clock that loses time like the Jeep does. Chrysler, you fail at time.

I have a 2010. Please tell me they've corrected this since then.

Let's see, our '08 Rubi did it, our '09 Rubi did and now our '12 Rubi does it.

Nope, not fixed and not likely to ever get fixed.

Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

Mine's been perfect. Must be the 4.10's that came in the D30 that are keeping it in sync.
