Only 'time' will tell...
 
As I have posted prior, My '12 Liberty loses about 2 minutes per week on the stereo clock. It was posted that Jeep had a bulletin regarding that issue, so since my basic warranty is set to expire, I took it in. The local dealer did the 'flash' update but I guess they determined that didn't solve the problem, as they ordered some sort of radio module. Had that part installed today, which also required re-coding all the keys. Won't know for a week or so if that solves the problem, but will post to let others know if it's worth the effort.

I was under the impression that the module is what was needed to be replaced. Keep us posted in a few months lol. People laugh when you tell them about this problem.

Mine does this too. I just accepted it as a little piece of character for the Jeep and irony because I actually work with timing as a job.

Most do. I think it's model year sensitive, but most will admit there's does it. Mine does.

Mine did it but now I have a new stereo. This isn't a KK problem it's brand wide.

Mine did it. Then they did the tsb and it hasn't done it since. Used to be a minute a week or so. Almost of of Chrysler does/did it.

Mine does it, which is inconvenient for someone who's habitually late. I set it 15 mins ahead, but in 2 weeks it was 5 mins behind. I just ignore it now.

:laugh: While driving I ask my girlfriend what time it is cuz I don't trust the clock.

I told the dealership about mine when I was in for the active head restraint recall and they didn't seem to care. Maybe they were waiting for me to make a big deal about it, which I didn't. So they didn't fix it.

Re-coding all the keys? Does that mean if I have the clock problem fixed my plain old chipped keys that I programmed in the ignition will not work afterward? I think they can only be programmed once. Not sure about the fob keys.

It's quite possible, but when I first called service, they told me to bring it in for a flash update. But they somehow knew that didn't solve the issue before I even got the vehicle back, and I was told they had to order a radio module.

I'll post in a week or so if it looks like it resolved the problem. If it doesn't, I'll just continue what I've been doing, correcting the time every two weeks and setting it a few minutes fast.

Here is the info on the TSB:

I had it done. Required giving them my keys. Not sure if they replaced them or re-programmed them. Clock problem was solved. No further issues.

I went to the dealer about this in my '11. Since it's a TSB and NOT a recall they said it would be $500+ :eek: to fix it as it required the radio module AND 2 new keys plus programming because I bought the Lib used and didn't know if the keys were the originals. I was VERY close to blowing my top (as I have a VERY short fuse sometimes...) but instead made a snap decision and decided to politely say no thank you and walk out. I do realize they were most likely trying to give me the shaft but the radio losing time just isn't that big of a deal to me. It would be nice if the time was accurate but it's not. It just seems the times I actually am running a little later than I should be and I look at the time on the clock just happens to be when it's been a couple of weeks since I have set the time and I'm actually later than I think I am.

Just wanted to post an update to this thread... I had the TSB done, which required a reflash and then the replacement of a radio module.

It's been a little more than two weeks since that work was done and today I checked the accuracy of the clock... perfect! No more setting the clock ahead by five minutes and it's running behind the following week. Looks like the effort was well worth it.

Did they have to do anything with your keys?
