Slow Clock?

I've noticed that my aftermarket KW-XR810 stereo's clock has been running slow. I always sync it to the same as my phone, but after a while it starts to lose pace. Now, about a month or 2 later, its 5 minutes behind.

When I did a search, I've noticed this to be a problem for others with their stock stereos as well. I'm wondering if there is something electrically wrong that is affecting the after market stereo.

Anyone know?

Does that problem directly effect the off roading ability ? Sorry I could not resist.

It's a jeep thing. Quit *****ing, lube it up and punch it in the face.

Seriously though. Something goes on with these things. Sometimes out of the blue when I'm sitting in it with the key out, mine makes noises like the beginning of 'welcome to the machine'.

Slow electrons? Drive in a lower gear so the alternator spits out the electrons faster and the clock will be correct. Might help with the outside air temp indicator that's inaccurate too.

On a serious note I don't think much can be done to fix it. I crank it forward a couple minutes fast about once a month.

Everyone having issues... is this with your stock radio or aftermarket? Mine is after market, but I'm wondering if the issue then could be coming from somewhere else. Just such a strange occurrence...

I had to bump my stock clock up 5 mins today. I am pretty sure it is just a low grade/cheap component that saved chrysler 50 cents on every radio.

So set it forward 3 minutes... Then at the end of two months you'll only be behind three minutes. Problems solved.

That is weird though.

To answer your question, yes there is a problem with with one of the Chrysler modules that effect the clocks....ah timing. All models have the prob they have said for years they are going to have a fix. As of now there is no fix.
