The clock in the radio is controlled by a module? Seems like it would be in the radio on a PC board.

They do indeed, you can talk with your dealer but there is still no cure, there's lots of talk about this on most of the other Jeep models message boards.

I fixed mine by retiring.
Knowing the exact time is a lot less important to me now.

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?
Cold weather slows down the digital clock, all digital clocks. This is because the quartz vibration slows down a tiny fraction at low temperature and speeds up during hot weather. Mine follows GPS so it's accurate.

It's not that simple.
A graphic representation of a crystal's frequency variation due to changes in temperature forms a parabolic curve, where any temperature variation, up or down, from it's "likes to be at" temperature will slow the crystal's vibrations.

Yes you are right about that. I was trying to explain but in the process over-simplified it. However, in my non-GPS vehicle, in colder climate, I started to notice the clock slowed down a minute or so after about 2-3 weeks. That is a very slow change

Keeping time is still a relatively new concept. Chrysler will get it figured out one of these days. It's all relative.

And yes, mine looses a couple of minutes a month. Annoying.

Mine looses 3 - 4 minutes per month. I'm in Florida, so my crystals are pretty warm LOL

I just took my 2012 in last week and they have a fix for it now. Some sort of new module they installed.

I believe there is a fix now. I also believe that there is a TSB regarding this, it involves replacing the module that also controls the keyless entry. Do a search on here and it should show up.

I set mine to reflect the satellite radio time and it stays fairly accurate. Otherwise, I kept having to switch mine too.

Here is the link to an earlier thread on this topic and the TSB issued regarding the clock loosing time.

Hope this helps !
