Mine is doing it as well. Just noticed it this morning. Every time I start the vehicle, I have TO reset the clock. See what happens tomorrow

Same here! My wife's Jeep Grand Cherokee started doing the same thing this morning! The plot thickens! This is a 2014 as well.

Re: Clock keeps resetting

I'm guessing it's because today doesn't actually exist ha! It's a leap year so Feb 29th probably isn't programmed in the computer.

I bet it starts working just fine tomorrow. As long as I only have to put up with it for 1 day every 4 years...I'm ok with it.

Re: Clock keeps resetting

My Cherokee has been doing the same thing all day. The technician at a local dealership was willing to "recalibrate" the system for $200.+. I said no thanks.

Re: Clock keeps resetting

Same issue here. Started the car at 7:42am, clock was 12:00. It didn't recognize the USB stick that it's been playing for weeks either. I had to pull it out and plug it back in. Literally three minutes later the time changed to 3:45. I didn't reset anything just to see if this resolves itself. When I checked the date it was Feb 28 2012... Before the car was made, but also a leap year(??) Curious to see what happens this morning. This thread is the only thing I've found online about this!
