Daughters 09 is out a couple minutes a month. Wife has the same unit in her 10 Caravan, set it and forget it.

Mine also loses time...and it annoys my wife quite a lot. Honestly, it's sort of embarrassing. I can get a five dollar wrist watch that keeps better time - surely, someone over at Jeep/Chrysler can reverse engineer a Casio wrist watch and crack the code on decent time keeping. When it was Daimler-Chrysler did it occur to no one that it might be worth asking how it is they manage to keep time in their cars?
Glad I am not the only one having to fix the clock every time I get in when it has been sitting for a couple of days. I don't understand. I would have thought the radio would have a 12volt wire live to keep the clock up to date.
I am sure I am going to jynx it - but my 130 w/ Sirius didn't drift at all since I got it in August... but I'm pulling the radio out to replace with Pioneer aftermarket so it won't matter if I'm temping the clock gods!
The fact that Chrysler is saying a flash is coming to fix this issue leads me to think that the problem does not lie within the head unit itself. The problem apparently is in the computer module that powers the head unit or something like that. Low voltage feed making the clock run slow. So in theory, it doesn't matter which head unit you install it'll be the same problem.
What aggravates me is that most of the guages are wrong. The ambient temp. is way off (was like this on my '11 also, and I'm a weather guy so I know how to test for this), the speedometer was wrong from the factory (verified by GPS), the clock won't keep time, the buttons on the wheel are finicky and you have to hit them a lot to cycle through the settings, the avg. MPG display is always wrong and won't even work at all if you try to reset it while moving, etc. etc. It's like Chrysler doesn't have a clue how to calibrate an instrument. We paid for these features whether we wanted to or not...least they could do is take the time to make them accurate.
