tomthbomb My 2012 is right on. Maybe syncing with my RAZR Maxx via Bluetooth or the maybe with the GPS?

MaskMan Fixed my 130 slow time issue....

With a new 2013 730n radio...

J33P3RS Like many of you apparently, I though it was just me. All the sudden I would notice 2 min slow & fix, then maybe 3-4, etc. Guess pro-cal should have added clock calibration in with speedo calibration.

2five22 Does anyone have a fast clock in their Wrangler?

Strokerswild Jesus motor.....

JEEPDON Here I thought the Jesus motor; the fantastic Pantistar; would make everything go faster!!!!. I guess I was wrong!

WXman The TSB is out now. It's TSB # 08-003-13.

It involves replacing the WCM/SKREEM module.

It applies to 2009-2012 JK and KK models.

WXman 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.

Ivoryring 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!

1quick1 Mine is slow.
01-03-2013 05:44 PM
Peter T 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.
01-03-2013 02:56 PM
Mr. Fish My 2012 with 130 loses about 1min every 2 weeks. Not a huge deal to reset it, but kinda silly that it's an issue at all.
01-03-2013 09:11 AM
jcj2121 Do they all do this or just a lucky few?
01-03-2013 08:33 AM
lee indy i fix mine every couple weeks.

agreed pathetic
01-03-2013 07:20 AM
Strokerswild Mine loses 2-3 minutes per week.

In the 8.5 years I owned my '04 F150 I never had to reset the minutes on the clock, just the hours when it came to daylight savings time.

Pathetic if you ask me.
01-02-2013 08:10 PM
DJL2 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?

Just sort of sad...
01-02-2013 08:03 PM
WXman As of today (2-January-2013) my dealership says the flash is still not available and is "in process".
12-26-2012 03:32 PM
285 HP Yep a min or two every two weeks...let me know if you found a fix for it.
12-26-2012 01:05 PM
Raziel They are working on it last I heard which was a few months ago. They replace the module for it twice & then found out chrysler is working on it. Haven't found any info for a fix it
12-26-2012 11:10 AM
res1971 I was wondering why my clock was over 30 minutes slow when I got back last week from A-stan. I thought someone set it to that time zone or something sine they are set on a 30 minute difference time..
12-26-2012 10:57 AM
kappaknight For those of you with the problem, do you have the 130 radio? I have the 430N and it hasn't been an issue after about a month. I assume the ones with satellite and nav are okay?
12-26-2012 10:07 AM
WXman there's lots of threads on this. yes, there is a flash available according to the dealerships. some guys have gotten it done already. mine is going in any day now.
12-26-2012 09:58 AM
JTPhoto JK Daughters 09 is out a couple minutes a month. Wife has the same unit in her 10 Caravan, set it and forget it.
12-26-2012 08:59 AM
Strokerswild I have to reset monthly also.....
12-25-2012 01:34 PM
nwbronco I'm with WatchThis. We have 3. Set 'em and forget 'em. Y'all are allowing the GPS to control the time...right?

WatchThis! I find it funny that my clock has never missed a beat. Still the same as it was the last time I reset it after the duel battery install............

Any new software?
I had the same problem in 2000. What makes you think they'd fix it now? It also happens in my 2010. I adjust it every couple weeks.
12-25-2012 10:16 AM
Tater Todd I keep thinking I'm on time for work.
12-25-2012 10:14 AM
