Wrong date in car

Post by chesterflaps » Mon Mar 26, 2018 11:59 pm

The date keeps changing on my car and I have to manually change it every few weeks.

Anybody else had this? It’s an LCI2

Weird. Does your car perform lots of Stop-Starts?

Could be a poorly battery, someone killed a brand new one in a month with something like 400 stop-starts!

That is poor if it’s correct. I drive for a living so I’m forever in traffic which obviously uses stop-start regularly.

Interestingly I just deselected auto date and time, rechecked it and it corrected itself.
