Honda 'clock problem' Y22K

Having spent a fruitless 30 minutes or so trying to adjust the clock on my 2009 CRV I thought check the internet and have found out that Honda have a problem in that the clocks, on 1st January, have reverted to 2002 rather than 2022 and the clocks themselves seem to be stuck on a random time. E.g every time we turn on ignition it's 1:02. It then keeps good time (albeit the wrong time) for the journey and then will revert to 1:02 when starting the return journey.

Some reports say that the problem will resolve itself in August 2022!!! However, having spoken to our local dealer I've been told to expect a recall notice in due course but they couldn't advise when.

The problem seems to be restricted to models with the NAVI system.

Thought I'd post just in case anyone else has been pulling their hair out trying to adjust their clocks without success.

I've had the same issue with my 2007 Accord, I saw an article on Slashdot that highlight it and realised that was the problem with my car.

I very much doubt they are going to bother fixing it though.

In my car the minutes are correct but the hour is wrong, the manual adjustment doesn't work at all :)

I have a 2007 Honda CRV with Sat Nav, since the beginning of the month it reverts to 1 o'clock every time it is restarted too.

By all accounts, it's most Honda's from 2004-2012 with the "Navi" based satnav systems. I suspect that is a LOT of cars out there that are broken.

Rob,I suspect you're right that nothing will be done.

A couple of years ago the voice command system on my CRV decided it would change to French and I had much 'fun' trying to speak French to change it back to English. The problem manifested itself a few months later but this time it went all German on me! Now that was an entirely different ball game as although I can get by in French from the manufacturer's crib sheet German proved to be a right PITA.

There is a similar issue on my 2003 Porsche 911. It has the nav option and picks up the date / month / year from the GPS signal, however, the Porsche engineers failed to future proof the storage of the transmitted codes and the car is stuck in April 2002. I can manually program the time still.

Not sure I dare go over 88 mph any more :-)

For those outside of North America, the actual groundhog day is on February 02 each year.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, but just like Y2K it's not a real problem, it's just something dreamed up by the EU to pay millions to superannuated software engineers Jester

My wife drives a 2010 CR-V and has the same issue in the USA.  She changed the display and ignores it; uses her mobile device for most things, rendering the Honda NAV system irrelevant long ago (except the radio!).

Agreed, like most in-car Satnavs from that era, they all seem to become outdated pretty quickly.
