Clock Reset Itself to Zero

Post by keitht » Fri Oct 19, 2018 9:58 am

When I started the car this morning I noticed the clock was reading zero, it then started running from zero. At the first opportunity I set the time and it seems OK after turning the ignition off a few times.

Has anybody else noticed this? I have not disconnected the battery, or done anything out of the ordinary.

A couple of times the clock has shown an hour behind when on GPS,but has reset. Can go into settings and select manual. 🙂.

It did it again this morning, but when I went to reset it I noticed the date was ok.

Has nobody else had this happen?

I just had this happen to me this morning. Date was still okay, radio settings were also remembered, but time was reset and also the recent driving data was reset. Owned the car for almost a year now, first time it did this.

This has happened twice to me. This morning the clock was 45min slow, date correct, all running data cleared to zero with the exception of total milage. Radio was fine. First time around everything reset itself. I thought it was me and some dumbfounded sequence of pressing sterring wheel buttons. This time I noticed from the moment I put the key in the ignition.
Any answers?

My clock set itself to zero again overnight, so I talked to my dealer who said SEAT were aware and “working on a solution” he also said it happened on the Ibiza as well. He also said make sure the clock is set to manual and not GPS.

My DSG Xllence Lux started today with clock and all mpg settings back to zero.
Seat dealer said that they are aware of a developing issue which is limited to certain batches (mine new from factory Aug 2018)
They are seeking details of symptoms and vehicle activity around the relevant times.

My problems (maybe not related) started two days ago with the SatNav trying to divert me, because of overnight roadworks, but it was the middle of the day. Was it seeing a failing clock time?

Then when I went to reset the time, the menu advised me that I was not on GPS time setting but Manual time setting. This had also changed.
Not sure what else may have changed but Seat dealer said 'nothing to worry about' and could I please give them updates to help build up a database of faults symptoms and possible causes.
They also asked for my mileage (which just turned 6500 on fully functioning odometer). Maybe the problem is 'built in' to the software around a time or mileage?
If you have these issues, please make sure that you report this to your Seat dealer.
