Many Honda models show the wrong time and date after the New Year

There are many owners of Honda and Acura models around the world, produced from 2004 onwards, who report that from the New Year, the date and time of their car are wrong, with the date stuck on January 1st. 2002 and no one can adjust the time manually or automatically.

The good news is that the problem will be fixed on its own in August, but Honda is looking for a way to fix it sooner.

The problem is not found in the 8th and 9th generation Civics, as well as in the 4th generation CR-V, and owners of models affected by this bug report that while trying to manually change the time and date, the date returns to January 1st. 2002 and the time goes to a specific time, with the time displayed on the navigation system and the stereo unit not matching.

Users around the world, in various forums, are trying to find a solution to the problem and no software update seems to work, neither if one disconnects the car battery, nor if it removes the security of the infotainment system.

Honda is aware of the problem and in response to the American CRV Owners Club states:

We have escalated the issue of the navigation clock in our team of engineers and they informed us that you will face the problem from January 2022 to August 2022 and then it will be fixed automatically.

Rest assured that we will continue to monitor it and let you know if any fixes are available before this time.

Honda England for its part stated:

We have received many reports of this problem and have been informed that Honda’s technical department is currently working. Once there is a fix for this, Honda Authorized Dealers will be notified and will be able to assist you.

Therefore, it is best to check with your local Honda Authorized Dealer for updates. They will have the latest information on the problem and will be able to help when the solution is found. Those interested can also contact Honda Technical Support for further assistance if needed.

The bug is located in the way the GPS date was set on the system, 1024 weeks ago. It is essentially a problem in the GPS system and in the central unit and has appeared before in Honda models.

Specifically on August 16, 2017, the owners of Honda MY1999 – 2004 models, reported that their watches were reset to 00:00. It then took Honda 2 months to fix the problem and send upgraded DVDs to the car owners who were having the problem.
