stupid question - change time on clock?

OK this is dumb and I hate myself for having to ask. I have the regular stock radio on my Pat (no touchscreen). I know how to change the hours but how do I change the minutes? I've read the instructions and I can't get it to work. thanks!

I've never had to change the minutes, just the hour twice a year.

Me neither but mine is behind. At first it was only 1-2 minutes now it's over 5 minutes.

You can download the manual for free from Jeep.com. I just had to do this a couple days ago for the first time. Mine updated for DST automatically. Must be something with the sat radio, but the minutes were 5 off. Might have been like that right off the lot.

I have to change the time on a regular basis...

I thought it was strange when I picked up the Pat, the sales guy told someone to make sure it's topped up with gas and the time is adjusted. But a few months later, it gets behind by about 2-3 minutes every month.

I have the manual and have followed the directions. After I adjust the hour I can't get to the minutes. I guess I'll be stuck being 5 minutes late.

So you push the "tune" knob, but it doesn't switch to the minutes?

Sounds like you might have a defective radio.

Does it work when you are in radio mode? (push the knob to select bass,treble, etc.)

Mine switches from summer to winter time automaticaly!! It did the same on my Caliber ( I hope the Avenger is the same ) I think the UK Spec Radio is RDS & the clock is connected to the Atomic Clock. Just as we can get watches & DVD/Video players that do the same .

I have a weird thing happens every few weeks or so. Without any warning the clock changes to read 20:16. No other time, and no matter what time of the day it really is. Out of the blue, 20:16. It stays like that for about twenty minutes then changes back to the proper time.

When I got mine the time was off by a few minutes and it didn't adjust for summer time by itself. The fix was to go in to the radio settings and change the home time to the RDS setting. The clock is now spot on. (This works in Scotland but I don't know about other countries.)
