2014 Patriot Clock Loses Time

We have a 2014 Patriot Sport with the most basic AM-FM-CD radio. The radio clock keeps losing time, a few minutes each week. My wife keeps resetting it. Have others had this problem? If so, how did you cure it?

Thanks for any ideas,
Harold

Yeah, always have it fall behind.
My fix is setting the correct time every couple months.

Truckin' the bread all over your @$$!

Yes, we have the same problem. I have to advance it a minute or two every month. Did it just yesterday. I think that's the first time since the change to DST so maybe its been a couple months. Why this happens is beyond me. I doubt there is a cure.

losing time usually correlates with battery issues for me
bad battery or bad connection

My 2008 Patriot ran the original battery till about 200,000. Never had a clock issue. The clocks in both my 2014 Patriot and 2011 Wrangler have lost time since new; both are still on their original batteries.

My 15 Patriot clock loses time, I just add a few minutes in my head for the correct, non-Patriot time.

I just updated the time in my wife's 2014. FCA replaced the alternator last year. I'll see if it looses any time. Oem battery I believe.

Time drifts such that it's running slow on my UConnect 130 radio as well (2015 Patriot w/ High Altitude trim 4x4).

-2015 Patriot High Altitude 4x4. * tow hooks * Class III hitch. Bone stock, otherwise.

2012. Time lost has happened from Day 1. About 2-3 minutes a month. Never had alt or battery issues. Replaced my perfectly working battery this past January after 7 years and clock works exactly the same way. I call it character.

2012 FDII WHITE SPORT

Given the fact that gravity negatively impacts time I wouldn't worry too much about it lol.
