Just wondering if anyone else has any prob's with their interior clock? I think our's must have a loose wire somewhere as it lose's time badly. Sometime's it's on othertimes it's black. You can bring it back with a fist on the top of the dash which makes me think that it is a connection or wire.

Thanks

Scott

Hi Scott,

yes, it's a known issue. If you head over and become a member at ClubVR4 they have a guide on how to fix it. It basically a case of pulling it out and re-soldering some joints.

cheers

There is a thread on here all about it ... Search is our best freind ...

I just pulled mine out and played with the connections that go to the plug and it seems to be ok now.

.... years of corrosion on the wires!

:(
Actually the cause is usually dry solder joints, although there's some suggestion that the capacitors may have dried out too (which is what causes them to lose time even if they never appear to go off). In rare cases it could just be caused by loose or corroded connections, but that's not the cause most people are reporting.

its dry solder joins nothing more..

i recondition them and sell them on, done 20-30 so far,
nothing more than a re-solder on the joins is needed
