Clock malfunction

Postby ALO604 » Sat Nov 23, 2019 12:38 am

This is odd. 2010 V6 LE with backup camera. No Navi.
The clock keeps loosing its time setting after key off parked. I set it and it's fine while driving around.

All of a sudden my clock starts keeping time again. But I can't set any radio presets now.

It sounds like an internal failure of the head unit. There are a number of places that repair Nissan Bose head units, including Bose Corp. You can check with Bose about the cost of repairs or do a Google search for "Nissan Bose radio repair" and you'll find several places that repair these units.

I was having this same problem earlier this year. Since I am still under extended warranty, I took it to my dealership for service. They determined the battery needed replacement and recommended I change it asap.
I was skeptical but upon changing the battery, the problem is gone -- no more issue with clock / presets.

I had this problem too.
My dealer told me over $2000 to fix.
I traded the car :(

Did they tell you what needed replacing for $2000? I'm just curious.

For $2000, it was likely the head unit. It would be much cheaper to remove the head unit and send it out for repair.

They wanted to replace the unit for $2200 parts plus labor..... but i was not savvy enough back then to just get it fixed.
