    every few weeks my clock in my a3 decides to lose the time and date,:keule:

    just today i parked her up and returned a hour later to find on driving i look down and my clock says 0:29 and the date was showing 05.12.08,, thats 2 days out.. this has happened about 3 times now,, its got me baffled :blink:

    any one else had this problem?

    It could be a connection on the cluster. Does the trip computer or the DIS reset itself too?

    What about your stereo, is that affected at all??

    Seems like it could be a loose connection....

    I think if its just the clock, I think it will be an internal fault with the cluster, probably not worth the cost of replacing. Maybe it will have logged a fault for Vagcom etc?
