Clock stopped

Sometime last night between 10pm and 9am, the clock in my Niro HEV stopped.
The display looks like --:-- and the Time/Date button in setup is grayed out.
Has this happened to anyone else?

Strange occurrence.
I went out to the store around 3pm, and the clock was functioning again.
No sign there was any issue.

Can it be a battery problem ? like in the days when you take out the battery of the car and after plug it in, you had to refresh the time on the radio! ..

Clock Not Working

Have a 2017 and the clock stopped working. Only option in clock settings is gps time, none of the other options work. The digital display shows - - : - - . Anyone have a fix for this?

Yesterday my clock was set to feb 23 2036
I manually changed it to the correct time. The next time I started the car the display was - -: - - and now I’m looking navel to change it manually

What year is your car? Does it have Nav? There was a GPS network update a month or so ago that caused many devices (not just cars) to display an incorrect date. I believe there is a firmware update that corrects the issue.

I addressed this in the other post. There was a GPS network update a short while ago that caused issues for devices that weren't prepared for the update. It affected more than just cars. I believe Kia has a firmware update that addresses the issue.

The GPS update could be responsible, but there is a bug that can also cause it. The reset button (at about 5 o’clock by the volume knob) may work but a definitive fix is disconnecting the 12 volt battery for a couple minutes.

Same thing happened with me. I just checked carguru forum and there are about 20 post of this happening to Kia cars., not just Niro's. Has Kia responded with an answer yet?

Just noticed mine doesnt show the time either. How do you do the firmware update mine says memory full when I try the update. I use CarPlay most of the time and that shows a clock.

Niro clock problem

I had to have my windshield replaced yesterday. When I got it back the clock read —/—. I opened the clock but the date/time is grayed out and will not open. The other buttons (except military time) work. Any thoughts?

To the best of my knowledge it's a dealer only update. But if someone else knows if it can be downloaded and installed by the owner, please let us know.

This just got mine on HE. Left knee pull fuse cover. Look at center of fuses you'll see a on/off button just left of the on button you'll see two 15A fuses the top one the 3rd one down is the Multimedia fuse or flip fuse box cover over and you'll see it. I pulled the fuse powered on car without cranking it navi screen didn't come on turned car off put fuse back in the powered car on again and after navi came on for about 20 secs the clock came back on. This worked for me as of right now.

Adjust bass and treble again nothing else was lost. Bluetooth phone, preset stations stayed.
