Daylight Savings Time – Tips For Changing Your Honda Clock Settings

March 8th, 2012 by

Are you just as surprised as we are that Daylight Savings Time is this weekend? That’s right, on Sunday March 11th, we loose an hour but gain an extra hour of daylight in the evening.

The 2010 Honda CR-V has similar clock settings as most 2012 Accords and older Honda vehicles that don’t come with the Honda Navigation System or the intelligent Multi-Information Display (i-MID) control feature.

Need help setting a clock on a different Honda? The Patty Peck Honda Service Center is just a drive or phone call away 800-748-8676 and would be glad to help.
