How do I change the time in my Honda vehicle?

Twice a year we need to remember that we’re either gaining an hour of sleep (standard time in the fall) or losing an hour of sleep (daylight savings time in the spring). Thankfully, most of the devices we rely on the most like smartphones and smartwatches take care of this for us without a second thought. However, there are likely many of you out there with an older vehicle that doesn’t demonstrate any kind of connectivity. So, if you’re wondering, ‘How do I change the time in my Honda vehicle,’ Meridian Honda is here to help. We’re going to be using an older model Honda Accord sedan without GPS navigation as our example. Most other Honda vehicles should work the same way.

Steps to set the exact time

The first thing you will want to do is press the CLOCK button until a beep is heard, and the time starts to blink. Set the hour by pressing ‘H’ button until it’s correct; then do the same thing for the minutes by pressing the ‘M’ button. Complete the process by pressing CLOCK again to set the time.

Quick tips you might also need

If the situation calls for it, you can make large scale changes to the time displayed on your clock using a couple of shortcuts.

Set time to the nearest hour – You can set the time to the nearest hour if the displayed time is prior to the half-hour mark by pressing and holding the CLOCK button. Next, press the ‘R’ or reset button to set the time to the previous hour.

What if it’s after the half-hour – If the displayed time is past the half-hour mark, follow the same procedure and it will skip to the next hour.

EXAMPLE: If the time is 10:05, the shortcut procedure will make the clock read, 10:00. A clock that reads 10:45 will skip ahead to 11:00 using the above shortcut.

Vehicles with Honda navigation or new Honda models

If your Honda vehicle is equipped with the automaker’s native GPS navigation capability, you shouldn’t have to do anything to change the time. The clock should update automatically when the time changes on the satellite feed. However, if there is an error, you will need to refer to the navigation system’s user manual. This same thing should hold true for a vehicle with more modern connectivity equipment like Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto ™.

We understand that technology can be uncooperative. Please stop by the Meridian Honda showroom if you need a little help with any of the features offered with your Honda vehicle.

Just wanted to say "Thank you!" for verifying an issue with a tire on my daughter's 2007 Honda Civic as I was driving her from the greater Houston area to Charlotte (and her on to Virginia). The Service team was friendly, accommodating, communicative at every step and if we lived anywhere close, I'd bring vehicles in there for service. Thanks again for taking care of ... us today on our travels!
