    Process of resetting your clock to correct time/time zone. Little trick is to tap the clock on center console three times. Bwamo, done :)
    Thanks to Kyle @ Highland Park Service center for this little trick!

    Excellent tip! Mine had been wrong for a few weeks and I had been procrastinating making a call to the SC.
    Thanks!

    Wow, nice and thank you! That's missing in the manual as far as I can tell.

    Wow, nice find, I wonder if that came with a recent software update? 6 months ago, I had to have a service engineer remotely access my car to fix the time. This definitely should be in the "Things you didn't know" thread.

    islandbayy,

    I live in the central time zone, however I live very close to the eastern time zone so this part of the area lives on eastern time zone. that being said, when my model s was delivered the time was set for the central time zone. does this trick allow me to set the clock or does it just re-set the clock (if that makes sense)?

    It
    It should set the clock to the time zone you are in based on GPS. If it's not self-updating on location, or being erratic, this can "force" it in a sense to check and update. Though, I will admit, I have not done it while being very close to the time zone border. Just when the car decided to be off a bit.

    It worked like magic, thanks! I was however, in the EST zone when I did it so you are probably correct that it was based on GPS.
