Chevy HHR: How to Set The Clock

Setting the clock in your Chevy HHR is required after every battery change, and for some models, if you travel to a different time zone. Below, you will find the uncomplicated steps to follow to set the time on the clock.

  1. Turn the key to the ON position. Do NOT start the ignition.
  2. Press the POWER button.
  3. Press and HOLD the button with a CLOCK on it or access the clock via the MENU button.
  4. On the display, you will see HR, MIN, MM, DD, YYYY. Press the DASH buttons that are located right under each display to set the Hour, Minute, Month, Day, and Year.
  5. When you have set the time you desire, press the button with a CLOCK on it again to finalize the time.

**The correct time should now appear on your Home Screen. If so, you are all SET!

TIP: For vehicles with digital navigation screens: Turning on the GPS TIME will allow the system to automatically adjust your time dependent on your present location. This feature will change your clock when you cross into a different time zone. 

**NOTE: If you are unable to set the Time on the first try, REPEAT the steps. If you are still unsuccessful, contact the dealership for assistance or consult your vehicle user’s manual.
