How to Change Time on JVC Radio

Many people underestimate the importance of having a built-in clock inside the car radio.

Yes, you can see time on your phone as well. But it wouldn’t be safe to do so while you’re driving. And many times phone’s battery gets fully drained if you’re on a long journey.

Under such circumstances, being able to see the time right on your car radio can be handy.

Although the time on such clocks is mostly accurate, it can get out of sync due to several issues such as an old battery, loose ignition, or a blown fuse.

Whatever the issue is, changing the time on a JVC radio is not too lengthy. All you need to do is follow the steps below.
