How do I adjust the clock in my Porsche?
Editor’s note: If you’ve ever asked the question, “ How do I adjust the clock in my Porsche ”, you’ve come to the right place. This illustrated guide will step you through the whole process.
If you live in Colorado, re-setting the clock in your Porsche is necessary at least a couple of times a year. Always remember to “Spring Ahead” and “Fall Back”. When the time comes to make this change, it might also be a good time to think about preparing your car for the change of seasons. Do you have the proper tires? Need new wiper blades? Prestige Imports can help get your car ready to roll through the up-coming season.To set or re-set the clock in your Porsche, you will need to access the vehicle’s Multi-Function display and either the rotary knob on the multi-function steering wheel or the control lever on the lower right side of the steering column. To ensure your safety during this procedure, please pull over, place the car in “Park” and engage the parking brake.
This process applies to all Panamera and new 911 Carrera models, along with Cayenne, Boxster, and Cayman vehicles, equipped with PCM including Navigation.
