Toyota Solara aka Camary clock running slow

I have a 2004 Toyota Solara. I have had the car since it was new and now have 144k on her. She has been an excellant car in every way, and still has plenty of life left in her.

The clock has always kept good time, however it would gain a couple of minutes a month. Now, out of the blue, the clock is loosing time. A couple minutes a day. Very strange. I have gotten used to relying on this clock and losing that much every day and really through my time off for appointments and such.

Has anyone else ran into this issue with older Camary's or Solara's?

Anyone have an idea of what it costs to replace the factory clock that comes with these cars. It is not part of the radio, it is a stand alone clock that sits atop the dash with other info windows beside it (mileage left on tank, MPG etc).

The clock itself might be cheap but what you have to go through to install it might be the kicker.

My Prius has it in the dashboard projection display.Get a stick on Casio clock and forget about it. This coming from the guy who never resets his truck for DST.

Found some on eBay under $50. But they were a 2002, 2003 and 2005.
All were different looking. Now as far as installation...........I have no clue
Good luck with that

my truck is the same way Muley. Only because I do not know how to set the dang thing. It is an aftermarket fancy ass radio and I don't care enough to look up how to change it. It stays on DST year round.

No thanks to the casio stick on. I'll find some other solution.

There is a chance the module comes off from the top. If so this might not be to bad. I eyeballed it a little today but have not dug into it any further than that.
