Honda and Acura Cars Hit By Y2K22 bug: Vehicle clocks Go back to 2002

We had already reported in the last few days about the various effects of the year 2022 error, also known as Y2K22. It has now become known that many Honda drivers complain about the bug of the year because their vehicle clocks have been reset.

Chaos is inevitable: Honda is affected by the year 2022 bug. As far as is currently known, numerous models from Honda and their luxury brand Acura are affected. The navigation system clock will be reset to January 1, 2002, without it being possible to change this. That reports that Verve Times online magazine and quotes the various reports from drivers used in the Honda and Acura forums. The problem appeared right at the turn of the year and showed an incorrectly set date from January 1st. Honda and Acura owners report that the Y2K22 bug affects almost all older vehicles, including the Honda Pilot, Odyssey, CRV, Ridgeline, Odyssey, and Acura MDX, RDX, CSX, and TL models.

Cause unclear

Now you can wonder what exactly went wrong at Honda. At Microsoft, which encountered the year 2022 error with Exchange, the delivery of e-mails was affected because the data was stored in an int32 variable that can only hold a maximum value of 2,147,483,647. However, dates in 2022 have a minimum value of 2,201,010,001 for January 1, 2022, at midnight, causing the software to crash.

The same error can basically affect Honda and Acura vehicles. Curiously, however, Honda Customer Service has come forward saying that the problem should be fixed automatically in August 2022, which suggests that it could be a different problem. “Yes, we are very sorry for the problem you have with your vehicle. We have referred the problem with the NAVI watch to our technical team, who have informed us that the problem will occur from January 2022 to August 2022 and is ongoing then fixes it by itself, “Honda customer service told a car owner, Bleeping computer reported.
