2011 Volkswagen Jetta TDI: Thanks, George Vernon Hudson
March 12, 2012
You'll likely be seeing more of these posts today thanks to a certain 19th Century Entomologist. Some folks mistakenly credit Benjamin Franklin for the idea of Daylight Savings, but according to those who actually do research on such things, it turns out he was merely joking around with an idea to save money on candles. It was Hudson -- and a couple World Wars -- that cause our circadian rhythms to get all messed up twice a year (unless you live in the Republic of AZ).
So, in order to reset the Jetta's clock, I thought I'd use the prominent SETUP button on the dash, then select SYSTEM, then CLOCK. Well, that wasn't right. Another trip to the owner's manual...
Oh, of course. Why didn't I think of that? The intersecting rectangles within a rectangle button casually hanging around the edge of the tachometer and the trip-reset button. I'm such an imbecile.
