Radio Clock Losing Time

The radio clock on my 2004 Ram loses time when the truck is parked up. I do not notice it losing time if I drive it each day but, leave it for a week or so (riding motorcycle back and forward to work) and it loses again. Lost over half an hour in a week. Anyone have any idea why this should happen?

Welcome to HTC Dave!!!
I'm guessing your out of warranty.
Wish I had an answer for you but not the case. Maybe someone a little smarter than I am will be able to help you out.
Enjoy the site.

This is the first time someone has had a problem with the radio clock losing time... how's the battery charge?

The battery appears perfectly OK and starts the truck first turn of the key every time. Surely the current drain of a radio clock would be miniscule?
