Changing the time in Chevy cars, trucks, SUVs
One of the more unsung events of the autumn season is the end of daylight saving time. We finally get back that precious hour of sleep we’re forced to give up each spring. Daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday (Nov. 6). Most people forget and spend an otherwise fruitful Sunday morning being confused about the time and resetting clocks all over the house. Because of the amount of time we spend in our vehicles, having an accurate clock is paramount. If you need to set the clock in your GM vehicle for daylight savings (either end of it), most models use the same set of steps. If you have problems, please come to the Don Wheaton showroom and we will help you out.
NOTE: If you have a subscription to OnStar, the time in your vehicle should automatically change on its own.

Things you probably didn’t know about Daylight Saving Time
- William Willett of England first proposed that British clock should move forward 80 minutes between April and October.
- Despite it’s intent of saving on energy costs, daylight saving time has proved inconclusive at best in this regard over the years.
- Saskatchewan never changes its time and always adheres to whatever central time is at the moment.
- China covers eight time zones yet only uses one time set eight hours ahead of Greenwhich Mean Time, all year long.
