Hondas Hit By 2022 Bug


Pretty much all 2008 - 2013 model year Hondas and Accuras have a feature where the navigation clock rolled back to the year 2002 at the start of the year 2022.

The Honda engineers wrote code that created an address space that is too small to accommodate enough weeks. The GPS time clocks count time in weeks from 2002 and the engineers allocated only 1024 bytes. When the register hits its upper limit it rolls over to 0 and so the clock thinks it's 2002 all over again!  Btw, 1024 weeks is roughly 19.69 years.
