Default Clock gone bad? or worse?

Suddenly the clock in my 2001 XJ8 has started to run very fast - went from keeping perfect time to gaining 5 mins/hr

Do I just have a clock that is dying or might this be indicative of a larger electrical problem?

THANKS

Sounds like a T-up clock (rare to my knowledge)....their function is quite basic and is a 24/7 circuit.

From this site (be sure to bookmark it, it will come in handy) ....JagRepair.com - Jaguar Repair Information Resource

...comes this pdf... http://www.jagrepair.com/images/Auto.../jagxj1999.pdf...

...and from that pdf, came this....

See what a hard reset might do for it. Iíve seen stranger things get fixed from a hard reset.

Over the years of owning my old Jag, I have encountered other owners who have made the process easier. These resources you have provided are awesome and will be a great help in keeping the old car running a while longer! THANKS

Disconnect negative battery cable first, then disconnect positive battery cable, touch both battery cables together for about 15 seconds to discharge residual battery voltage in all modules. Reconnect positive cable then reconnect negative cable and tighten down snug.
