On MY 2017, I expect d the time to automatically adjust to day light savings.
In the setting the time, there is an option for auto set but I can't seem to uncheck off-manual option.
Is anyone else having this issue?
Needless to say I set the time manually.

Mine changed on my 2017 Volt, but not on our 2016 Equinox. Odd.

I have the same problem as the OP. My clock did not auto-set, I had to change it manually. When I follow this menu path, after choosing auto set there is a button for manual that is ticked. Pressing the button does not remove the tick, holding it down doesn't remove the tick, there's no way to uncheck the manual set option, and there's no other option listed.

It must be a bug. Once manual-off is checked it can't be unchecked. The manual says something about an active OnStar session for autoset to work, but even OnStar doesn't know what that means.

Same here.

It's quite a tease for GM to show us the option but not have any way to change it.

Sorry to raise the dead with this post, but I was just curious if anyone has found an answer to this bug? I just bought a new 2017 Premeier and was going through my settings when I accidentally checked the 'set manually' box. Needless to say I've never been able to get it back. The worst part is that the box was definitely unchecked before I hit it by accident. I'm assuming I'm stuck since it appears this is a software bug, but maybe someone's come up with a solution. Considering trying a factory reset on the infotainment system and seeing if that brings it back, has anyone tried this?

I even called OnStar as the manual says an OnStar connection must be active to set auto, but they had no idea what I was talking about. I can't believe they don't use auto-updates from the GPS unit or connected smartphone.

I just made the same mistake -- I accidentally checked the 'set manually' box and now it's forever checked. JATO757, did you ever find a way to uncheck the box without taking your car into the shop?

Since it appears that auto was the default setting, is there a way to go back to the factory settings and not have that checked?

Looking at the manual, it suggests that the Auto Time comes from OnStar. Do you have an active OnStar account?

Yes, there is a 'Restore Vehicle Settings' and a 'Restore Radio Settings' option that I found. Unfortunately, neither one had any effect upon this particular setting :-(

Yes, I do have the Basic OnStar plan plus 'Stolen Vehicle Assistance'. I regularly use the MyChevrolet smart phone app to interact with my car, so there's definitely connectivity there that the car could be using...
