Show time and date during screen off in Jeep Grand Cherokee

One of the features that many Jeep Grand Cherokee owners may not be aware of is the ability to display the time and date even when the screen is off. This can be a convenient feature, especially when you quickly need to check the time or date without having to turn on the screen. In this article, we will guide you through the steps to enable this feature on the center screen of your Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Access the Vehicle Menu

To begin, start by tapping the “Vehicle” option on the bottom category bar of the center screen. This will open the vehicle settings menu, where you can make various adjustments and configurations.


Open Settings

Once you are in the Vehicle menu, look for the “Settings” option in the top right corner of the screen. Tap on it to access the settings menu, where you can customize different aspects of your Jeep Grand Cherokee.

Select Clock & Date

In the settings menu, you will find a list of options to personalize your vehicle’s settings. Look for the “Clock & Date” option in the left-hand menu and tap on it. This will open the clock and date settings page, where you can make adjustments related to time and date display.

Enable Time and Date During Screen Off

On the clock and date settings page, you will see various options to customize how the time and date are displayed. Among these options, you will find “Show Time and Date During Screen Off.” This is the setting you need to enable to display the time and date even when the screen is off.

Choose Your Preference

Once you select the “Show Time and Date During Screen Off” option, you will be presented with two available choices: “On” and “Off.” By default, this feature is set to “Off,” which means the time and date will not be displayed when the screen is off. To activate the feature, select “On.”

Enjoy Time and Date Display

After enabling the “Show Time and Date During Screen Off” feature, you can now exit the settings menu. From now on, whenever the screen of your Jeep Grand Cherokee is turned off, the time and date will be displayed, allowing you to quickly glance at them without the need to turn on the screen.

By following these simple steps, you can easily enable the time and date display during screen off on your Jeep Grand Cherokee. This feature can be particularly useful when driving or when you want to check the time without waking up the entire screen. With the ability to access the time and date effortlessly, you can stay informed and in control while on the go.


Remember that the steps outlined in this article are specific to the Jeep Grand Cherokee model and may vary slightly for different vehicle models or software versions. If you encounter any difficulties or if your screen does not have the mentioned options, it is advisable to consult the vehicle’s user manual or contact your Jeep dealership for further assistance.

Hi Nabeel,
In your “Show time and date during screen off in Jeep Grand Cherokee” article, you showed a picture of a 2023 Grand Cherokee screen for the checkbox setting. How do you find the setting for older models such as the 2022 Grand Cherokee which has a different screen setup?

Thanks,
John H.
