    Incorrect Date?

    Hi, went to attempt a Service Regeneration today and VCDS had an update to V20.4.0 which went smoothly.
    Fired up the car and ran a diagnosis and a Service Regeneration which worked up to a point, but that is a question for another day.
    However, on checking the log it comes up with a date of: 2047.14.9 which knowing the USA way of showing dates is 9th April 2047, why has it come up with this date? No issues before the update.

    Code:
    Thursday,02,April,2020,17:22:30:08428

    VCDS Version: 20.4.0.1 (x64)  HEX-V2 CB: 0.4508.4

    "Ever Since the Update", eh?

    Do you have a data from a previous version, done the same way (apparently outside of an Auto-Scan), with this same fault code, that shows the date correctly?

    In some cases, the date data in freeze-frames is an offset rather than an absolute value, and if VCDS doesn't have the correct base-value, then the date shown will be incorrect. There are a number of other reasons why the date in freeze-frames can be incorrect as well.

    If the date in a freeze-frame is obviously implausible, ignore it and look at the mileage instead.

    Unfortunately no I don't but what I can do tomorrow is run a scan on one of my other cars and see what happens? Up to now usually only ran an Autoscan as I haven't had it long and just starting to get into a bit deeper

    I've had this as well but in my case it was 2042.14.28.

    I've also had 2000.00.00 come up on certain modules a few times.

    It seemed to coincide with the battery being a bit low on charge and various lights on the dash being lit. I've read posts by other people on various forums about their dashboard being lit up like a Christmas Tree and all the problems going away once the battery was charged so I've always ignored it.
