    This is the second time it happened, so I wasn't as freaked out as I was the first time.
    My battery was disconnected by the dealer to perform the Toyota Safety Connect recall. When the battery gets disconnected, the only data that is lost is time of day (clock needs to be reset).
    I reset the time and noticed that the date was off by one day. My car was telling me that it was yesterday.
    I double-checked AM/PM and went around the digital clock a couple of times - but nothing would advance the date to the correct setting.
    The solution? Patience.
    After a day or two of three, the date magically fixed itself. Must be a software setting that keeps people from mis-setting the calendar for nefarious reasons.

    Are you on 12 hour clock, it could be changing at mid day instead of midnight.
    Edit: scrub that, I just noticed you said you checked the AM/PM setting. Have you tried it on 24hr mode ?

    It fixed itself. No issues anymore - that was the point of the post.
