Hello,

I have an RTC module which is integrated in an arduino shield (touchscreen shield) I can set the time and save it , but the time is not running , the problem is not the code because this is the code of someone with which it worked. What connection in the RTC module takes care of running the time?

Sorry - couldn't help it !

You need to program the enable bit in the RTC if you want its clock to run.

But I know the rtc program is good, its an hardware problem . ;)

Is there an on-board 3v battery? If so, try resetting it / replacing it.

No, there is no battery yet, could this be the solution to get my time running?

Yes that would be it.  For now, put a copper penny in the battery socket and it will work (except you'll lose the time when you turn the power off.)

I did it but it didn't work , the time keeps standing still, any other options?

In that case it's the old mantra of 'post your code, post a photo / schematic'!
