Starting Issues / Clock Fluctuates


Recommended Posts

SC400, 1994, 120K miles

This has been happening for a few months now:

- on a cold start, like when starting first thing in the morning (irresp of summer or winter), I need to crank it twice, sometime three times before the car start. Very consistent. (Haven't got the battery checked but should this weekend or next for cranking amps)

- However, the more bizarre thing is that, over the past month or two, the clock changes time during starts (irrespective of one crank or two or more). This is very intermittent -- maybe happens once every 2-3 days. The clock always resets to 1:00. I am not sure, but I think it happened once when I was driving the car too (but perhaps this has got to my head -- since I don't bother to set the time anymore, I might be wrong there).

Anyways, that's the data. Any thoughts?

Thanx in advance.
