Car stalled and is not retaining any DIC memory

My car stalled this morning twice, once started I realized that the clock was reset to 12am and no memory had been retained?!?!? I just had the battery replaced 2 days ago so i dont think thats the problem.while i was driving I reprogram the express up feature and my DIC unit shut completely off and erased the memory on the DIC unit again... ALSO it keeo reading NO RANGE on the Fuel Distance readout and then as I drive it slowly starts adding the rangee I have left to drive on the amount of gas i have left in the tank.

You need to have it hook to a computer to read the problem, it seems to me the computer in the car is causing you the issues.

Battery dead - car will not start or be jumped started


Change the battery. Newer batteries sometimes go all at once, and are so dead even a jump start won't work. It has happened to me twice. Once you put in the new battery check the alt output with a volt meter should read about 14.5 volts at the battery. If it does problem solved just reset the clock, radio etc.

2003 Toyota camry stalled at red light once and is now running fine. Should I worry


Does not sound serious as long as the car otherwise seems to be doing what it should. Don't drive if the engine is running hot or it is leaking fluids. Start with fuel filter or faulty fuel pump. Could be other things but if the car has had regular servicing then should not be anything major eg broken breather hoses . I would get a mechanical inspection for piece of mind.

Mercedes s550 clock


Hi Aamer, Salaam, When the vehicle has the ignition switched off the visible readout is also turned off but power feeds the clock memory. Once you restart the vehicle the visible read out is illuminated and the figures become visible. If however the clock needs to be reset each time you start the vehicle, that means that the power feeding the memory of the clock has failed, which usually means a broken cable or a bad contact. Regards and Shalom John

04 elantra stalls when cold


No codes would point to fuel problem such as low pressure.
Was the car left overnight at the shop so it would be a cold start for the mechanic ?

Radio resets when car is turned off


There is a yellow wire in the harness coming out of the head unit, this should be connected to a constant power. This circut maintains power to the head unit for the clock and memory.
The red wire should be connected to a source that is turned on and off with the key switch.
