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.

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.
make sure spark plugs and wires been replaced.replace distributor cap and rotor.replace fuel filter in the carburetor in let nut to fuel line.also check carburetor automatic choke plate make it closed during start up and open as engine warm up.but the choke need to closed when you first start engine up in the morning. i had same car years back you had to pump accelerator pedal twice then start engine. had be careful easy flood out carb engines.
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.
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
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.
