97 Nissan Maxima Clock Resetting and Changing Time On Its Own

I have a 97 Nissan Maxima and have never had any problems with it. In the last couple of weeks, every time I get in my car and start it, the LED clock on the dash is set to a different time. Each time I manually change it and reset it to the correct time, but again, the next time I get in my car and start it, the time has changed itself again and it's off. I just found this really strange since I have never experienced this before. Is there any reason this could be happening? Is this something I should be worried about...(i.e.- other problems to come, and this is a precursor)? What can I do to fix this whether or not this is a serious problem, cause it is really annoying? Thank you for your help!

2003 Nissan Maxima SE tachometer clock

Its not a clock its just calculates the time it took to make trip. The display at the bottom of the tachometer area is a "TRIP COMPUTER". It shows OUTSIDE AIR TEMPERATURE, DISTANCE TO EMPTY, AVERAGE FUEL COMSUMPTION, AVERAGE SPEED and JOURNEY TIME. Press the "TRIP" button on the steering wheel to change through the modes. Holding the "TRIP" button for more than one second will reset the mode.

96 Maxima starting problem

Does it help if you cycle key on and off a couple of times first, and then try start ? (not to start, just to on position a couple of times.) If that helps, changing fuel filter may cure problem, otherwise, have fuel pressure tested, pump may be getting weak.

Well, it is usually cheaper then having a shop do it for you. But it will require you to have some tools. In this case probable a 10mm and 5/8 spark plug socket and 6 inch extension and ratchet.

Other than that, you should be good to go.
