First thing i would check is battery posts and cable connections. Also check the cables for damage. If they are shorting out somewhere it would cause this, and the fact that your clock is suffering from an interrupted power supply really points to that.

It starts, but why are all the service lights on the dashboard lit up?


Usually it indicates the alternator is not charging. Get yourself a volt meter that plugs into the cigarette lighter. Read the voltage before and after you tart the car. The voltage should go up from 12v to 13/14v. Keep an eye on it. If it slowly goes down, then the alternator needs to be checked.
