Clearly those are the symptoms of a loss of electrical power. Simple things to check: the battery cables are tightly connected to the battery, and if your battery has removable caps, check the battery fluid levels. If low, fill to the proper level with distilled water. Your battery may not be fully charged. If a shop that does free battery/alternator testing is conveniently available to you (e.g. Penske auto center at a Kmart), it might be worth having them check the condition of the battery.

From what I have read on various VW forums do a search of "relay 109". That relay can be blamed for a multitude of symptoms. But since you got the car started, I'm not sure I would put it as the number one suspect.

Clock and trip meter in my 2006 jetta TDI resets every time I turn the car. Is there a solution without taking to shop?

Check your fuses. Electronic devices with memory require some power to allow them to hold the memory. The power needs to be there even when the car is turned off otherwise you will experience exactly what's happening to you.

Dash lights on and clock resets. 2003 Jetta

To fix the clock and the odometer I just had to make sure there was a fuse in both places 11 and 15. I have a standard trans and one place I thought was for auto trans instrument panel lights. But both must be there. The engine check light also went off but the airbag light is still on. I was wanting to avoid going to the dealer, but I might have to so they can reset that.

Timing belt light of Toyota LandCruiser 2006

the reset procedure of the timing belt light is all done by pressing the trip meter button and holding it in whilst the ignition is turned to on then select from the trip button then continue pressing until you come to 15 on trip metre, turn off and then restart. The light should then go off.
