Check fuse #9 (5 amp.) and replace if blown

It provides constant power to the on-board computer (OBC).

With only ignition-switched power the time and trip meter both get reset when ignition turned off.

Fues may have blown from a spike when new battery was connected up, or from a prior jump start.

This has been reported several times here, all 2006 models - but I can't see that is anything but coincidence.
