Happened just as it was getting dark yesterday and I haven't had a chance to look at it yet. The clock would come on intermittently and each time I started the car the radio would play for a couple seconds. Anyone else experience this strange behavior?
It sounds like the sudden deceleration (mechanical) triggered your electrical issue. I would check to make sure your battery connections and the battery tie-down is snug. If they were loose, a sudden shift in battery position could cause some itermittent electrical issues.
