    OK I just had a weird problem with my 1998 Volvo S70. I got in the car
    and put the key in, turned it over but the engine didn't start. I don't
    think the battery is dead since the dash lights up, stereo turns on,
    etc. But, my clock reset itself to 12, so i'm thinking it could maybe
    be a fuse or something? Also, I don't know if this is anything, but do
    the digital dash stats usually stay on when the car is off? I can see
    the mileage even without the key in the ignition, those are visible,
    and the light on the gear shifter is on, I don't know if this is
    related, or just normal behavior. Anyone have any ideas?

    The mileage is visible on my 98s with the key off/out. The clock
    resetting itself seems to indicate a voltage problem, try a boost.
