This happened on both the '89 200Q and the '91 V8-- intermittent both
times. On the '89 200Q, dealer replaced board computer under warranty.
Ned Ritchie later said it might have been a connector. On the V8 it
occurred, too, and when I had to replace the clock _again_ (wouldn't
set) cleaned all the connections to the dash and coated w/ ProGold.
It's been several weeks since then, and so far, so good.
BTW, the ProGold samples Caig sent were on wipes, so I'll punt the
'93 90 CS UnQ
