Electrical Problem


I have a funny electrical problem in my Cobalt 2008.
The car was acting up all day with rough idol,
the time on the clock changed and the last 3-4 times
when I started the car with the remote-control the starter clicked
twice and it started strange.. The fifth time it did not start at all
and became completely dead (powerless)..
I waited for few minutes, everything came back by itself
and I was able to start the car.
Before all this happened, sometimes (recently) the speedometer was flashing
with no key in the car.
Now is back to normal.. until next time. This problem never happened before.
I hope someone could help me solve this problem !

Check for loose battery terminals or/and the boost post on the fuse block.

Thank you so much for your help ,
you were right it was one of the battery terminals ,
the negative battery terminal end was broken and it was a bad connection ,
I changed it and every thing is back to normal .

Hope this info will also help some one in the future with the same problem .

thank you
