I had a very strange thing happen with my Mustang yesterday. When I tried to start it in the morning, it didn't want to start. Turned over but made a grinding noise. Second time got it started but I had to hold the key longer than usual and it made the noise again. Clock and pre-set stations are wrong. When I tried to start it at lunch, the same thing happened.
Got home, told my husband and started it to show him, started fine. After lunch, headed back to work, started fine. Stopped at post office, started fine. My husband came to my office when it was time for me to get off work (thought maybe the issue would resurface after it had sat for a few hours), started fine.
While he was in it, he turned the radio off. I started it up, turned the radio back on and, here's the really weird part, all my pre-set stations were back. Not only that, the time on my clock was correct and I hadn't set it back an hour for the time change.
Anyone else have this happen or have any ideas?

The one thing I've always had going for me was people's low expectations. Nobody ever expects a whole hell of a lot from me.
