I have a 2002 Impala LS 3800 V6 and I am having electrical problems.
Only sometimes my stock radio clock resets when I start the car.
Lately my car is having trouble starting as well.
It’s giving me signs that my battery maybe low charged. Not quite sure!
What is going on? Can any 1 HELP???

first try to check on the light, if no light then try to pull some coke, yes i mean soda, on the positive n negative charge of the battery to clean out the corrosion that build up around it. if that doesn't work, then u'll need a new battery.

Batteries typically last 5 years. You could check your battery cable connections, if they are good, you may just need to buy a new battery.

Most auto part stores or even Wal-Mart or Sears will do a free battery check. So if unable to resolve by cleaning the terminals and connectors do have the battery tested. Personally when I have to change the battery I prefer to go with the highest amp rating that will fit the battery compartment. This gives you better cold weather starting and helps if you have to jumpstart someone else.
