Have you checked / cleaned the battery posts lately?
For some reason they're really bad on these cars.
If you haven't already, I would go buy some electrical contact grease, a wire brush, and a pair of felt strips that are made to cover battery posts. You can get that stuff at basically any auto store.
Remove the battery cables from the battery posts, brush the posts and the cable clamps till all that white corosion is cleaned off. Slide the felt strips down onto the posts, put a layer of the contact grease on the posts and cable clamps. Put the clamps back on the posts and tighten them down. Double check the layer of grease. And finally wrap the felt strips (which were on the posts before you replaced the clamps) around the top of the clamps.
After you reset your clock, you are all done and wont need to worry about those pesky connections for a while. But I still check them every six months just to be shure.
