Stopped by the grocery store. When I came out. Car would not start. No interior lights, nothing on the dash. No clicking of the battery. Someone jumped me off. Started right up after hooking up the jumper cables. Clock needed reset. Driving home seemed like the transmission was not shifting right. Got home turned on AC, radio and accessories. Did not do anything like dim lights or anything. Got home from work today cranks right up. Thanks, Ed

This is typical of a dirty or loose battery cable. Start with the two battery cable clamps, then also follow the smaller positive battery wire to the under-hood fuse box. Be sure that connection is clean and tight. It is a common source of trouble for this symptom on most car brands.
