I need to add my 05 ZX4 to the cars that have this weird electrical problem. When my daughter is driving the clicking will start, the clock and radio stations will reset and the engine acts like it wants to turn off, lurches etc. This continues till she parks and then after letting it cool off the car will start and not do this. Sounds to me like a really bad ground. I will check the fuses when she brings the car to me on Friday. But if the car ain't acting up when I pull a fuse or tweak a ground wire, how am I going to know the culprit?
