HELP! Digital Dash Went Postal!

Background: Had car in the shop for a week(cosmetics). Key left in ignition and battery died. They charged and all was well, I thought, except clock would not hold setting.
Started car this morn and odometer has gained 6500 miles, speed indicated more than twice the speed and of course, the clock won't hold time.
Analog displays just fine, just digital out of whack. Any ideas, suggestions, etc?

Much appreciated,

I also have the same problem happen. Clock won't hold setting and now instead of mph it reads kpm.

Anyone have any ideas?

Put the key in the ignition and disconnect the battery negative cable. Tutn the key to position 1 and then turn the key to the off position. Then hook up the battery cable.

If you are still displaying metric then twist the knob to convert.
