Default 96 Accord - ABS Light Comes on, Radio shuts off, Clock resets...???

Hi,

I have a 96 Accord EX with 181k on it. For the past couple of days my car
stereo has been shutting off intermittently, like there is a short
somewhere. At first I just assumed it was a prolem with the stereo itself,
but I noticed last night that the ABS light comes on and whatever the event
that causes this to happen also shuts off the stereo for a few seconds. The
ABS light goes off for a few minutes and then comes back on, shutting off
the stereo again and the cycle repeats.

When I was pulling in my driveway last night it seemed like the headlights
flickered ever so slightly, but I can't be sure I wasn't just imagining the
barely perceptable change. But when I went to start the car this morning,
the clock had reset and the ABS/radio issue was more frequent. I also
noticed that when I shut the car off the power locks didn't work the first
time I tried them. I waited a minute or two and then they worked fine, but
obviously I am concerned about this and am hoping someone can offer some
insight into what the problem/fix might be. I checked the fuses and the
all seemed to be okay. Any help would be HUGELY appreciated!

Cheers,
Virtual Elvis

First thing I'd check is the battery cables (most specifically the ground
cable) and the batteries over all condition (age, load, voltage at rest and
with car running). Low battery issues can be tricky and seem random.

Good Advice. I agree.
