After getting gas yesterday, i go to start the car, turn the key to acc, guages, radio etc all work, turn the key to ON and everything goes off(including clock being reset to 1:00) no clicking, nothing.

thoughts?

inspect and clean your battery cables.... like take them off and sand a little to get them nice and shiny.

then I'd go threw and check all fuses dealing with starter/ignition. remove them and look

was the RED "SECURITY" light lit up and/or flashing?

If I were in your shoes I would check the battery cables and terminals for corrosion, as previously stated. If all seems well in that department, I would check the alternator connections as well. If the problem is not there, it is likely your ignition switch.

I've had this happen on my GA several times over the years and can almost guarantee it's the battery cable connections. Sometimes just taking them off the battery terminals and reconnecting is enough to fix it.

and take the battery in for a charge/test from a parts store, may be a bad cell in the battery.
