Yikes, here is something so simple you will laugh. Disconnect the battery cable ground, leave it off for 20 minutes and reconnect. Try starting your car.Never had this on my Cadillac but had a Bonneville that acted up like that. I'd also suggest trying your other key at start up.

Every car has a different resistance key, well not evry car but random enough. The key has it marked on it. I have to think it is not the key because it started once you cleared memory. Does the car always start even when cluster does crazy things? Perhaps the cluster is getting flaky. If the key is not too costly try it, you need two anyway.

thanks for all the help, found the problem, it was the battery, yes it started evertime, but today it took it 3 or 4 times before it would start, so went to the dealership, they said one or two things. it was either they key---which is 45 or 60 for the gold one or it was the battery not putting out enough voltage, new battery now problem is gone! finally...... thanks again for all the responses
