You replaced your battery and alternator because the trip keeps resetting.... Might have been better to ask instead of just throwing money at it

This is quite a common problem and is usually down to a battery on the way out. The fact the car is still doing it despite having a new battery is interesting...

Next time you're out and about try turning on the ignition but NOT turning it over. Let the electrical systems come up and wait 10 seconds. Then fire it up. See if that makes any difference as I recall some folks having to wait a short time before firing up to ensure the trip computer wasn't continually reset.

It’s not the radio memory fuse blown is it? Seem to remember this from my Renault days...worth a look in the dash fusebox
