If your engine is trying to start backward, very soon it will die! But if that is the reason, clock wouldn't reset when that happens, so I think that you have a problem with electricity. There might be a short circuit somewhere, that makes your battery flat. Check it in the morning before first starting. If it is bellow 11-11,5 you have to change your battery.
