JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?

My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here. If there is a loose or corroded battery cable at the battery or leading from the battery to the starter or alternator or fuse panels this can cause an intermittent issue like this here.I have also in some cases seen internal electrical faults with the electronic ignition switch itself cause this issue needing replaced.If these have already been tested/checked into and found o.k. let me know so we can continue. If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service.You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.Thanks Pete

Hello pete , the areas in the fuse box under the hood are hot at the same time that th equip is not working. This i find very strange. They come and go as a package
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
This is definitely a difficult one for me to answer here myself.I will open your question up for others here to see if someone else can assist further on this as there may be others here that may have more info on what to check or do with this issue.I hope you can get this resolved with ease.No need to reply to my last post here unless it is a last resort as it will keep your question locked to me and others will not be able to view it.If you feel you want to continue to work with me on this feel free to reply at any time but keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair this without seeing your vehicle.Thanks Pete
