You definitely have a wiring problem. This is the type of problem that the average mechanic will have lots of trouble with because it is intermittent. I would start off by inspecting and cleaning all of my grounds. The start looking at the panel where the electric window fuse is. I would pull the fuse box and look behind it for shorts and bad connections. I would also check the panel where the fuel pump relay is in the same way. Check the fusible links and every fuse in the vehicle. Make sure the fuses are clean and tight. Good luck, and Thanks for using Just Answer.
