hello

this sounds like a lack of ECU electrical power

so I'd check over the condition and connection of all the high power fuses in th engine bay fusebox and the relays too, check for corroded contacts and cracks

also check that the main battery connections are on tight and are bright anc clean and also check that the small earth connections that run out of the wirign loom and are secured onto the engine with ring terminals are also tight and non corroded
