My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question was not getting 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 this is lost battery voltage intermittently this can be caused by a fault with the battery cables at or leading from the battery being loose or corroded.I have seen battery cable connections and high resistance in the cables themselves cause faults like this here.I would have these checked if this hasn't been done already.
Thanks Pete
