When it's acting up, does it crank but not start? Or does it not crank at all?

Not at all but I took it to tire plus and they said the starting and charging passed bUT so didn't code came up even though I didn't have a check engine light on

They really couldn't tell me what was wrong with it
Expert:  Jerry Newton replied 1 year ago.
OK. Never go to a tire store for diagnostics on something like this, electrical problems aren't going to be their forte. When it acts up, is there a security light illuminated on the dash?

When you say "the starter is fine" I assume that it was tested while it was working properly, yes? And it makes sense that it tests "fine" at that time, but we need to be doing testing when the car won't start. Is this something you want to try to figure out on your own?
