Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are quite a few things that can cause a no start condition, especially depending on what it's actually doing. If it doesn't crank the most common causes would be the wireless ignition node and the starter. If it does crank but not start intermittently then you're either missing spark or fuel at that time, missing spark would be more likely.

Does the starter not engage when the problem happens?

When it doesn't't start, it sounds like the solenoid "clicks" but the starter doesn't't turn the engine over. I replaced the starter already and have cleaned up the battery clamps and post. The battery load test fine. I have removed the wires from the battery and put them back on and sometimes it will start afterwards.

Have you tried starting it in neutral when it won't crank?
