Hi, I'm Ron and I will be helping you today.
Stand by for a moment while I prepare your answer.

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 8 months ago.

It sounds like a bad connection at the power distribution box under the hood where fuses and relays are at.

You may need to take out the box and look underneath it too for corrosion.

Thanks, Ron
