Ok...I am at a loss and need help.
My van has decided to stop working all together randomly. No power. I checked the battery cables and figured that was the problem because the battery itself is new. So I purchased and replaced the ground cable because it looked pretty bad. The positive cable looks ok. Once I did that it started up fine. Then when I turned it off all power was lost. Turn the key....nothing. I waited...tried again and it had power, but turned over once sluggishly and then nothing.
The weird thing is it works fine and then suddenly does nothing. It has happened to us 3 or 4 times. Runs fine one trip > next NO power > next "little" power then dies > remove battery cable, re-attach it > works normal > process repeats...
Anyone have any idea??? Is this a wiring problem? Computer problem???
