    a wire rubbing against something(metal)or frayd. a wire could be broke inside insulation giving an intermitten power failure orgetting a supply of power. just have to look at all wires and see if any frayd or rubbing against something. just a thought. had same problem on my car just jiggled wires till it died. it was a pickup in dist. wire broke internally.
