I saw your post a little further down and I've had the same symptoms before. As a matter of fact I've seen the same symptoms posted several times from different people since I've been keeping up with this forum. I've given the same advice with good success, and that advice is to check the battery cable in the trunk (red one) where it enters the plastic battery box. It sits on a metal lip as it enters the box and wears a hole through the wire enough that the battery doesn't get sufficient charge. Examine the underside of that wire. My solution is to get a couple pieces of un-used fuel hose for it to sit on and to cover the worn area - haven't had the problem for about a year and a half. HTH..
