Just a thought. How is the battery leave? And then there's my Chicken Soup approach. Disconnect the battery for about a half hour. It's called Chicken Soup approach because it couldn't hurt. Just make sure the battery is fully charged and the key is out of the ignition.

Check battery voltage and battery connections. Low voltage or loose/dirty battery connections can cause these issues. If battery voltage is low then fully recharge it. If vehicle then cranks check alternator output voltage. It should be putting out around 14 volts to keep battery fully charged. If it's not then have it tested it could be bad. Also check the negative battery connections on the frame and motor. If they loose or dirty it can also cause this sort of issue.

Sure sounds like possibly a loose ground connection or faulty alternator issue.

Get the battery fully charged. AutoZone will do it for free. Assume nothing and suspect everything.
