How old is the battery? Maybe the original one still? My '06 did the same thing. I replaced the battery and haven't had a problem since. Modern electrical systems are so sensitive to anything that isn't 100%. It doesn't really make sense but it did solve the problem. In any event have your battery tested and regardless of how it tests, if its over 5 years old its a good idea to replace it as preventative maintenance.
