Sounds like you have a loose ground or battery wire. Check your battery connections and main grounds. Try and wiggle things like your fuse box under the hood and main wire harnesses under the dash. See if you can duplicate the problem.

Reelin68, you are right on! Initially I thought it might be an alternator problem but I decided to replace the battery just to eliminate one possible variable. Also the battery was bought from Costco so exchange was very easy. As I was removing the battery, the positive terminal started to spark! It was very close to the metal device that secures the battery to the place. Intermittently it was grounding out and causing the problem. Since I was already at the Costco I decided to go ahead and replace the battery because there is no cost to me. Although it only have been one day, I do think the problem is solved. Thank you for your reply.
