I should add, the problems "seems" to be fixed when I unplug the battery, wait a few minutes, then try again. Why? I have no clue. Electrical? Sensor? Why won't dealership diagnostics not pick it up then?

Man, if it would only start so I could do so :) Maybe I'll sit it in the backyard and turn it into a camper. All kidding aside, it's a great car, just got this one issue, if anyone know what in darnations is wrong.

There's a guy here. Kelly Mayo..Goes by Kelly. He knows his stuff. Hell be glad to help you my friend..

Pulled out head relay and fuse, looks good. Once there's power, starter goes great. Replaced battery, checked/tightened terminals. Still same problem. I'll get to car and no power anywhere. Other times I'm driving, flick high beams, and all power dies ... all of it.

check the main battery fuse should be a 60 amp fuse sounds like it's loose.
