the battery needs to be connected at all times...cable loose=no function~ perhaps your battery cables are loose or corroded~

It would be either no gas or no spark. Does your vehicle have a security system? I know on my GM's they have a security system that if all components of it are not working together, it shuts down the fuel system. Watch on dash for security light on or flashing. Another idea is, electric fuel pumps, in my experiences, when my vehicles hit 9 years, I change the fuel pump, period with good ones. I've seen it many times. How old is your vehicle if it is an 07. Even though you need to find out what the problem is. Next time it quits or before listen at the gas tank filler with cap open for fuel pump humming while someone turns the key to the RUN position NOT start it should hum for about 3 seconds. You should be able to hear it as I do. Good Luck.
