2002 Merc Sable - intermittent starting problems

Asked by Jul 25, 2016 at 01:41 PM about the 2002 Mercury Sable LS

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2002 Merc Sable (  55 K ) miles goes completely dead after it's been
sitting. Problem has been intermittent for a couple of months but is now
increasing in frequency. when it happens there is no power at all- no
dash,no lights, no radio, no fob. Not even a click when cranking. Waiting a
few minutes and it cranks just fine and runs great. When it does finally start
the radio / clock has been reset like the battery was disconnected. New
battery ( still checks good) and the connections look clean. Any thoughts?
