It could also be your volt regulator/rectifier. Similar symptoms, and will eventually shut you down. Easy to replace and about $140.

But if it comes to that get the heavier duty one recommended in the KB and "do not" get an after market one.

I agree with you but its well worth checking and cleaning  ALL the earth connections  as a bad earth connection any where  can lead to mysterious  electrical  problems

Also.... check your Regulator/rectifier for proper voltage. Strange things (and eventually serious things) happen to the electrical when it goes south. (unregulated voltage cooks things)

 I checked all my grounds they were fine.I checked the regulator rectifier charging system is good. I did find however that the starter relay switch was bad. Which was weird because I changed it out when I change the battery the beginning of the year. I guess you can just have bad electrical system pieces.

Thanks for all the help it was much appreciated.

Still working but all is well. Hope all great with you.
