Tee up with good (sympathetic) stealer/indy/trans shop to have the car next time it fails and tilt tray it to them (or drive at low speed - your choice). Let them find codes etc if there are any. Could be bad/corroded electrical connection. Does it happen in the wet or after wet days? Could be a rubber boot off a plug - letting in water. As it is not constant I am not thinking gearbox internals.

I've just changed my wiper blades and now my reverse lights don't work. Should I change my fuel pump relay?
