I found a connector in the rear of the vehicle that was making all the trouble.
I disconnected it, sprayed Wd40 into the connector, and reconnected it. Almost a month later and the problem has not returned.
I have the same issues, as well as some others. What / where is the connector that was giving you the trouble? Mine seem to start after replacing the battery. Also, If I disconnected the battery overnight, it would usually fix the issue, but not any more
