The same thing happens if we are driving around town running errands. The car starts just fine when we leave the house and even when we start it up at a few stops, and then suddenly it doesn't stop. It doesn't matter how long we've been driving it or letting it sit.
No for the challenging part. I can't replicate it, and the repair shop always says they can't find a thing wrong with it because it starts right up for them when we've had it towed to the shop. They've kept it overnight, driven it around, and every time it starts up just fine for them. They've test the battery, starter, cables, and who knows what else and haven't been able to find the problem. To make matters worse, we've never been able to get it to a mechanic when the problem is happening because it's always happened after mechanics hours or on the weekend and when a mechanic does get to take a look at it, the car starts right up.
The problem is happening more and more frequently with the gap between occurrences getting shorter.
Any suggestions or ideas are greatly appreciated.
