Alternator and battery are charging good. Still at times the vehicle won't start. Jump starts fine. Will continue to start for several days. Then does the same thing. What could be the problem?

Do you
have the same problem?

If htis is an intermittent problem it's hard to diagnose on here, only thing I can tell you is to eitehre when it happens hit starter with hammer on body of starter, if it starts yo may have a flat spot on armature otherwise it's best to check to see if it's getting power when it doesn't start by a pro because he can check the whole system out. You could have a bad or weak battery and have thea tested for load and condition. Auto parts do I for free
