This sounds like a problem with the positive battery cable which losses connection when hot which is common.

Here are diagrams to help you see how to fix the problem. Its a bit of a job but I have seen this problem before.

Check out the diagrams (Below)

Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see.

I have a 2007 Buick lucerne with the same problem. I have changed the battery because of testing bad, same problem existed replaced ignition switch no problem for about 2 weeks then problem reappeared but not as often, there are no DTC's stored and the problem is hard to duplicate. My mechanic could not find the problem then I ran across this post, all fixed! Thanks 2Carpros! You guys are the best.
