Right now it sounds like the battery or battery cables. I've seen intermittent no start caused by bad battery cables. The vehicle would always start with a boost. You might try cleaning both ends of the battery cables, see if it helps.

Any testing you do, needs to be done when the vehicle refuses to crank.
