since it isn't happening all the time you may have to drive it around until it is acting up to find what is happening. When everything is running fine everything will show up as fine.

Check the wire harness to see if it is rubbed through somewhere that could be affecting the

Awesome advice. It's nice to know that even a tech that is having trouble diagnosing a problem has some place he can go to bounce ideas and seek advice from other certified Tech's.
