    Also the crimp in the braided battery ground cable is know to go bad intermittently causing this type of issue.

    So does the crimp on the + cable.
    Quick way to test is to start the car, and then while running, touch the crimp, if warm it is going to cause trouble. Also volt drop is easily checked with a voltmeter.
    On mine, it was used for a short commute for 4 days, day 5 would not start- low battery. 0.7V drop in the crimp.
