Sounds like the crankshaft position sensor is failing. I have allot of experience with this problem. The sensor is located just off the crank pulley which it gets its signal from.

Gotta go to a dealer. They hook up a machine to match the remote to your car. Probably around $60?

If you're not getting power to anything when this happens then I would tend to think is a main connection of some sort.

Check the battery connections, ground cables etc. Where ever the main cables connect at the battery, starter, and various connections. There are also more than likely 'body ground' straps or cables also. Check to see if all are clean of any rust or corrosion and are tight.

Though not as likely, it MAY possibly be a battery which is loosing connection internally.

I wouldn't recommend going out and buying a battery though. I would simply check the connections as suggested and go from there.

Hope this helps.

There is an old trick using a bic pen top to release the lock on the connector. Take a Bic pen top . Cut the top about halfway. Then slit it on the side to open it up. Bend the pointed pocket point up to use as a lever. Take the top and clip it around the pipe of the filter then push altered pen cap toward the connector. It should slide under just enough to release the lock. Good luck! I had a camaro where the filter was right near the rocker panel

Check with On-Star..Sometimes they down load software to keep current and the version may not be compatible with your auto.. this can sometimes effect the radio and retained power feature.Either that or the retained power system has a malfunction.

It may be an engine cooling problem, ie thermostat, pump etc. seems as thought the car's computer is shutting down systems to prevent some type of major failure. Have cooling system and even electrical system checked.

There are two rods, one has rubber on it. I just replaced the one with rubber on it. Looking at the one rod that was still in place, you can see it mirrors the rod you are going to replace, the placement is just opposite the one that is in there. The rod has a left end that is a square "C" shape, and the right end has a "V" bend right before the end. First position the rod above the seat release cables (if you have them) then position the "V" end near the inside right top of the trunk. Then slide the left "C" end into one of the three slots (I used the bottom slot). Leave it loose so it can rotate with just the tip in the slot. Slide the rod to the right so the "V" is above the spring clip (don't clip it in yet). The right side and the left side of the "V" has to fit into the tabs underneath and inside the top of the trunk. Compare to the left side to see how it fits. Once in place, you can then lower the "V" down to the clip and snap it over the bottom tip of the "V". These steps are easier if the trunk is propped not fully open. I had someone lower the trunk part way while I lay on my back inside the trunk, and I used a small open end wrench to bend the rod slightly to get it to fit into the tabs. The final step is to position the left side of the rod so the torque will hold the lid open. I used a small open end wrench, placed it over the tip in the slot and rotated CW upward until straight part of the rod slid over the hook to hold it in place. This last step had me concerned that I could bend or break the rod, but I went slowly and carefully and was quite happy when it snapped into place and held the lid open.

With the key off, pull out the relay and use a test light or voltmeter to find the hot terminal in the relay socket. Then use an ohmmeter to find the terminal that goes to the pump. The pump terminal will show a few ohms to ground, whereas the other two terminals will either show zero ohms to ground or will show infinite ohms to ground. Use a short jumper wire between the hot wire and the pump wire.
